        • ______________________
        • ______________________
    • Step 2
      • What clef do you use?
      • Your Clef can be found at the beginning of each new song.
      • The Treble Clef/G Clef is used for high-Pitched/sounding instruments like the flute, trumpet & violin.
      • The Bass Clef/F Clef is used by lower sounding instruments like the tuba & cello.
      • The piano uses both the treble and the bass clefs because it can play high and low pitches at the same time.
    • Step 3A
      • Memorize the lines and spaces for your clef.
      • Use a catchy phrase to help you.
        • For the treble clef lines try: Every Good Boy Does Fine.
        • For the treble clef spaces try FACE. Hint: Space rhymes with FACE 
    • Step 3B
      • Memorize the lines and spaces for your clef.
      • Use a catchy phrase to help you.
        • For the Bass Clef try: Good Boys Deserve Ferraris for the Lines.
        • For the Bass Clef try All Cows Eat Grass.
    • Step 4
      • Once you have memorized What these look like:
        • Clef
        • Staff
        • Lines
        • Spaces
      • Grab your instrument and a pencil
    • Step 5
      • Most music texts begin by introducing the first 3 notes.
      • Let’s begin by looking at the first three notes for the trumpet.
      • The first three notes for the trumpet are:
      • -E flat, F natural & G.
    • Step 6
      • Find our first song in the music text titled-”Four In A Row” page 7 #10.
      • Grab your pencil and ask yourself if the first note you see is on a line or a space.
        • Okay it is a space………..
      • Count from the bottom using FACE 
      • So it’s the bottom space right?
        • Then it is an F right?
    • Step 7
      • Do you notice anything?
      • That’s right-
        • The first four notes are exactly the same.
      • Go Ahead and write the letter F under the first four notes.
    • Step 8
      • Look at the next measure.
      • Ask yourself is this note on a line or a space??
        • It’s a line right?
      • Count from the bottom using Every Good Boy Does Fine.
        • It’s the second line up, right?
        • So that’s a G correct?
    • Step 9
      • Okay, now write the letters names under each note for the remaining measures.
      • Next look at your fingering chart on page 6.
      • For an E= press valves 1and 2 @ the same time.
      • For an F = press valve 1
      • For a G= press 0 valves
    • Step 10
      • Under the letters you have just written please, add the valve #’s under each note.
      • Once you have completed this sing the letter names.
      • Next, try playing the song at a slow tempo using the correct fingerings.
