Staff Treble + Bass Together a.k.a. F Clef a.k.a G Clef (multiple = "staves") But Mr. Coffill... those look complicated!
How do I draw those on my staff paper? Bass/F Treble/G Spaces: F-A-C-E Lines: Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge Spaces: All Cows Eat Grass Lines: Good Burritos Don't Fall Apart - Please label each line and space on your new treble staff Please label each line and space on your new bass staff Okay, I get that, but yesterday I saw some scary-looking notes with a bunch of lines! "Ledger Lines" "taking the staff with you beyond its normal reach." Count up or down from a note that you know to find the note you don't. So what do clefs do? Clefs serve as a frame of reference.
They give us information that we can use to find other notes. On your paper, please copy these down

and label the remaining three notes. The listed assignment will be moved to tomorrow... AP Music Theory
