Reading Notes According to Their Placement on the Staff
by: David from www.piano-play-it.com

Hi Chris,

Reading Notes regarding the intervalic relationship with the previous note is handy to do when a melody is based on steps and small jumps.

It's handy to remember the when one notes is place on the line and then next one is placed between that line and the next line you got two neighbour notes.

Notes that are distanced by a 3rd (Visit the Musical Intervals Page for more information over this topic) are both place on the line or between the lines.

However, if your melody involves bigger jumps it's handy to know a few datum-points that will help you find these note in regards with their loctaion on the staff.

Remember G above middle C and F under middle C because their indicated on by the Clefs. It's nice to remember that both of the are place on the second lines on the grand staff.

C above middle C is placed between the third and fourth lines and so is C under middle C in the bass clef. They are symmetric as well.

G above the higher C and F under the lower C are placed just above the last line. (They are symmetric just like G and F on the second lines)

It's easy to find the rest of the notes when you know these datum points.

Besides that my students love the MUSIC NOTE FLASH CARDS

There are 26 colorful bright cards with notes from one ledger line below the staff to one ledger line above the staff for both treble and bass clef on one side and the note name on reverse.

These flash cards help students learn the names of the notes on the staff. Music theory questions and answers on the bottom of each card.

It's fun to learn to read piano notes when you play a game right?

Hope this helps Chris
