Spindrift Music Terms Thesaurus

This thesaurus was conceived as a resource for composers looking for a precise expressive term. If you know what you want to say but you don't know the correct or commonly used Italian term, it's very time consuming to scan the dictionary for the word. You can use the thesaurus to focus on a general meaning, such as fast or sad, and view a list of terms that convey that meaning.

The thesaurus includes common terms and pretty obscure terms that appear in music dictionaries but that I've never seen in a piece of music. If you use some of the other more obscure terms in music you are writing or arranging, musicians might not get the message if they don't know the terms and don't bother to look them up. On the other hand, many Italian terms are so similar to English that their meaning is easy to guess.
