In this paper, we propose an efficient algorithm, called MQS-change (changes of Music Query. Streams), to detect the changes of maximal melody structures in user-centered music query streams. Two music melody structures (set of chord-sets and string of chord-sets) are maintained and four melody structure changes (positive burst, negative burst, increasing change and decreasing change) are monitored in a new data structure MSC-list (a list of Music Structure Changes). Experiments show that MQS-change algorithm is an online, single-pass approach to detect the changes of music melody structures over continuous music query streams.
