2.7 Review 1
Once you feel you are familiar with the position of the notes on the treble and bass staves, try the following activities.
If you find these activities difficult, do not be disheartened. Remember that in order to be able to read the names of notes at a glance requires practice over a period of time. Some people find reading symbolic languages easier than others, but everyone has to spend some time in order to become familiar with note names. Of course, if you play an instrument and read notation on a daily basis, then that is a great help when learning note names. However, don’t forget the usefulness of mnemonics and trainers (Section 10). In addition, regular application, a little at a time, is the best approach.
Group 1 tests your knowledge of writing notes, Groups 2–4 test your reading of note names on the treble and bass staves and Groups 5 and 6 test your reading of notes with up to three ledger lines.
