Music Theory Worksheet - Lesson 9: Ledger Lines
Downloadable in pdf format for music students
This music theory worksheet introduces what ledger lines are and how they can be added above and below the 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 naming notes that have ledger lines in both the treble clef and bass clef, then practicing writing their own notes with ledger lines.

Ledger lines extend the staff upward and downward, to allow notes to be written beyond the five lines of the staff. The following shows examples of notes that can be written above and below the staff using ledger lines.
