Lesson 17: Sharps Music Theory Worksheet

This free music theory worksheet teaches about sharps.  A sharp sign raises the pitch of a note by a half step.  A sharp sign looks like a pound sign (#) and is placed to the left of a note to raise its pitch.  On the piano, the black key to the right of a white key is a sharp (a half step higher).

Alternatively, if you would like to organize your music practice times, I recommend Music Instruction Forms: 1-Year Journal, which is a journal that includes a weekly practice calendar to track a student’s practice days and times and the total practice hours per week.  It includes 52 weekly lesson plans to carry the student through a full year’s study. Completed journals provide a running record of the student's progress.  Check out the Music Instruction Forms: 1-Year Journal series.


What this worksheet is about:
On the keyboard of a piano, the black key to the right of a white key is a half step higher and called a sharp.


To say the name of a sharp note, say the letter name first and the sharp next.  For example, "F sharp". To write a sharp note on a staff, place the sharp sign to the left of the note.  See the following for examples.
