Introducing Treble Clef Line Notes

The treble clef is also called the G clef; this is because the centre circles around the line G.

When discussing line notes ask for volunteers to draw some examples on the board. So often students, of any age, think that a note on a line to mean sitting on the line.

When adding a stem to a note it either is up on the right like a letter ‘d’ or down on the left like a letter ‘p’. The stems on the 3rd line can go either way.

These last two points can be practiced by adding some stems to note heads and then drawing some notes on the board.

The class work sheet provides opportunity to name the notes in more complex orders on each line and an opportunity to draw some line notes.
