2. Foreign Terms Exercises and Quiz

Grade Five Music Theory - Lesson 2: Musical Terms Exercises & Quiz!

 

On this page you will find the grade five music theory terms grouped together. They are grouped by type and by language.

 

The types are dynamics, tempo, articulation (attack), expression and "other". The words in the "other" group are mostly grammatical words, like "not", "very", "less" and so on. Grammatical words are usually used with words from the other groups; in a direction like "allegro assai", "allegro" means fast, so it's in the "tempo" group, but "assai" means very, so it is in the "other" group. 

Most foreign musical terms are Italian, but there are also some French and German terms too. Each group has around 12-15 words in it. 

Try learning a group at a time. (There are too many words to try to memorize them all in one go!) Test yourself by pointing the mouse at the English translations - they will disappear until you move the mouse away again.

 If you prefer, you can see the whole list of the foreign musical terms for grade five music theory arranged alphabetically here.
