To help us remember the treble lines we say, "Every Good Boy Does Fine". The names of the line notes in the treble are E,G,B,D,F. From one line to the next is a "skip". We start on the E above middle C (with a red circle) and we skip a letter name as the notes ascend, or go up.

Our signal for this reminder is the American Sign Language sign for "boy". Pretend you are wearing a cap with a bill on it. Touch the "bill" and move the hand down and away from the face. This sign for "boy" reminds us that "Every Good Boy Does Fine", E,G,B,D,F, the treble lines.
