Thanks for your interest in our ‘Seven Essential worksheets’ for helping students read music.
These worksheets are specially selected from our Printable Music Theory Books series to help students with their music reading
Worksheet #1 – Notes in the Treble Clef
This is a great reminder for all students just on the basics of reading the treble clef notes.
If you’re using a ‘Rhymes’ method of learning the lines and spaces, then you can use that with this worksheet, otherwise you can simply count up ‘like a ladder’ from middle C. Either way works just fine!
Worksheet #2 – Notes in the Bass Clef
This is also a critically important worksheet for those learning piano or bass clef instruments.
Students often have trouble just getting around the fact that Bass and Treble clefs are different!
Worksheet #3 -The Piano Keyboard
This obviously is most useful for piano students, but it can be used for all students to help them understand the relationship between bass and trebe clefs
Worksheet #4 -Note Types
Learning rhythm is probably the most forgotten part of music reading. Everyone in the early stages concentrates on pitch, but that is only part of the equation. Getting a good grasp of the note values is really important, even at this early stage.
We provide two options for this worksheet, depending of if you use European (crotchet, quaver etc) or American (quarter, half note)
Worksheet #5 -Note Types #2
This continues the learning of note types from the previous worksheet
Worksheet #6 – Time Signatures
A critical component for students to understand if they are going to become good music readers is Time Signatures – and this worksheet is really helpful in getting them to understand this topic.
Worksheet #7 – Italian Terms
Lastly, italian terms shouldn’t be forgotten, as Italian is the international language for music, and its really important that students know and understand how to interpret these terms.
