The Questions Dictionary of Music Summary


All areas of knowledge require at least some specialist language. The language of music can be especially difficult for children, as many of the words in its conventional vocabulary are non-English in origin. In addition to many special words, the language of music also includes many familiar-seeming words which have adopted a special meaning in this particular context (e.g. bridge, key, score), and this can be a source of confusion for children. If you have ever grappled with the problems of trying to guide pupils through the often bewildering maze of music terminology, you may have wished there was an easy to understand reference book, written epecially for pupils, to make it all clearer for them. If so, then wish no more for The Questions Dictionary of Music is the answer you have been searching for. However this dictionary is not just a list of words and their meanings. Its purpose is not only to help children understand the meaning of words associated with music and to use them correctly: many entries also list examples of suggested listening so that they can hear themselves what is described in the text.
