Music Theory Worksheet - Lesson 5: The Staff - Note Reading Exercises
Downloadable in pdf format for music students
The fifth lesson of the staff music theory worksheets relates entirely to note reading exercises. It provides helpful acronyms to help students remember how to read the lines and notes on the staff. To read the treble clef line notes, use the acronym "Every Good Boy Does Fine". To read the treble clef space notes, use the acronym "FACE". To remember the bass clef line notes, use the saying "Great Big Dragons Fly Around". To help with the bass clef space notes, remember "All Cows Eat Grass". I hope students find this helpful in remembering the notes on the treble and bass clef notes.

Need help with note reading? I think that the best way to improve note reading skills is through flash cards. It helps speed up your recognition of notes and allows you to practice note reading away from the instrument.
These Alfred's Essentials of Music Theory: Note Naming Flash Cards include 60 note naming cards, containing 96 notes and rests in the alto, treble and bass clefs. It is organized into 4 progressive sets and may be used with any beginning music theory course. Highly recommended!
