When is it appropriate to use semicolons?
A semicolon should be used to link two related parts of a sentence, but where a regular comma is not appropriate. Think of a semicolon as an afterthought to the first part of sentence that needs highlighting. They are both part of the same sentence but they are independent clauses.

What is the difference between regular quavers /eight-notes and quaver/eight triplets?
Regular quavers /eight-notes represent essentially 1/2 a crochet / quarter not beat each. Typically they are played in pairs, therefore making a whole crotchet /quarter note beat together. Triplets differ in that there are 3 quavers /eight-notes that are played in the time of 2 quavers /eight-notes. They are therefore played a little bit faster than regular quaver /eight-notes.
What is the difference between diagetic and non-diagetic music in Film music?
Music for film can be split into two categories: diagetic and non-diagetic music. Diagetic music is music that is part of the film itself which the characters also hear and react to. A good example of this is the canteena scene in Star Wars: A New Hope where the band play in the bar and the characters (and therefore audience) hear them. Non-diagetic music is the music that is scored and played outside the film and heard only by the film audience.
