## How To Draw a Treble Clef – Easy 3 Step Method

Step 1
Start with your pen/pencil on the second line up of the staff (this line is going to become a “G” once the treble clef is written – this is why the treble clef is also known as the G clef).
From this position, draw in a circular motion to the right, touching the middle line of the staff then continuing to touch the bottom line of the staff before returning to the 2nd line up as shown in this diagram:

Step 2
Now we are going to continue by drawing a diagonal line (bottom left to top right) up beyond the top line of the staff as shown in the diagram below:

Step 3
The final step in drawing a treble clef involves drawing a straight line down intersecting the semicircle we drew in step 1 right through to beyond the bottom line of the staff. We then finish this line off with a little curl to the left.
