Staff Paper PDFs
Free Music Staff Paper

Staff paper PDFs, free!  

I've finally discovered how to make a HORIZONTAL page with my Finale software, so I am replacing the former single staff page, and adding in a new GRAND STAFF page, also with a horizontal orientation.

On this page: small & GIANT-sized staffs -  grand staff, treble clef, bass clef, and viola clef printable staff paper for your music studio or lessons, FREE!

Staff paper is a necessity for a music teacher.  Having your music students write their own notes onto music paper is perhaps the BEST way to help them truly understand, "What does the staff mean?"

Let's start with blank staff paper:

Single staffs are all you need for most instruments.

Here's the new GIGANTIC horizontal staff:

Those were medium-sized staves.  Now for BIG blank staffs.  I like using the following paper for identifying guide notes, and then writing short songs or phrases using just 5 notes.

Here's the same thing but smaller, with four grand staffs - enough for a short song!

Putting bar lines in helps piano students learn to do staff notation in a uniform manner.  Still, there are no clef symbol markings or piano braces, so this paper can be used for 2 treble instruments in a duet, 2 bass instruments, or any other combination:

The staff paper PDFs below have clef symbols and a piano brace in each grand music staff:

Now for single-staff instruments, here are some BIG staffs for younger students to practice their music notation on:

These large-staved staff paper pdfs make it easy for young students to practice their staff notation writing, using large note-heads.  Drawing sharps and flats and natural signs are easier, too.

Here are smaller staffs, to which your music students will quickly graduate!

And last, three giant staffs, NOT FOR WRITING ON, but for laminating and using with your new note-readers.  Try moving coins up and down the music staff:

The bass clef:

And the viola clef, which shows where Middle C is!  This is a clef symbol that can be moved up or down the staff, depending on the range of the music.  Go get a blank staff, if you need that clef in a different spot!

Bigger stave without clefs Not rated yet
This is wonderful! For little learners, I need the 5 lines even more spaced out - the lines are too close together even on your big stave. Also I often …
