Default Any Music Vocabulary Experts?

Hey! I guess it only goes to show that you can never know everything. . . but, well, I've found a hole in my vocabulary: music.

Specifically, I'm wondering if any 'music pros' out there know of vocabulary to describe the different sections of a song. My wife and I are both learning the piano, and we're both working on Beethoven's Für Elise. But. . . when I want to tell her which section I'm working on, I realized that I don't have any vocab for that. It there any?

Or should I go ahead and invent it?
