In this article, I will show you some simple ways (and more reasonable approaches) to recollect them. I will not stall you with convoluted music hypothesis, simply basic and powerful strategies.

Furthermore, we don’t recommend shading them like a rainbow as you find in the picture above (however… each to their very own!)

Coincidentally, this post isn’t tied in with figuring out how sheet music can be read. That is a totally unique pot of fish but it is necessary for you to do so, so check out our article on HOW TO READ SHEET MUSIC!

Note Recognition (Mnemonics)

The first strategy is only directly recollecting and remembering the notes by utilizing mental helpers. A mnemonic as the name implies, is a guide to assist you with recollecting what in any case would be an arbitrary bundle of letters.

Most educators will acquaint you with memory aides for assisting with recalling the piano notes.

A few general guidelines before we start. (Mnecs) Mental helpers are continually rising (going base to top), and they in every case either apply to either lines or spaces (it is not a combination of the two).

Mnemonics for the Treble clef

These are notes generally played by your right hand.

E -Every, G-Good, B-Boy D-Deserves F-Food: these address the lines on the G clef staff, from base to top: E, G, B, D and F.

FACE: these address the spaces between the lines in the clef of Treble from bottom to top: F, A, C, E.

Bass Clef Mnemonics

These are the notes the left-hand plays on the piano keyboard.

G-Good, B-Boy, D-Deserves, F-Food, A-Always: these address the lines on the bass clef staff, from base to top: G, B, D, F, A.

All Cows Eat Grass: these address the spaces between the lines on the bass clef, from plunging to climbing: A, C, E, G.

Notes of Landmark

Learning mental aides (mnemonics) is a certain something, however, I really do not like recollecting irregular expressions to work out where things are.

Landmark notes may not be a decent option.

With this methodology, rather than attempting to recall each note, you simply recollect a specific few.

You learn 4 notes on the G clef and 4 notes on the bass clef.

Whenever you’ve retained them in your memory, you would then be able to peruse nearby notes utilizing the span strategy.

Learning Aids

Old school, yet powerful.
Removable piano note key stickers assist you with perceiving the notes on the piano console. You can get sticker sets for various number consoles, a lot for 88 key mixes. The best ones show the notes when written in printed music (on the G or F staff) just as the letter name of the piano featured discussion.

For young lads, you can get ones with little delineations to keep them keen on figuring out how to play the piano.

N/B: Be certain to get these stickers out whenever you have retained the notes in your memory.

Ear Training

Obviously, figuring out how to perceive notes by ear – from exactly how they sound – is a definitive objective. So you can perceive a b level from a C simply by hearing it.

It sounds troublesome, yet it’s not difficult to learn notes by ear. Fortunately these days there’s a plenitude of online instruments and applications to assist you with learning.

Some striking ones are:


With the techniques we have talked about so far, you ought to have the option to remember piano notes after a timeframe.
