Some notes on the piano are in the treble clef, and some are in the bass clef. Generally, the treble clef notes are played with the right hand; and the bass clef notes are played with the left hand. Usually, the notes to the right of Middle C are played with the right hand - and are found in the treble clef. Usually, the notes to the left of Middle C are played with the left hand - and are found in the bass clef. Middle C may be played be either the left or right hands.
Please look below at the drawing and find the treble and bass clef signs. Do not be too concerned with the rest of the information in this drawing at this time. You will see this drawing at a later point in time.
In looking at the drawing, you will see that there is a treble clef sign, and a bass clef sign. Also you will see that there are 5 line notes in both the treble and bass clef; and that there are 4 space notes in the treble and bass clef.
A line note has a line in the middle of its note. Likewise a space note has a space running through the middle of its note. In other words, there isn't a line running though it.
There are simple "sayings" which can help you learn the names of each note. So far you know where the notes are on the keyboard. Now you will learn by seeing the notes on a page [Sheet Music], where the notes are to be played. We will be covering all the notes listed above. You will be an expert in no time at all!
