Dear Teachers, Hello and this is member Sandy B. You have helped me so very much with my questions and hopefully this will help you. Maybe a student of yours, etc. Into Google if you put Virginia Tech Multimedia Music Dictionary you will have a free online audio pronouncing dictionary. Respectfully, Sandy B

Yes, isn't that a good resource!

I enjoyed the appendix section which also has a lot of good information - the A to Z dictionary is not the only offering there.

I've put it in my internet favorites to pull up easily for reference.

On the wikipedia, "Circle of 5ths" is a little in error in the diagram (enharmonics) and way overboard on how much information is given and in what order. It was absolutely confusing from a learning point of view. It made me want to rewrite it. (That's my reaction anyway.)

For people who are always looking for new information, you have to be a little concerned for the accuracy and authenticity of what you are reading on websites. In our haste to share information, information is sometimes a little off and that can really make a big difference overall.
