H-hello everyone! today we are going to talk about the staves!
when reading music, there are two main clefs that we use: the bass and treble clefs! each staff is made up of 5 lines and 4 spaces, each with a corresponding note name! (although we'll talk about those later~)
The treble clef is the top clef, played by the right hand on piano, as well as many instruments such as trumpets, clarinets, flutes, violins, and saxophones.
And on the other hand, there is the bass clef! this clef is played by the left hand on piano, and is also used by many lower brass instruments like the trombone and tuba, as well as some sting instruments like the double bass and cello.
I-I hope I was able to shine some light on the topic, and if you'd like, give drawing your own clefs a try! I-I'd love to see everyone's work!
OOC: and that wraps up this weeks edition of symphonic Sundays! as Mae mentioned, I thought I'd try having a little fun with this week, so I'm making it into a draw! anyone who posts a picture of them or their character drawing/trying to draw the treble or bass clefs will get entered into a draw for any commission off of my page
if you draw both (in two pictures), you get two entries!
and on a sadder note, I'm also using this post to say that I'm going to be on hiatus until the 27th of may
I may be able to get on intermittently, however I will be unable to do any posting for the next while. DX
see you all when symphonic Sundays pick up again!
