Some time back, the subject of musical tuning was taken up in this bulletin board. Please take a look at the final entries at:
If you are doing this work as part of a college course, you should most definitely acquaint yourself with "Pythagoras' Comma". It relates tuning to perfect pitch as a violinist would like versus tuning to a tempered scale as a pianist would like.

Good luck and have some fun with this thing!
