Ahm, yes, you landed in the right place.

On this website, you can do pretty much what you describe:

1. enter a few notes:
2. music tapper:

For a search method that avoids input issues, I would recommend the contour search. That is usually my preferred method when I want to identify a classical piece:

3. search by melodic contour:

Subject: Search for instrumental song?
Is there any way to do an online search for a song that has no words/lyrics? I'm trying to find a particular piece of classical music, but I don't know the name of the piece, nor do I know who composed it.

Are there any search engines or websites that could help me find this song (maybe by typing in a few notes or something)?

Any (real) suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Update: 1. A piece of classical music, despite its lack of lyrical content, is STILL a song.

2. I am asking for a search assistant, such as "Music Tapper" or an online virtual piano, with which to enter the song and perform a search based on the notes I've entered

How to insert music:

Add a bit of sheet music, along with a MIDI file, simply by entering note names in Lilypond syntax between the [L] and [/L] tags.
For example, you can try what happens if you enter: [l]g'4 g'4 d''4 d''4 e''4 e''4 d''2[/l] (use the Preview function if you don't actually want to post this).
You can create these lists of note names by clicking on piano keys here.

How to post an audio recording:

If you just want to sing, whistle, or play a melody so that other forum visitors can hear it, follow these steps:

  1. Record your audio here.
  2. You should notice a 32-character hash code, something like: 2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf
  3. copy this hash code and paste it into a forum post, enclosed in the audio tags, for example: [audio]2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf[/audio]

How to mark a thread as solved:

If the original question in a thread is solved, please mark it as solved using the "solved" icon (or by just typing [solved] into your post). This makes life easier for people who are willing to identify melodies, since unsolved problems are easier to spot that way. If a problem turns out to not be solved after all, just write [/solved] in a new post, and the thread will be labeled accordingly.
