  • April 17, 2007 My Favorite Music Dictionary!

    This music dictionary receives constant use in my studio - from looking up composer dates and birthplaces to uncovering almost every musical term one can expect to encounter in regularly played music, this handy guide has the answers. The layout is clean, the occasional illustrations are helpful and the definitions given...

    are easy to understand. Several of my students were recently quite excited to receive one of these as a prize for a drawing I held. Another student asked if I would offer it as a prize again!
