Finding recordings and scores using Keyword (with Boolean)

  • 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.
  • Use parentheses: ( ), called "nesting, to groups terms together so you can combine even more concepts or Synonyms. For example: (cello OR violincello) or (beliefs OR attitudes). Using both terms ensures you will get relevant results.
  • Use the limits to limit to recordings, scores or videos.
