Learning Tools

creative ways to practice

          Music Theory

MusicTheory.Net is a wonderful, FREE tool to help you practice everything from intervals to complex chords. It includes both paper and ear training exercises. We highly recommend this site to prospective music majors.


          Sheet Music is a super helpful music download website, where you can search and read through examples (before you buy) then print and play immediately without having to go to the store.  It will also allow you to play the examples on the webpage so you can listen before purchasing.  you can also transpose some of the materials into another key (great for accompanists that need a specific key or range to fit a singer).  Every instrument, musical style is available, plus there are usually several arrangements so that you can match your current reading and skills level.

          General Music Knowledge

Quizlet.Com is a free study tool. Search for exercises in music and play games, do flashcards, and take tests to boost your musical cognitive abilities (and maybe with some other subjects too!)

Wikimedia Commons is a wiki tool. Follow the link to the music category where you'll find all kinds of musical recordings (contributed from places like the Library of Congress!), images of musical notation, and other contributions to help you study music.

Wikipedia Music Terms Glossary is a free dictionary for musical terms. Enjoy!

Virginia Tech's Musical Terms Glossary is another free dictionary for musical terms.
