Let's start by learning piano notes in the
treble clef. Usually, you play notes with your
right hand (RH) in this clef.
If you can find middle C on the piano, the E on the first line of the treble clef staff, is 2 notes above that.
The notes in the treble clef are:
Saying to memorize the lines: Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge
To memorize the spaces, remember the word FACE.
Middle C is the first note pictured on the left. Note names alternate line to space as they go up or down.
Things are similar but slightly different
for the bass clef.
The notes and the sayings are different. Bass clef is generally used for the left hand.
Saying for the bass clef - Lines
Great Big Ducks Fly Away
Saying for the Spaces:
All Cows Eat Grass
Middle C is the top note pictured on the left. It is the same note as the middle C in the treble clef above.
