I often get asked what the point of the Bass Clef is because its existence just seems to make life harder for no good reason!!
Well, the reason we have the Bass Clef is simple – to make music easier to read by avoiding the use of too many ledger lines. However, Middle C in the Bass Clef goes on a ledger line above the stave so there are loads of notes we can write below Middle C without having to use any ledger lines. If you can learn how to read Treble and Bass Clef then you will make a huge leap forward as a musician.
Please do not for commercial purposes, Thank you for your cooperation!All piano sheet music are made by piano fans. If we were to use a Treble Clef (remember, Middle C in the Treble Clef goes on a ledger line below the stave as shown below) then we would have to use loads of ledger lines – this would make the music really difficult to read.
Look at the diagram above – this shows what is often referred to as the Grand Staff (the combination of Treble Clef and Bass Clef).
By learning Treble and Bass Clef you can see the huge range of notes that you will be able to read.


You might find the switch from finger 4 to thumb (1) between bars 5 and 6 a little odd to begin with – your hand might feel a bit like a crab walking up the keyboard particularly after the previous section in bar 5. Stick with this as it keeps the four-note scale from D to G in bar 6 smooth.A similar principle applies at the end of bar 7. You need to switch from finger 5 on the C to finger 3, not 4, on the B, because otherwise you’d end up playing the lower F# in bar 8 with your thumb.
As it is, you need to swing your index finger over your thumb as you move from the G to F#. There’s no need to count all those quavers (eighth notes) and semiquavers (sixteenth notes).
Work out what those notes are ahead of time so you don’t get stuck counting having to count the ledger lines. That note at the end of bar 2 is the G below middle C, and that four note ascending scale (G, A, B, C) repeats twice before hitting the F at the end of bar 3 with your little finger (5).Click to download the PDFClick to hear the MIDI audio^^ Back to top ^^Sing a Song of SixpenceThere are a few slightly longer stretches and finger changes to enable you to play this song more smoothly. In particular, the stretch from the C to lower E at the end of bar 3, and the switch from your little finger (5) to ring finger (4) at the end of bar 6.
