Dear Dave/Hooktheory’s support team,
First of all, I want to thank you for the great work you have put into Hooktheory! I have enjoyed using both Hookpad and Theorytab for personal music projects, and they have been a very valuable resource.

About me and what I would use the data for: I am pursuing a master’s degree in Artificial Intelligence, and exploring options for a thesis/research project on the interface of AI and music. I do not have a specific research question in mind yet, but I think the data could be valuable for automatic pattern/structure discovery, chord extraction, harmonic analysis and more. I would
In short: what is your current stance on sharing hooktheory’s dataset for research purposes?
