Notes on the stave and pictures with the names of notes

In home and school music lessons with children, a variety of preparations are needed. On this page, we have prepared for you such materials that you just need to have on hand if you are working with kids.

Notes on the stave

The first blank is a small poster depicting the main notes of the treble clef and bass clef (first and small octaves). Now in the figure you see a miniature – a reduced image of this poster, just below is a link to download it in its original size (A4 format).

Pictures with note names

The second blank is needed when the child first meets the notes, precisely to work out the name of each of the sounds. It consists of cards with the name of the notes themselves and with the image of the object in whose name the syllabic name of the note occurs.

Artistic associations here are selected the most traditional ones. For example, for the note DO, a drawing of a house is chosen, for PE – a turnip from a famous fairy tale, for MI – a teddy bear. Next to the note FA – a torch, with SALT – ordinary table salt in a bag. For sound LA, a picture of a frog was selected, for SI – lilac branches.

Musical alphabet

Musical alphabets are another kind of manuals that are used when working with beginners (mainly with children from 3 to 7-8 years old). In musical alphabets, in addition to pictures, words, poems, note names, there are also images of notes on the stave. We are pleased to offer you two options for such manuals, and you can read more about them and how you can make such alphabets with your own hands or even the hands of a child HERE.



Music cards

Such cards are actively used during the period when the child thoroughly studies the notes of the violin and especially the notes of the bass clef. They are already without pictures, their role is to help remember the location of the notes and quickly recognize them. In addition, they can be used for some creative tasks, solving puzzles, etc.


Dear friends! And now we offer you some musical humor. Surprisingly funny was the performance of Haydn’s Children’s Symphony by the Moscow Virtuosi Orchestra. Let’s admire together the respected musicians who took children’s musical and noise instruments in their hands.
