  • April 06, 2012 An absolute must for all piano teachers.

    I have used this Dictionary for my students for years. It is a good size to keep closeby, full in all the musical definitions needed and gives an adequate history of famous composers. One year I gave it as a Christmas gift to my students. It gets 5 stars from...

    me.

  • June 04, 2010 Wonderful Student Tool

    This is a wonderfully comprehensive teaching tool, and I insist on each student having a personal copy. It contains all the definitions a musician would wish to have, plus a short bio of composers and other music luminaries, as well as scales, chords, and much more. The only improvement I...

    've been able to make on it is that I have it spiral-bound, as it has a flimsy backing and won't lay open.

  • November 14, 2007 Hello!

    Well, thank you so much it was delivered very fast, but I really think if I could be at some musicsheet&book store I would never buy it, because I know everything what in that book, sinse music scool which i finished in 1991 in Soviet Union. Then I finished...

    music colleg and then conservatory (Master Degree)And I had much better (more information) dictionaries and books but I did't bring them here and anyway they were wrote in Russian. So I really want to read in English and if you would help with some advise I would be so happy! I would like to go to music store where they are??!!! Or I can buy music books and musicsheets only through Int.? I am so sorry for my mistakes in English.

  • December 01, 2002 Alfred Essential Dictionary Of Music

    I am a piano/theory student in Australia and received this dictionary as a gift from another student when I finished Preliminary exams. I still use it every day for learning General Knowledge, terms and giving a boost to theory (ie, voice range, principle). I'd give it 5 stars...

    cos it really is the essential dictionary of music. If you havent bought it yet i suggest you consider it.
