Computer music composition has been recently used by the many musicians and scientists on artificial intelligence. One of main problem here is how to evaluate synthesized music by a computer. In this paper an approach is developed for estimation of the generated melodies by using fuzzy logic and human expertise. This music quality estimation is modeled using a fuzzy ranking approach.
