This is a discussion about コーラス

Right way?

Hi, i wonder if this is the right way to describe a chorus (main repetitive part) of a song?

Also, how do you say a verse (of a song too)?

Yes, コーラス can be used to refer to the part of a song that repeats. ヴァース or バース can be used to refer to a verse.

In fact, here is the Japanese Wikipedia article about the "verse-chorus form" in popular music.

Keep in mind they don't always think about songs in 100% the same manner as western people do. See for example https://realsound.jp/2013/12/j-popjuju.html
