- The piano’s grand staff is a two-part staff, consisting of the treble staff on top and the bass staff on the bottom. These staves are connected by a brace, and by barlines throughout the music.
- Organ music uses a three-part grand staff. Its treble and bass staves share braces and barlines, while the lowest staff – a bass staff used for foot-pedal notation – is only connected to the other staves by the very first barline before its clef.
