The dictionary is intended for students studying music in years 11, 12 and 13.


The dictionary is reasonably comprehensive, but it is suggested that it is printed single-sided to allow students to add terms that they come across during the year.

Dictionary p2

Students could highlight terms to be learned (perhaps using a different coloured highlighter each year).

It is particularly useful in conjunction with the analysis of music works and in preparation for the external Materials of Music standards at all levels.
