Have you ever wondered how musicians read and write music? Let's ask Dave how it's done! Dave Lambert explains what the swirls and squiggles on sheet music mean. He discusses how the musical staff tells musicians what to play and when and how modern music is written with the first seven letters of the alphabet. He teaches you the notes played on the treble clef and the bass clef and gives you simple ways to remember the notes on the lines and the spaces of both.
