Like all musical notations, this G-clef is a visual instruction, or record, of a musical sound. Different clefs are used to designate the pitch of a piece, and there are three clefs in use today: the treble, the bass, and the C. They are represented by stylizations of the letters G, F, and C. The treble or G-clef fixes the position of G above middle C.
- Finish: solid brass, electro-plated with gold finish

Most Western music is based on a system of notation that evolved around 1600 out of earlier practices. The starting point for any opera is the full score, which contains all individual voices and instruments arranged in a specific order on the page. The written music—representing the sounds a composer creates in his head—then comes to life performed by singers onstage and played by the orchestra.
