Abstract: Symbolic music generation is an important task in the field of music information retrieval. This paper provides a comprehensive summary of deep learning-based symbolic music generation, and existing methods are classified, analyzed, as well as compared. The research status and tasks of symbolic music generation are introduced in detail. It expounds the representation and coding methods of symbolic music, and focuses on the induction, comparison and analysis of deep learning-based models, which are divided into three categories according to different basic structures. It expounds and summarizes the evaluation criteria and datasets in the field of symbolic music generation, and evaluates the performance of representative models. The existing problems in this field are pointed out and corresponding prospects are put forward.
