    Performing similarity search in large databases is a problem of particular interest in many communities, such as music, database, and data mining. Although several solutions have been proposed in the literature that perform well in many application domains, there is no best method to solve this kind of problem in a Query-By-Humming (QBH) application. In QBH the goal is to find the song(s) most similar to a hummed query in an efficient manner. In this paper, we focus on providing a brief overview of the representations to encode music pieces, and also on the methods that have been proposed for QBH or other similarly defined problems.
