2 Music Notes

2a – _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Do _ _ Fa _ _ _ _ _ _

The 2a music reading below is the first music reading (there is no 1a music reading). There are only 2 different music notes on the staff, the Do in color and the Fa in black (“2” means 2 different notes, “a” means the new music note to learn – here the Do – is in color).

Play the audio file and say or sing – sing is better – the name of each note – or Fa – while you hear it.

If you don’t know anything about the 5 lines of the staff (or stave) and the treble clef on the second line of the staff, the image below could help you:

The Bass Clef (F clef) is placed on the fourth line of the staff. So, the music note on the fourth line is a F.

You can also read about the 5 lines and 4 spaces of the staff and how the F (Bass Clef) fixes the name of the music notes (A B C or Do Re Mi). These links and others are available inside the Main Menu, Music Theory (except understanding the staff and the treble clef, you don’t need to learn music theory to read music notes).
