Note Names Lesson

Click on the link below to read about how notes are written on a staff. Recorder players read from the treble clef.  So, focus on the treble clef section only. The Classics for Kids website uses the phrase Every Good Boy Does Fine to help remember the notes on the lines and FACE to remember the notes in the spaces. What fun phrase did we learn in class to help us remember the notes on the lines? Email or DOJO me your answer, if you remember! (Third graders, we may not have gotten to this yet. We will learn next year-no worries!  Once you are done reading, play the note name game and see how many words you can spell by figuring out the notes. Have fun, musicians!
