The technique of fingers and arms movements in piano playing are equivalent to the body movements’ technique of athletes. Extensive researches and studies had been employed to improve athletes’ performance through technologies, however, researches on piano technique through scientific and technology means are lacking in comparison. One area in piano technique research is particularly important, which is finger position and pressure measurement applied by the musician while playing the musical instrument. One common problem that these researches faced is the sensors used are directly in contact with the pianist, which causes a change of piano playing experience. These sensors are considered to be intrusive to the piano playing experience. Concluding the challenges faced by current technologies, the proposed solution for this problems should meet few a criteria, where the proposed sensor system should be a non-intrusive sensor that remotely tracks the finger and arm position of a pianist.
