Transcript of To be able to read music is necessary to know the name and sounds that are contained in a musical score.

The pentagram (Greek: πεντα, penta, five, and γράμμα, program: writing, drawing, line) or musical tone is where all the notes and other musical signs in the Western system of musical notation is written. Consists of five lines and four spaces or interlining, listed from bottom to top. The lines are horizontal, straight and equidistant.
The basic notes of which we have in Western music are seven
DO - RE - MI - FA - SOL - LA - SI
The Clef
The key (in English is Clef) is a symbol used in musical notation, whose function is to associate musical notes with lines and spaces of the score.
Each of these Clef positions notes between lines and spaces.
Trebel Clef
The Bass Clef
The Trebel Clef
the best way you could remember the name of the spaces in the music staff is taking the letter of the Word “FACE” and put it in every single spaces because those are the letter that represent each of the sound in the staff music spaces.
The process is the same, to remember the names of the spaces in the Bass clef just put the first letter of the sentences “All Cows Eat Grass” and that wil help you up
The Anglo notation
The Anglo-Saxon nomenclature are named differently, they are named with letters of the alphabet; but the first of the series (ie A) is the note "LA", not "DO". Therefore the series would be:
A - B - C - D - E - F - G this is equivalent to (LA - - DO - RE - MI - FA - SOL)
How it works
The music is writing with note that the composer put between lines and spaces. Those lines and spaces have name in order to write the musical note to produce the sound that the composer want. You could learn this with one simple word and 3 sentences that could help you remember what the name of the lines and spaces are.
To be able to read music is necessary to know the name and sounds that are contained in a musical score
The music is written using musical signs that are placed inside the pentagram. Such signs may be placed within, above or below
Trebel Clef
Bass Clef
The Trebel Clef is based on a spiral like a G, and a sort of St. This clef in modern notation is placed in the second line of the score starting from the bottom, and that placement is guided by the start of the spiral shape
The bass clef is shown with two different symbols, although one is currently unused. Both symbols came from a stylized version of the letter F, which in Anglo notation symbolizes note fa. This key places the note on the score onthe fourth line.
Bass Clef
To remember the notes that go into each of the lines you just have to memorize the sentence “Every Green Bus Drive Fast” Taking the first letter of each word an put it on the line, that will help you to memorize it.
To remember the lines, the sentence is “Good Burgees Deserve Fries Always”
