The Basics of Music Notation
Transcript of The Basics of Music Notation
Musical Clef - Treble Clef
At the beginning of the staff there is a clef. In this case the treble clef indicates that the lines will represent the notes
E G B D F, and the spaces F A C E. (The treble clef is also known as the "G" clef because it starts on the "G" note)
Treble Clef - Lines and Spaces
You can use a mnemonic to remember what note is represented by each line and space. For the treble clef you can use: Every Good Boy Deserves Fruit for the lines and F A C E for the spaces (bottom to top).
The top of the staff represents sounds higher in pitch, and the bottom of the staff represents sounds lower in pitch
Music that you play is written onto a group of five lines and four spaces called a staff or stave.
Treble Clef - Video
The following video discusses the staff, treble clef, lines and spaces. It also mentions the concept of ledger lines and how to represent pitches beyond the range represented by the treble clef staff.
