Essentials of Music - Glossary

This website offers information about all aspects of music. It is very easy to navigate, with an alphabetical index at both the top and bottom of the page. It includes audio clips to demonstrate the topics and links to pictures. The audio clips use mostly classical music. The definitions are well-written with many in-site links included for users seeking further clarification. The pages load quickly. The audio player may generate a delay, depending on the system being used. The illustrations are small enough to load quickly for most users. This site is especially helpful if the user has a very specific topic they are researching, like finding the definition of a musical term or a general description of a musical instrument.
