Vocab Vendredi: Music

Bonjour tout le monde! I am very sorry for the lack of blog posts recently – if you follow me on instagram, then you’ll know that I have been on a cruise to Canada for the last two weeks. Nonetheless, in between visiting exciting cities and teaching French to the passengers, I have been keeping busy with some translations. One of the most interesting of my recent translations was about a music festival and I learned lots of new vocabulary (in both English and French!) which I thought I would share with you…

l’interprète performer
la basse bass
la batterie drums
la composition compositions
la corde string
la harmonie harmony
la mélodie melody
la mélodie accrocheuse catchy melody
le batteur drummer

le percussioniste percussionist
le programmateur programmer
le quatuor à cordes string quartet
le soliste solo artist
le trompettiste trumpeter
