- Print up some blank staves. In 4/4 time, draw in several quarter, half, and/or eighth notes per measure. Vary the highness and lowness. Don’t forget to put the stems on the correct side of the note (don't remember? Review it). Use leger lines. Go through your example and identify lower and higher from note to note. Write in the counting.
- On a blank staff, draw in all the line and space notes from one leger line below the staff all the way up to one leger line above the staff. Use any type of note. Go further than that if you are bold and adventurous.
