 Lets Discuss the notes you find on Sheet Music
The Clef
 The treble clef - The treble clef is used for most
musical voices including soprano, mezzo-soprano,
alto, and tenor. It is also used for the higher pitched
instruments such as the alto clarinet, the B-Flat
clarinet, the flute, oboe, violin and trumpet. The treble
clef can be memorized by the following acronyms.
 Lines - Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge
Spaces - F A C E
The Bass Clef
 The bass clef - The bass clef is used for the bass and
baritone voices and lower instruments such as the
tuba, trombone, and sousaphone. The bass clef was
created because the notes for these lower instruments
would be so low beneath the Treble Clef staff it would
be very hard to write music that was easy for players to

What Else you will see on Sheet Music
 The key signature: Some notes are flat, some are natural, and
some are sharp. Which notes are sharp, flat, or natural will be
marked either next to individual notes if they are played as such
one or two times through a piece or in something called the key
signature if they are played as such throughout the entire piece.
 The time signature: Near the beginning of the staff, there is a
symbol marking, or a fraction. This tells how many notes per
measure will be played. The staff is split up into measures. Each
measure is separated by a vertical line. The standard key
signature is 4/4 time. It is usually denoted by a large black C
 Other common time signatures are 2/2 time (cut time), 2/4 time,
3/4 time, and 6/8 time. The time signature is written after the
key signature, but before any notes on the staff
Ok, now we have some basics
