Default Classical Music Terms

Could you suggest me resources for me to learn about these terms and about classical music (not too heavy please)?

concerto, minuet, sonata, suite, prelude, fugue, canon, march, overture, toccata etc.

Yeah, just buy a music dictionary or search Wikipedia. Just for fun, I'll tell you what a Fugue is. A Fugue is a music exercise.

Back in the 60's I had a pocket size soft cover music dictionary that went everywhere I went. I wish I knew what happened to that little book. It was handy as hell during the learning process.

Apart from Google and all the other suspects, Hal Leonard distributes, at least they did at the time I bought it, a book Pocket Manual of Musical Terms. Not large is size by any means but it does seem to cover a lot of what I wanted. Collins Publishers sold an extensive dictionary but, geeze, the contents was a bit too much for me.
