Here is a great way to keep music terminology straight: an online music dictionary! Curated by the folks at the Cincinnati Symphony, this is a tool for students to keep handy as they delve into their music studies this year.
Click on a letter, then on one of the words to hear a pronunciation of the word, and to listen to a musical example. Very cool!
Quick – what’s the one word listed that starts with a U? How about X? Which letter has the most terms? How many of these words do you already know?
Share this with your teacher, and have fun!
