Music Theory Worksheet - Lesson 8: The Grand Staff
Downloadable in pdf format for music students
This music theory worksheet introduces the grand staff and the notes on the entire range of the staff. The grand staff represents the treble staff and bass staff joined together. The brace is a curved line and bar line that combines the treble and bass staff. A ledger line is a small line added to the note when it is either above or below the staff. The Middle C note is on the ledger line that is between the treble and bass staff.
In this worksheet, students can practice the grand staff by adding the brace, bar lines, and clefs to bar lines.
