In the subject of these research works, “Tonality and Tonic (key note)” of the music (T & T) has been attracted a great deal of attention as an important index to determine the character of music. This paper deals with tonal structure recognition method of Japanese favorite songs using information about pitch name and time-duration that appear on musical score (sample data 2, 777 pieces, 274, 737 notes).
