    Hello everyone!

    I am a computer science major at Ohio University. This year I am doing a senior design application. My team's project consists of an algorithm that takes as input an unannotated MusicXML file for piano. It then outputs the fully finger-annotated version of the file. Our problem is that we need a large dataset of fully annotated sheet music to "train" our model and these are hard to find on the web.

    Does anyone know where I can acquire such a dataset of annotated sheet music? Or can anyone point me in the right direction? Any help is much appreciated!

    Thanks!

    It's going to be difficult to find *fully* annotated sheet music, as much fingering is considered implicit once you reach a certain level of piano-playing. What you could try is the university music library. It's possible that over the years various students have added their own penciled fingerings to borrowed scores. Of course you would still need to scan and convert the format.

    I anticipate that you will find a higher level of fingerings in the Czerny studies, or maybe in Hanon - probably here more so than in "repertoire" pieces, as they are essentially didactic music, but even here I doubt you will get full annotations.
