Note reading is the most basic skill in music. There are staffs, pitches, clefs, and more.

Staffs are made up of five horizontal lines and four spaces.

Blank-staff


Pitches are named after the first seven letters of the alphabet (A B C D E F G).

A clef is a musical symbol placed at the beginning of the staff that determines the letter names of the lines and spaces.

The two main clefs are the treble and the bass:

Treble-labled
Bass-labled


A grand staff is a combination of both the treble and bass clefs connected by a vertical line on the left side of the staves (plural staffs).

Grand-staff


Ledger Lines are an extension of the staff. They are additional lines both above and below which are parallel to the staff. Each ledger line contains one note.
