This volume is a dictionary and reverse dictionary of music abbreviations, acronyms, and initialisms for musical terms, monograph and serial titles, academic degrees, and much more. While the focus of the dictionary is on 'classical' music terms, entries representing jazz and folk music have also been included. The first half of the volume is arranged alphabetically by the abbreviation, while the second part is arranged alphabetically by the full form of the entry, followed by the abbreviation. This resource is intended to eliminate much of the need to cull definitions from dozens of separate music and general dictionaries and encyclopedias.
