Line Note and Space Note Identification

The first step to learning how to read music notation (notational literacy) is recognizing if a note is on a line or a space of the staff. Line notes have a line going through the center of the note head, while space notes do not. Space notes have at least one line adjacent to the note head above it, below it, or two lines both above and below. Lines and spaces of a staff are numbered from bottom to top. This exercises drills identification of notes as line or space and the line or space number. To learn more about line and space notes, see the lesson video line and space notes.

This exercises requires the user to identify if a note is a line or space note as well as the line or space number.
