Treble Staff Notes | Bass Staff Notes


The piano’s treble staff deals mostly with notes higher than middle C, but can house notes much lower.

The treble staff is marked with the treble clef (or G-clef); its notes are as follows:


  • Line Notes: Starting on the lowest of the five lines, E,G,B,D,F.
    Use the phrase, “Every Good Boy Does Fine,” to help you remember.

  • Space Notes: Starting in the first space, F,A,C,E.
    Use the word FACE to help you remember the notes of the spaces.
