My favorite website for improving your music theory and reading skills is www.musictheory.net. Their mobile app, Tenuto, is the same as the browser version but even more user friendly—I highly recommend it! (And no, I don't get a cut...I just think it’s a very effective tool!)
Appcompanist is an amazing app (available for iOS and Android) that provides piano accompaniments for hundreds of classical and music theater songs.
YouTube is also an excellent source for accompaniments and may range from piano only to full band/orchestra. (Note: you can alter tempos by changing the playback speed!)
Apple Music and Spotify have many accompaniments if you search the title of your song and add "instrumental" or "karaoke" to your search.
Ok...this is where I show my age. In my day, I looked everything up in a dictionary (and yes, this is how I learned a LOT of Italian!)
You can still take this old school approach and learn a ton of vocabulary this way, but you can also take advantage of the wonders of technology to help you. Two great sites to check out are Google’s translate tool and IPA Source.
