Reading Sheet Music:
Learning to play the piano can be a lot easier if you are able to read the sheet music you are hearing. Being able to read notes grants you the ability to visualize the music you hear and render it onto the piano more effectively.

We will begin by naming the features of sheet music. The two main sets of horizontal lines are called staffs. The top is the Treble clef (played with the right hand), representing all the notes above Middle C, and the bottom is the Bass clef (played with the left hand), representing all the notes below Middle C. The vertical lines which split up the staffs are called bar lines, while the sections they construct are the measures.

Looking at the notes now, we will first begin at the bottom of the bass clef, and move up into the treble clef. Starting at the bottom line and working our way up, the notes are G, B, D, F, and A. A saying to remember these is (G)ood (B)oys (D)eserve (F)udge (A)lways. The spaces in between these notes are as follows: A, C, E, and G. Another phase to help remember these notes is (A)ll (C)ows (E)at (G)rass. The note at the top invisible line is Middle C (played with the right hand's thumb), which divides the two staffs.

Now we will move up to the treble Clef. Continuing to the notes placed on the lines, these are E, G, B, D, and F, respectivley. A good way to remember this is to change the previous phrase around into (E)very (G)ood (B)oy (D)eserves (F)udge. The notes which fall into the relative spaces between are called F, A, C, and E. This is easy to remember because it spells FACE.

Now you know almost all the notes, but we are still missing some. In order to make a note sharp, you place a '#' on the left side of it. To play this you move up the scale - or to the right - from the original note by half a note (usually to a black key). In order to make a note flat, you would place the simble looking like 'b' to the left of it. To play this you move down the scale - or to the left - of the original note by half a note.
