Free Printable Flash Cards | Treble and Bass Clef

April 22, 2010

Flash cards are a great way to introduce young pianists to their note names. The following links will take you to two pages where you can instantly print a collection of nicely designed flash cards. Since our desktop printers don’t print double-sided, an answer key is provided at the end if you need help marking the backs of the cards with the answers.

    I used your website last evening to print flash cards for my adult nephew-in-law who is taking piano lessons.
    What a wonderful gift you have given with the creation of this web site.
    May you be blessed for this gift.

    Thank you so very much. I have looked all over for these cards and no book or music store in my area ..Naples Florida …had them in stock and didn’t know when they would get them.

    So I deeply appreciate your generous sharing of this help. I am an adult beginning piano player and am having great trouble retaining this information…..my brain
    is too old I guess.

    Thank you again…..”pearlybear”

      Hi Rona,
      Glad to help. As a piano teacher I see children struggle with learning note names and rhythms all the time. Just keep trying, and keep your goals limited. Decide to memorize 5 notes this week. If your doing well, continue to focus on them, and add five more next week. You’ll be great!

  3. These are wonderful flash cards. My granddaughter is learning to play the piano and these cards are just what she needs and were so easy to print, cut and laminate. Thank you, thank you, thank you so much!!!!

    Thanks for making these available. I printed the bass cards on my Mac but the treble clef cards were formatted differently and it says it only can be read by Windows XP/Vista/7. If you could reformat it I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks again for posting them. They are great!!!

      Hi Lori,

      Sorry to hear you were having problems printing. I have a Mac too. They were both created on a Mac, and I am able to get the Treble Clef Cards to work on my end. Perhaps you can restart your computer, or ask a friend to print them for you. I wish I could help more. – Andy

    You are so great and so kind share with us those wonderful flash cards! I felt so sad when my son scolded by his teacher because of he unable to read out the note.These flash card very helpful to me.

    Thanks a lot to you!

    Thanks for making these cards available, and without having to download some kind of reader to print them out. I really don’t trust something that makes you download stuff to your computer before you can even get to the what you are looking for. I am 56 years old and have just started taking piano lessons. Your cards will be a great help to me in the learning process.


  7. I have an adult female who has taken piano lessons for almost two years with a teacher but hasn’t learned the names of the notes. I thought I would try flash cards. To me, learning to play the piano without learning the notes is just like trying to learn how to spell without phonics.
    Thank you.

      Hi Elaine,
      This is a pretty common problem with piano students. The books students learn from tell them where to place their hands to play the piece, often helping them to ignore the actual note names. The books are good, but also enable this unfortunate behavior.

      There are many ways to drill note names. Flash cards are great. I also like note name worksheets and note name games. MakingMusicFun.net has many note name worksheets, MusicTheory.net has a wonderful “Note Identification” activity to drill your skills.
