Nice quiz! You might also consider "marcato" for accented.

I'm so bad at music theory! I'd get them all the other way round - I hope - but knowing the words for things... Great quiz just for showing me that I should have paid more attention in music lessons.

grace notes are really short notes before or after normal notes that do not take any time away from the measure. definetly not optional, though!

Please accept "round" for different parts performing the same melody at the same pitch but at different times simultaneously. Also, please accept "acciaccatura" for grace note.
