Performance analysis is a common issue in the musical field, especially for instrument teachers and musicologists. That is why we present in this paper an ontology (technical aspect) and a descriptive model (pragmatic aspect) to allow music teachers and students to create semantic annotation on musical performances. As such, we start by studying recorded piano lessons and analyze the required concepts and roles. We then propose a general performance description model based on these lessons and detail how musicology rules can be used to automatically infer new information on a given piece. Lastly, we discuss the integration of our work to an e-learning web-based collaborative platform for musical education.
