The Very Basics of Note-Reading, Part 2: Bass Clef

A perfect foundation for learning to read notes on the musical staff

The treble and bass clefs are the two pillars around which music is built, so it is highly recommended that this course follow The Very Basics of Note Reading, Part I: Treble Clef. The two courses are very similar, but each one focuses on either one clef or the other. This is a chance to reinforce the general concepts learned in The Very Basics of Note Reading, Part I, and to start to become familiar and comfortable reading the bass clef.

Information covered in this course:

  • Focus on the bass clef
  • The musical staff
  • The musical alphabet
  • How notes move and how the movement sounds

My name is Catherine and I am a cello teacher who is passionate about guiding people in discovering knowledge and building confidence in their area of interest. I love the challenge and reward of helping to facilitate "lightbulb moments" in my students, as I celebrate and learn from the variety of strengths I encounter in each person. I have been teaching music for over a decade and the experience continues to teach me about what more I can bring to you, the student. One thing I know for sure is anyone can learn something they put their focus on. It takes a good deal of commitment and the willingness to let go and have fun, but I am happy to encourage you every step of the way!
