Glossary Of Musical Terms

Written by Dan Farrant

Are you feeling lost in a sea of musical terms? You’re not alone. Music is its own language, and it can be confusing. That’s why we’re creating this glossary of music terms.

From basic terms like ‘melody’ and ‘rhythm’ to more complex ones like ‘negative harmony,’ we break things down in a way that’s easy to understand. Each term links to a guide that explains it further. So go ahead, explore, and make the language of music a little less mysterious with our music dictionary!
