Note Names

Music is written down using notes on a staff.

Notes are symbols used for musical sound. A staff is a set of five lines and four spaces on which notes are written to indicate their pitch.


The Treble Clef is the top set of lines, the staff, in a piece of sheet music. It shows you the notes to play with your right hand. The lines and spaces have letter names. The spaces are labeled FACE starting with the first space at the bottom. The lines are labeled EGBDF (Every Good Boy Does Fine) starting at the bottom line and going to the top line.


The Bass Clef is the bottom set of lines, the staff, in a piece of sheet music. These are the notes that you play with your left hand. The spaces are labeled ACEG (All Cows Eat Grass). The lines are labeled GBDFA (Good Boys Deserve Fudge Always) starting at the bottom line and going up to the top line.

Use the letters of the notes to form words. How many words can you spell?
