Musicology is the study of music. Within classical musicology, there are terms given to certain musical formats or layouts of pieces of music. For example, let us imagine a hypothetical piece of music that has a certain length of music that we would call Part A. Imagine now a piece of music that is distinct from this Part A, which we will call Part B. If a piece of music arranged these parts in the order AABB, meaning that our Part A was played twice, followed by two playings of Part B, we would apply the term ‘Binary Form’ to this piece.
