Music is an art form whose medium is sound. It includes various attributes like rhythm, melody, timber etc. The term melody is a musicological concept based on the judgment of human listener's .Melody extraction from polyphonic music is a difficult task in music information retrieval. In melody identification stage, the main job is to find the vocal melody. In a polyphonic music two or more notes can sound simultaneously, be it different instruments or a single instrument capable of playing
more » ... than one note at a time. The main aim of melody extraction is to produce a sequence of frequency values corresponding to the pitch of the dominant melody present in the given musical recording. In this paper the melody is extracted from polyphonic music signal by using Short Time Fourier Transform and Fan Chirp Transform.
