The Grand Staff

Home » Piano Notes » Grand Staff

Hey! Great to see you here in this part of our piano lessons!



Me (David) introducing myself next to the piano.

You'll find that learning to play the piano while reading notes both for the right hand and the left isn't that hard if you'll follow the instructions in this piano lesson.

By now you should be able to read notes on the treble staff and on the bass staff seperately.




"The images and explanations on these piano lessons are so clear!
I can't believe how fast I'm improving... "

The grand staff in relationship with middle C

The grand staff is combined of these two staffs. The top staff is for the right hand and the bottom one is for left hand.
There's an imaginary line which stands for middle C in the middle the staffs.


The staff covers three sets of keys from A-G.

The grand staff (Three Registers)

We don't have to study all the notes right now. I simply want to show you how this works in a layout. For now simply concentrate on the learning to read the notes stated with the letters. We will focus on read these notes in the next few piano lessons.


Three registers in the grand staff
Now, here is a nice realization.
Both clefs are located on the second line in relationship with middle C.
That will help you to read notes faster.
You can always find the G note and the F fast and relate the other notes to these notes.

In the next free piano pieces I offer here, you can practice reading piano notes on the grand staff.
Here's how to place the C position when we read notes on the grand staff (So we have to play with both hands).
