Acrostic
Make up a sentence in which the first letter of each word is part of or represents the initial of what you want to remember.
The sentence “Nothing is good and nothing is bad” to memorize the lines of the treble clef, representing the notes N, I, G, A, N, I and B.
Acronym
An acronym is a word that is made up by taking the first letters of all the key words or ideas you need to remember and creating a new word out of them.
The word “HOMES” to remember the names of the Great Lakes: Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie, and Superior.
Rhymes and Alliteration
