The Stave: Where the music is written

Hello everyone! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

๐Ÿ“ Almost every day we write things down: homework, notes, lists or even stories and poems! We use the letters on the alphabet to create words and words to create phrases. Writing things down on a piece of paper or a notebook helps us to be able to remember what we wrote afterwards when we read it back. ๐Ÿ‘€

๐ŸŽต The same happens with music. We may come up with a nice melody and will need to write it down. Or we may want to read and play what other musicians wrote.

For this we use THE STAVE, ๐ŸŽผ and instead of letters, we draw notes. ๐ŸŽถ

The Stave has 5 lines and 4 spaces where we draw the notes.

To write a piano piece we will need to draw:

โœ‹ What the RIGHT HAND is playing. For this we use the Treble Stave, on top, with 5 lines and 4 spaces.

โœ‹ What the LEFT HAND is playing. Fir this we use the Bass Stave, at the bottom, with 5 lines and 4 spaces as well.

๐ŸŽผ Both staves make a Great Stave, where we can read a piece of piano for two hands.

The Stave is not only used for writing down piano pieces, but to write any kind of music. From piano to violin, saxophone or even songs to sing with our voice!
