Music Terms
are Easily Accessible

As stated in the title, music terms are quite easy to access with the age of the internet. Even before this age, a good music dictionary at your fingertips was more than enough of a resource in helping to define any terminology that you might come across.

The trick is to find one reliable source in which you are consistently given the correct definition in a quick and concise manner.
 
As a composer, you need terminology in order to make a performer better understand what your composition is all about. After all, you can’t be there for every performance of, for instance, your piano sonata. Without verbal communication the tempi, dynamics, feel of a work and all other details are left for you to describe in writing alone. In this sense, it’s best to be fairly thorough in your manuscript.

As a pianist or other instrumentalist, you are at the mercy of a composer’s details, when it comes to clear and accurate interpretation of a new piece of music. Thankfully, good performers have good instincts as well, so when a piece speaks from the heart, interpretation flows easier (even if the manuscript happens to be a bit vague from the composer’s end).

For more on commonly used music terms and their definitions, flip to the end pages of Ready, Set, Compose!
