Bailey's Extra French Vocab!

Bonjour!

My name is Bailey, and at least once a week, I like to share some off the extra vocabulary that I learn outside of Duo! Feel free to follow for more!

Recently I posted a list of music words, and promised I would post part two of that! Last time I focused on more contemporary music words, so this time I'll do the opposite. Here it is.

Today's subject: La musique (Part II)

Le ton - pitch

Le silence - rest

Le dièse - sharp

Le bémol - flat

Le bécarre - natural

La barre de mesure - bar

La partition - score

La notation - notation

Les instruments - instruments

Le bis - encore

Applaudir - to applaud

Le public - audience

L'orchestre - orchestra

La symphonie - symphony

Le chef d'orchestre - conductor

La baguette - baton

Les cordes - strings

Le piano - piano

Le podium - podium

Le violon - violin

L'alto - viola

Le violoncelle - cello

Le contrebasse - double bass

Les bois - woodwinds

Nice, however these are niche words that the average French (and English) speaker would likely not need to know.

I am wondering about the clefs though. In the poetry I like, I'm not sure if they'll become useful.

Maybe? Not sure.

If the worst complaint is that you got some additional info you didn't need, I can't be doing too bad. Lol.

I think "le clé du sol" and "le clé du fa" are great names.

    "Chanter" is a wonderful way of practicing pronunciation in my opinion.

      Oui, c'est pour cette raison que je me suis débarrasser de mon accent anglais. Je suggère à tous mes étudiant(e)s d'anglais de chanter.
