NOTES ON THE GRAND STAFF

Notes are written on the grand staff in order to enable musicians to read the music they are learning. Singers need to be able to read music in order to learn their parts. It is important that singers are able to read not only the notes in the clef they are singing, but in the other clef as well. This is so they can follow along while they are singing with others.

The following staves contain notes in the Treble and Bass clefs. They are divided by notes that are on lines, and notes that are in between the lines, on spaces. There are some useful sayings that can help with remembering note names.
