An Online, Interactive, Music Dictionary

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.

Bookmark this link,  so it will be nearby the next time they wonder if timbre has something to do with a tree falling!

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!
