Lesson 2.1 - Ledger Lines

In Grade 2, the notes will go higher and lower than in Grade 1.
This is done by the use of ledger lines, small extra lines that are written above or below the stave.




When writing ledger lines it is important to note the following;

The lines should be straight, not sloping up or down as shown by these"bad" examples





The lines should be the same distance apart as the stave lines. Below, the first example is too far away, the second , too close.




Each new note needs its own ledger line. Don't join strings of ledger lines together - it will just look like a stave of 6 lines (as below) and that would be confusing.


To work out the names of notes on ledger lines, simply count on or back from the last note just above or just below the stave. Here are some examples of the notes you might come across on ledger lines in Grade 2.
