Learn the Order of the Musical Flats/Sharps with an Acrostic

Ever tried to teach the order of the flats and the sharps, but just didn’t quite know how to effectively help children learn this information. Here’s an acrostic to get the order learned quickly and easily.

The first letter of each word is the sharp or flat. In one direction the phrase represents the flats. In the reverse direction it represents the sharps.

Sharps – Father Charles Goes Down And Ends Battle

Flats – Battle Ends And Down Goes Charles Father
