Note Names

Sight Reading music is often challenging, but so rewarding when this skill is mastered.  Being able to quickly identify and play note names on the Treble and Bass staves are essential to becoming a good music sight reader.  Using a mnemonic sentence will aid retention of note names.  The old ones for spaces are well known.  Below are two new sentences for line notes which may be very useful – Try them out!
