Dealing with the main topic of the unit, I have prepared several vocabulary-related sheets from several dictionaries. They are to be used, looked up and checked before speaking or writing about music. The idea(r) is to highlight words, phrases or collocations you think you will / might use in your speech or writing and of course do put them into practice later.
Types of Music, Singing in General, Music Collocations, Usage Note. Music miscellany, Talk about music
