    • The Treble Clef The Treble clef tells you Treble Clef: where to find the note “G” The Clefs curl circles around the note G. This line is G!
    • The Bass Clef The line is F! The bass clef represents lower notes (hence why it is usually on the bottom staff) The clef tells you where the note “F” is by having two dots straddle the F line on that particular staff
    • A Few Things… From finding out where the G and F are on the respective Treble and Bass clefs, you can then figure out the rest of the grand staff alphabetically Music, however, only has notes A through G There is no note for “H” So when you label the staff, it goes as such: ABCDEFGABCDEFG- and so on
