I'd like to find a book or a website with explanations and examples of different forms. Some history about the development of the form would be nice too but isn't necessary. If anyone has any recommendations I'd appreciate it.

Can we get a definition of 'form'?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Musical_form
Preludes, minuets, waltzes, scherzos, nocturnes etc. are all different musical forms.

I'd like to read about what distinguishes a minuet from a waltz or a mazurka or a polonaise. That's what I'm looking for with examples to help explain it and that I can analyze for further understanding.

edit: thanks rockingamer. I'll have to go over to imslp and find some examples on my own I guess.

Something more detailed would still be nice though so if anyone else has more sources I'd appreciate it.

I got a handbook to classical music at a library booksale for a buck and it has detailed entries on what you're looking for, composers bio's and song overviews.

It's very detailed, if you're going to university for Classical studies I'd definitely recommend it.
