If our students can't name notes correctly then they will struggle with every other part of music theory
If they do not know and understand that....
then they will struggle with every element of music theory that they encounter
The music teacher's resources on this site feature a range of (free) lesson plans and worksheets designed to (among other things) encourage students to become aware of the conventions surrounding the correct identification and naming of notes
When they can name notes confidently they are ready to go on to study whole and half step intervals and from there the construction of scales and then chords.
To read more about this you can download our free lesson plans document.
Below you can see one of our music teacher's resources which is a simple handout designed to help our students to understand the concepts and principles that underpin the correct naming of musical notes
This handout is one of a series that can also be useful if printed out and stuck up on the wall of the music classroom as a ready source of reference for the student groupBelow you can see another of our music worksheets designed to help students to be able to identify musical notes and to realise that some (the notes to be found on the white keys) have a single name while others (those to be found on the black keys) can be given one of two letter names depending upon circumstance.
This page of our music teacher resources is under construction but to help you to get a feel for what we do here is a free note naming worksheet….
