Extracting Alphabetical Note Series from MuseScore MXL
I'm an educator working with students to teach them to read sheet music and extract the notes as pitch codes for software programming into a microchip piezo-tone 'speaker', dah-dah-dah-- at the equivalent pitch for the note(s) they've transcribed, then setting the tempo, and playing with note duration and rests. It's simple fun.
The problem is the length of time to transcribe notes into pitch codes, and do it accurately, without losing the whole purpose, which is to learn to code 'music' into a chipset that only recognizes numerical pitch number and milli-second pause commands. Is there any way to go from MIDI or MXL to say an XLS spreadsheet with a lookup table matching MXL input as alphabetical 'C,D,E,F,G...' notes, with 44,58,78,89,97... pitch code output?
Then students can refer back to the sheet music for time sig, note duration and rests in between each pitch tones, to tweek the code series until it sounds like the music they're trying to represent.
