- Clef – a symbol that is placed on a staff that marks the notes for each line and space.
Although there are several clefs used in music, the two most widely used are the Treble Clef and the Bass Clef. Each clef assigns notes to particular lines and spaces.
First we are going to start with the Treble Clef, also known as the G Clef. A handy way to remember this is that the G Clef wraps around the second line, marking all notes on this line to be a G.
The next note on the space above G is A. Remember there is no H. Music notes go from A to G and then repeat starting on A again.
The process continues in both directions until each line and space is marked. Starting with A and going up to G. And then starting with F and going down to D.
