The audio corpus available today on Internet and Digital Libraries is increasing rapidly in huge volume. We need to properly index them if we want to have access to these audio data. The search engines available in market also find it challenging to classify and retrieve the audio files relevant to the user’s interest. In this paper, we describe an automated classification system model for music genres. We firstly found good feature for each music genre. To obtain feature vectors for the classifiers from the GTZAN genre dataset, features like MFCC vector, chroma frequencies, spectral roll-off, spectral centroid, zero-crossing rate were used. Different classifiers were trained and used to classify, each yielding varying degrees of accuracy in prediction.
