The first database I searched was Education Journals (ProQuest). Choose ‘Advanced’ to bring up more search options. There’s an option on the right-hand side of the screen for ‘Thesaurus’. Here we can search for a term that would limit our search strictly to our topic. I searched ‘vocabulary’, which brought up ‘vocabulary development’ [check the box next to the term and choose 'add to search' at the bottom right of the page]. I also added in ‘music’ in the second search box and specified that I wanted the term to occur in the Abstract (chose from the drop-down menu). That should give us some good options like this one: Lexical learning in sung and spoken story script contexts.
