Please allow me that, apart from my regrettable ignorance of the Hungarian language, I remain Magyar in my heart and soul from birth to the grave. As a consequence, I earnestly wish to further the progress of Hungarian music.

Glossary of academic and music terms

Hungary is a small monolingual country, which might make it difficult for international students to make themselves understood, as well as understand important information related to their studies. With the help of teachers and students, the staff at the Study Department therefore have compiled lists and summaries of academic and music terms in English, Hungarian and Japanese, which will hopefully help international students express themselves when there is a language barrier.

Suggestions, corrections, new entries, and versions in other languages are appreciated and warmly welcome. We would like to make this a joint-project that will benefit the students, the teaching staff and the staff of the Study Department.
