Reading Treble Line Notes on a Staff
Did you know that a STAFF is the set of 5 horizontal lines and 4 spaces and represent a different pitch in music?
Try this; lift up your right hand and angle it to the side so that your thumb is lower than your little finger. Your fingers now represent the 5 lines of the STAFF. The spaces in-between your fingers are the 4 spaces inside of the STAFF.
When reading notes on a STAFF always read from the bottom – UP. Therefore we would have Line 1 …as your thumb, Line 2 … as your pointer finger, Line 3 … as your middle finger, Line 4 as your Ring finger and Line 5 … as your Little finger.
This Reading Line notes worksheet, 2017 is yours free to download. Everything is always a little easier with visual aids.
Just as a little note, drummers use a percussion STAFF where the staff doesn’t represent pitches in music but the different percussion instruments they are to HIT. Just thought I’d throw that in there.
