    Thumbs up

    Does anyone know any good sites out there for music symbol meanings? Now that I'm going through new music I'm seeing some stuff that I just don't understand! Some of it I used to know but I don't remember anymore. Some of them I swear I have never seen in my life. There are too many for me to describe right now, but a good link would be a great help.

    OK, thanks&#33; I was having trouble finding one, too. Maybe I just need to find a good music dictionary.

    I was looking for one a few days ago. I couldn&#39;t find anything. :unsure:

    Actually, I&#39;m quite embarassed because I used to know this stuff. But I&#39;ll see if you guys can help. I&#39;ll write down the ones that are causing me problems. One was a wiggly line aboce the note (not a trill,) maybe a turn? A turn&#39;s sort of a one note trill, right? I used to have a music folder with a lot of this info. Such a shame the cardboard didn&#39;t hold up

    Actually, I found one. It&#39;s a little cumbersome to read, but here it is:

    They have books on just musical notations? I think I need one a lot.

    Unhappy

    :angry: Most of the pages I found are full of symbols I already know. It&#39;s the ones that don&#39;t show up all the time that are giving me grief&#33;

    Although, I did find a nice one for preschooler&#39;s&#33;

    Are you talking about the kind of wiggly line looks like the letter "s" on its face? Mozart uses that a lot, and I can attach a diagram of what it means if that&#39;s the one.

    Thought this might be a good topic to ressurect - and guess we can also use some help of this type at some point or another.

    Found this site: http://www.dolmetsch.com/musicalsymbols.htm that may be of value to this community.
