Hi Jennifer! Here's your own Glossary of Terms, which includes only those terms we've discussed so far...

Bass Clef:Also known as the F Clef as the beginnig of this symbol, and its two dots, are based on the 4th line of the bass cleff staff, the F line.
Treble Clef:Also known as the G Clef as the beginning of its shape surrounds the 2nd line of the treble clef staff, the G line.
Key Signature:The area at the beginning of the staff which determines the overall key a piece of music is in. The number of sharps or flats shown relates to its Major or Natural Minor scale.
Staff:A set of 5 vertical lines and 4 spaces, where music notation is placed.
Major Scale:A series of 8 notes, all related by a whole step except between notes 3 and 4, and 7 and 8.
Whole Step:On the piano this is the distance between two keys that have only one key in between, regardless of color. Therefore, the distance from a C to a D is a whole step; and so is the distance from a B to a C#.
1/2 Step:On the piano this is the distance between two keys that are right next to each other, regardless of color. So that means the distance from a B to the C right next to it is a 1/2 step!
