How to Draw a Bass Clef Accurately

The bass clef is much easier to draw than the treble clef. It consists of one curved line and two small dots.

Example of a bass clef

The bass clef is also called the F clef. The two small dots are on either side of the line that represents the pitch F on the bass clef. To learn all of the pitches of the bass clef, visit www.FundamentalsOfMusic.com.

To learn how to draw the bass clef, print this PDF sheet and trace the lines of the clef with a pencil. The page also has several blank staves on which you can practice. Notice where the lines of the clef start and end. When drawing a clef with pencil, you do not need to draw the lines as thick as they are in printed music.
