How to Draw Musical Notes. Musical notes are different types of symbols denoting specific musical sounds. Notes represent both the pitch and duration of a tone in music notation.

You must learn how to draw musical notes if you love music.
Luckily, we’ve created a step-by-step guide to drawing musical notes, condensed into 9 quick and easy steps.
In this tutorial, we’ll learn how to draw three types of music symbols: a beam note, an eighth note, and a treble clef, respectively.
How to Draw Musical Notes
Begin by drawing the first musical symbol, the ray’s note. A union note is two eighth consecutive notes combined into a single symbol.
Start drawing diagonal parallel lines on the left side of the paper. Then draw a vertical line across both endpoints of the parallel diagonal line. Remember that all lines should be of similar length.
Draw an oval shape on the left side of the left vertical line we drew in the previous step. This forms the left quaver symbol of the union note.
The oval shape should be attached just below the left vertical line to form an eighth note, as shown in the illustration.
Repeat the previous step on the right vertical line. Similar to the previous step, the side oval shape should also be drawn on the left side of the vertical line.
After completing this step, you should have two connected eighth notes, completing the shape of the first musical symbol in your drawing – the bar note.
Continue with the second symbol, the eighth note, by drawing a vertical line below the root note. This line serves as the stem of the eighth note.
Next, draw a diagonal rectangular shape at the top right that connects directly to the trunk. This forms the flag of the eighth note.
To complete the eighth note, draw a sideways oval shape in the lower left part of the stem we drew in the previous step.
At this point, the eighth note shape should be complete. And that’s it – you have successfully finished drawing the second music symbol. We’re almost done, so keep going!
Now let’s work on the third and final musical symbol in our drawing, the treble clef.
Draw a vertical line with a spiral bottom endpoint. This creates the neck of the treble clef. Remember that the treble clef lines should be relatively thicker than those forming the other musical symbols.
Continue by drawing a curved line at the top of the clef shaft. Note that the top of the treble clef should be pointed, as shown in the image above.
Extend the lines of the curved line by drawing a relatively more significant curve on the opposite side of the bottom of the stem.
Note: The curve at the top of the stem should be pointing to the left, while the bottom should be pointing to the right.
With good drawing, the entire curved line should form almost the letter “S.”
Draw a spiral starting at the bottom of the S-shaped curve we drew in the previous step.
The spiral should overlap the stem of the treble clef. At this point, the treble clef should be fully textured.
Now that we’ve successfully drawn three music symbols, it’s time for the part you’ve probably been waiting for the most. In this step, we will now add colors to the music icons!
As you can see in the image, we kept the music icon colors reasonably simple. We used yellow for the ray note and green for the eighth note.
The treble clef, on the other hand, has no color because the lines were marked and pitch black.
The funny thing about this step is that you can manually choose a unique color set and color the music icons however you like! You can even make them multicolored if you want. It’s entirely up to you!
