|STAFF||Five parallel, equidistant lines with spaces in between.|
|A vertical line placed in a STAFF to mark off MEASURES|
|MEASURE||Part of a STAFF set off by BAR LINES|
|CLEF|| Treble Clef
|Musical symbol that names lines and spaces. There are two :
TREBLE Clef and BASS Clef
|TREBLE CLEF||– Also called the “G” clef because the loop at the bottom wraps around the line on a staff for the ‘G’ note above middle ‘C’.
– The Lines designate the following notes, in order from the bottom, up : E,G, B, D, F. – This is easily remembered by using the mnemonic “Every Good Boy Does Fine”
– The spaces are for the notes F, A, C, E, in order from the bottom up.
|BASS CLEF||– Also called the “F” clef as the dots are placed above and below the line marking ‘F’ below middle ‘C’.
– The lines are labelled G, B, D, F, A or “Good Boys Do Fine Always”
– The spaces are called A, C, E G or “All cows eat grass”
|LEDGER LINES||Lines added above or below the staff. In the picture (left) both notes with ledger lines indicate middle C.|
|All together:||C to C to C|
