Maestro means master;teacher. That's understood, but why is it that when someone calls for music to begin, they say, ¡Música!, and it is followed by ¡Maestro!? Why isn't it just, ¡Música!? Is there a story behind that, or are they just that admirable to the master's skills that they want to make it clear that only el maestro is to play the music? :?: ... :?

In this case "maestro" means "orchestra director".

[quo]*Quote from * Lenguas In this case "maestro" means "orchestra director".[/quo] Hola, Lenguas! I had a feeling that it had something to do with "orchestra", but I thought that couldn't really be right, because orchestra translates to orquesta. I didn't think anything about it meaning "orchestra director". :oops: Duh! :roll: You put an end to my complicated thoughts. So, no more looks of confusion on my face when the next person says, ¡Música, Maestro!. I'll just be like, "Sí, ¡Música, Maestro!". :wink: :) ¡¡¡Muchas Gracias!!!
