THE TREBLE CLEF

This is the treble clef. It is also known as the G clef.

 

THE G LINE

In part, because it resembles the letter G. But more importantly, because it points to and defines the G line on the staff. Notice where the red dot indicates where the treble clef points to the G line. Any note placed on this line will be the pitch G.

 

THE TREBLE CLEF LINES & SPACES

Here are the rest of the notes in the treble clef. The notes are labeled with the first seven letters of the alphabet. We can see the bottom line is E, and as we move up, each space or line moves forward through the seven letters, wraping back around to A after the letter G.
