Music has played such a vital role in the past and even in today's culture. Some may want to contribute to the musical society we currently possess, yet many do not have the access to such instruments, sheet music, tutorial books, etc. even though their musical talent is there. On the other hand, some people may want to play an instrument and would have to buy equipment, booklets, etc. to help learn and develop the skills for the instrument. However, let's say that the said person does not desire to play the instrument any longer. He/she would have to go through the hassle of returning the items that he/she bought or sell them. Instead of this tedious work, our group decided to make a virtual instrument that can play music using a specific instrument. It works with all ages and can essentially be a "demo" instrument or a real instrument that is playable.
What it does
You can choose between a variety of instruments including piano and trumpet for a much lower cost than the average instrument. The player can learn the keys, while playing their desired genre of music to a specific song. It uses a Leap Motion to detect your hands and teach you accordingly to the song. The way we teach our students is to give them a Guitar-Hero based game to make the game less "dry" and engaging.
How we built it
We first had used pygame to get the overall design and layout of the game. Then we went ahead and did the technical facets and implemented Leap Motion to sense our hand gestures. Then python would process this and see if the user did perform correctly or incorrectly.

What's next for Celebeaty
Next time, we will add an option exclusively for the blind, where they can benefit by playing keys also. We will also add a freestyle mode next time, which we could not have done this competition, because of time constraint purposes.
