Pitch / The Staff / Treble Clef

Now we learn to notate the highs and lows of sound.

Pitch tells you how High or Low a sound is.


Pitches are named by letters A through G.

How do we know which pitch (letter name) to play?

The Staff


Notes are written on a 5 – line staff.

The notes are placed on a line or a space.

The Treble Clef

The treble clef is also known as the G clef. It tells you that the second line from the bottom is the note G.



The staff is divided into Measures.

Measures are divided by Bar lines.


A Double Bar indicates the end of a song.
