You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below

Step 1

Start by drawing the first musical symbol, which is the cluster note. A cluster note is essentially two consecutive vibrating notes combined in one symbol.

Start by drawing parallel diagonal lines on the left side of your paper. Then draw a vertical line on both ends of the parallel diagonal. Remember that all lines must be of similar length.

Step 2 – Draw the first symbol of the beam note

Draw a side oval on the left side of the left vertical line that we drew in the previous step. This forms the quaver symbol to the left of the cluster note.

The oval should be attached directly at the end of the left vertical line to form a vibrating note, as shown in the illustration.

Step 3 – Now, complete the form of the cluster note

Repeat the previous step on the right vertical line. Similar to the previous step, the sideways oval should also be drawn on the left side of the vertical line.

After completing this step, you should now have two quaver notes connected, thus completing the form of the first musical symbol in your drawing — the cluster note.

Step 4 – Then Draw the Flag of Quaver Notes

Moving on to the second symbol, which is the vibrato, continue by drawing a vertical line below the cluster note. This line serves as the root of the vibrato.

Then draw a diagonal rectangle in the upper right that connects directly to the trunk. This forms the flag of the dynamic note.

Step 5 – Next, Draw the Head of the Quaver Note

To complete the quaver note, simply draw a slanted oval on the bottom left of the trunk that we drew in the previous step.

At this point, the form of the quaver note will be complete. And there you have it — you’ve successfully drawn your second musical icon. We’re almost done, so keep it up!

Step 6 – Draw the line of the sound key

Now, we’ll work on the third and final musical symbol in our drawing, which is the triple clef.

Draw a vertical line with a spiral endpoint. This creates the root of the treble clef. Remember, the lines that form the treble clef should be relatively thicker than the lines that form other musical notations.

Step 7 – Draw a small curved line on the right side

Continue by drawing a curved line at the top of the treble clef.

Remember that the top of the triple key should be pointed, as shown in the illustration above.

Step 8 – Next, Draw Clef .’s S-shaped Line

Extend the lines of the curve by drawing a relatively larger curve on the opposite side of the bottom part of the stem.

Note: the curve at the top of the stem should point towards the left while the curve at the bottom should point towards the right.

When drawn correctly, the entire curve almost forms an “S”.

Step 9 – Completing the Treble Clef . Pattern

Draw a spiral starting from the bottom end of the S-shaped curve that we drew in the previous step.

The spiral should coincide with the body of the treble clef. At this point, the treble clef is now fully structured.

Now that we have successfully drawn three music icons, it’s time for you to wait for the most part. In this step we will now add color on the music icons!

As you can see in the illustration, we kept the color of the music icons pretty simple. We used yellow for the cluster note and green for the quaver note.

The treble clef, on the other hand, doesn’t have any color because the lines are bold and pitch-black.

The cool thing about this step is that you can choose a unique set of colors and color the music icons however you like! You can even make them multicolored if you want — it’s up to you!

Have fun with colors and make musical notes vibrant and colorful!
