Whatʼs New
Reading Steps and Repeated Notes in the Bass Staff
Reading G, A, and B in the Bass Staff

Now we add the notes between our landmarks F and C, giving us all five notes of the Middle C position for the LH. We continue to bold the F line, and have removed letter names from F and C. Letter names for G, A, and B are given only in the first measure.

In this piece, students discover that:

  • Notes can be on a line, or in a space.
  • Lines and spaces help us know the distance (step or skip) between notes.
  • They can see the direction notes move (up, down, repeat).
  • They can know what notes to play by looking at which line or space they are on.
