Most educational musical software is designed for occidental music and instruments. As Arabian music has special features, utilization of most available musical software is limited. This article presents educational tools developed for Arabian woodwinds. These tools are based on a recently
proposed system devoted to melodic retrieval of Arabian woodwinds and benefiting from an open Musical Instrument Digital Interface Toolbox. Four applications are presented and evaluated: Automatic Music Transcription of Arabian woodwinds, Music Information Retrieval to serve Arabian polyphony,
query-by-playing for musical libraries and a tool for melodic analysis.
