Clef

A symbol normally placed at the beinning of every line of written music, to indicate the exact location of a particular note on the staff. This lends relational values to pitches and note ranges so that music can be notated and read effectively. Generally speaking, the Treble and Bass clef are more prominant and widely used than other clefs including the Soprano, Alto and Tenor clefs. The Treble and Bass clef are used to notate music for the piano and for most choral arrangements. The Treble clef places the note G above middle C on the second line and is therefore also referred to as the “G” clef. The Bass clef fixes the note F below middle C on the middle line of a staff and is therefore also referred to as the “F” clef.
