  • Use quotation marks around phrases. "French Horn"
  • Truncate uisng "?" This is an excellent way to improve your search results. For example, Sona? will find Sonata, Sonatas, Sonatina, Sonatinas etc.. Truncating means you don't have to search for these words separately by typing each one individually.
  • Use "AND" and "OR" to combine words or phrases. These are known as Boolean operators.
