I can read the three lines above treble clef - A C and E, I remember that when you reach the top line of a stave, the notes repeat as they did in the spaces. A big part of learning to read the notes is knowning them inside and out blindly to a point where you can see them in your sleep.Way back when I first started lessons, my teacher had me play and say the note names. The grand staff is formed by combining the treble clef and bass clef with an added leger line, middle C. The following diagram shows you how the notes on your piano correspond to the bass and treble clef.
Learning how to read sheet music for piano can be quite daunting at first because it looks like a series of lots of lines and dots with several random symbols thrown in for good measure.
The key thing to remember is that piano music simply uses the basic elements of sheet music – it just has a lot of them because a piano player has 2 hands and a total of 10 fingers and therefore the potential to play a lot of notes at any one time. It helps to remember this when practicing as you can practice one hand at a time and make significant progress with whichever piece you are wanting to play. Some contemporary piano music has one stave (usually Treble Clef) for the right hand and chord symbols above or below the staff.
If you have read my previous blogs, The Piano Keyboard, and Locating Middle C On the Piano Keyboard, you should be able to identify all the notes on the piano keyboard, and locate Middle C. Now lets take a first look at how to read piano sheet music, and how it relates to the piano keyboard.
Going up the C Major scale from middle C, next is D, then, E, F, G, A, B, and back to C one octave higher, then D, E, F, G and so on.
Randy Cole -I grew up in a small town in northwest New Jersey, and was privileged to have a mother who loved music.
Reading it quickly and translating that into which key to press in time to the beat is a somewhat different matter.


I kept it by my old piano way back then.The forum has shrunk the pic so it looks crappy above. A perpendicular line and bracket (known as a brace) joins the two staves (plural for staff) together. Usually (but not always), the top stave is written in the Treble Clef and the bottom stave is written in Bass Clef. The right hand plays the top half, designated with a Treble Clef (Example #1), and the left hand plays the bottom half, designated with a Bass Clef (Example #2).
Going down the C Major scale from middle C is B, A, G, F, E, D, and back to C one octave lower, then B, A, G, F, and so on (Example #4). You want to move your fingers freely across the keys with as little movement of your hand as possible.
So use this link to download the picture full-size: LINK TO PICTUREThe original version only went from C2 to C6, and I learned to read that range without problems. Todays reading target is to try and memorize the bass notes to the third section, and the treble notes to the fourth section of magnetic rag - I learnt a half of each page yesterday - and then I need to spend a few days practicing before learning the bass of the final fourth section, then I just have the ending left to learn and can carry on practicing it without the score.
Later on she would write out notes on muic paper, and I would have name them.As I learned more music, part of the learning method was to say the names of the notes as I played them. The lines and spaces are named after the first seven letters of the alphabet, A, B, C, D, E, F and G. The top stave shows the notes that should be played with the right hand, whilst the bottom stave shows the notes to be played by the left hand.
In this case, you would play the tune with your right hand and improvise the chords with your left hand. Practice the following finger techniques to target dexterity in the left hand:In ascending scales, the 3rd or 4th finger crosses over the thumb.


I seem to be fine with learning a whole page of single line notes in a day now if I really concentrate and focus, I would next like to ultimately be able to learn and memorize a whole page of both hands everyday.
To this day, I will do this when learning the music, and I have very little problems reading music at all.Ledger lines that are for notes way up on the staff do present a problem for me now, but that is due to eyesight. Every note from middle C upwards including the notes on the treble clef is played with the right hand. Your thumbs are #1, your index fingers are #2, your middle fingers are #3, your ring fingers are #4, and your pinkies are #5 (Example #5).
So I expanded it 6 notes to the low side and 7 notes on the high side.I still have trouble with the between-the-staves notes with many ledger lines. Maybe I can try and learn all the remaining notes by the 10th may, and then I can start learning the notes to the next piece while learning both hands together on the current one.
For some reason they become really small and at a quick glance, I have a hard time identifying them. I am currently needing to vastly improve my reading and learning speeds more importantly than my playing ability, which is making steady and gradual progress. So having said this, I find that if I slow things down and take the time to figure out the notes, then the problem is solved. For instance, you are on the treble clef, top line (F) and the next note is two ledger lines (4 steps) up.
