Music is written down using notes on a staff.
Notes are symbols used for musical sound. A staff is a set of five lines and four spaces on which notes are written to indicate their pitch.
The Treble Clef is the top set of lines, the staff, in a piece of sheet music. It shows you the notes to play with your right hand. The lines and spaces have letter names. The spaces are labeled FACE starting with the first space at the bottom. The lines are labeled EGBDF (Every Good Boy Does Fine) starting at the bottom line and going to the top line.
The Alto Clef is directly in the middle of the staff, in a piece of sheet music. Many do not learn this clef, as it is primarily only used for the viola, the viola da gamba, the alto trombone, and the mandola. The lines and spaces have letter names. The spaces are labeled GBDF starting with the first space at the bottom. The lines are labeled FACEG starting at the bottom line and going to the top line.
The Bass Clef is the bottom set of lines, the staff, in a piece of sheet music. These are the notes that you play with your left hand of the piano. The spaces are labeled ACEG (All Cows Eat Grass). The lines are labeled GBDFA (Good Boys Deserve Fudge Always) starting at the bottom line and going up to the top line. And the last piece of important information is that the low C in treble clef (the note that is in the middle of the piano keyboard) is the note just below the staff on the first ledger line below the treble staff AND that note is the same note as the first note ABOVE the bass clef staff (the note on the first ledger line above the bass clef staff is ALSO middle C. So there is one note which is SHARED by both the treble and the bass clef.
