Complete the following notation activities in this booklet. Read the
instructions carefully and look at the examples that have been
given to you. They will help you fully understand the tasks.

Extension Activity
You may wish to research what a bass clef is and learn the note
names. Try to come up with an acronym to remember the notes
on the lines and those on the spaces.


What you will be expected to achieve
Complete exercises in this booklet.

1 At the end of this work most of you should
   Have learnt the notes of the treble clef
   Be able to write them.
   Be able to correctly name them.


2   Some  of you may not manage that much but can
     Identify note names.


3 Some of you may go further and
Learn what a bass clef is and know what the notes on the bass clef
are called.




                                                                3
Notes on the Treble Clef.

These are the note names for all of the notes on the treble clef.




This should help you remember the names of the notes on the lines of the
stave.




This should help you remember the names of the notes in the spaces of
the stave.




Task
To write the note names under the notes to find the missing words in the
story. The first word is completed for you as an example.


                          Fred’s Night Out




Fred was a hamster who lived in a   C A G E.     He lived on a diet of
seeds




and                             . Fred was not a normal Hamster, at



4
     night he would escape from his                           and go on




    adventures. One night he decided to go into town so he picked up his




                           and left. He was walking down the road when




A                      drove by and splashed him in the




with water. Fred was dripping wet so he decided to stop at a nearby




                   to have a hot drink and dry off before going back home.




                                                                           5
Task
Your task is to write your own story replacing some of the words with
words spelt using the notes at the correct pitch.

Your story needs to use at least eight words written using the notes with
their note names written underneath to make the word.

When writing music we only use the letters A, B, C, D, E, F and G.
Try to think of some words that you can use in your story that only use
these letters. (You can use the letters more than once in each word.)

Write as many words as you can think of here;
I have given you a character name to get started.
(You don’t have to fill all the spaces)

1. BECCA
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.

Now choose at least five of your words to write using music in your story.
Remember to also write a treble clef at the start of each line.

My First Melody
This section is vital for your assessment.

Now you are familiar with both writing notes at different
pitches and using different rhythms (homework assignment two)
try to combine these skills to write a melody/tune. Choose your
own time signature but remember to write it at the start of the
line after the treble clef. Your tune must be AT LEAST four bars
long. (there a six here for those fabulous people that want to
push themselves!)




                                                               9
Key Signature
A key signature is how many sharps (#) and flats (b) are
in a piece of music.
When you sharpen a note you go to the black note above.
When you flatten a note you go to the black note below.
Every black note therefore has two names, a sharp and a
flat.
These are all the note names.
         C# D#    F# G# A#        C# D#      F#   G# A#
         Db Eb    Gb Ab Bb        Db Eb      Gb   Ab Bb




     C    D E F     G A B       C D E       F G A B

If you notice the black notes take the name of the white
note above and below but with a sharp (#) if it is above
the white note and a flat (b) if it is below.
Try to answer these questions.
Start on C go up a semi-tone where do you finish …………
Start on F go down a semi-tone where are you now? ………
Start on A go down a tone where have you reached? ………
Start on C# go up two a tones where have you got to? ……
Start on Ab go down a tone where are you now? …………

     See the glossary for what a tone and semi-tone are!

Key Signatures continued.
If there is an accidental (sharp or flat) at the start of a
piece of music it means that whenever the note is played
in the music it is played as a sharp or flat.
For example this piece of music has an F# in the key
signature so all the F’s written in the music would be
played as an F#.
         On the F# line so all the F’s become F#




               F#        F#                     F#
Notice that the sharp sign (#) is in the same place as the
F note would go. This is how we identify what note it is
referring to.

Task
Write a sharp sign (#) in front of all the notes that would
be played as a sharp in this piece of music. The first one
is done for you.
