Learn Note Names

Mortar Board

Learning the names of notes associated with positions on a music staff is tedious. However, it is necessary for becoming good at sight reading music. The goal is to be able to see a note position and associate it with a note name instantly, without thinking. To make it a bit more fun, we offer a free learning tool here.

For memorization purposes, it is much better to learn in small increments or ranges first. Five notes might be a good start. Later, you can change or extend the range as you become more confident. This learning tool allows you to do just that.

Here is how to use the learning tool.

  1. Choose the clef.
    Violin = Treble Clef
    Viola = Alto Clef
    Cello = Bass Clef

  2. Choose any note range. (C4 = middle C, red = open string)

    Violin, Treble Clef (range G3 -> B6)
    G3 A3 B3 C4 D4 E4 F4 G4 A4 B4 C5 D5 E5 F5 G5 A5 B5 C6 D6 E6 F6 G6 A6 B6 ...

    Viola, Alto Clef (range C3 -> E5)
    C3 D3 E3 F3 G3 A3 B3 C4 D4 E4 F4 G4 A4 B4 C5 D5 E5 F5 G5 A5 B5 C6 D6 E6 ...

    Cello, Bass Clef (range C2 -> E4)
