Here is a familiar note with a different look. The note is a B. The line just above the note B's "note head" is called a leger line. Actually, Middle C is written with a leger line through the middle of it, for both the Treble Clef Middle C and the Bass Clef Middle C. [You know that a musical staff has 5 Lines and 4 Spaces. Well, a Leger Line is a short line written above or below the staff, this is done for notes beyond the range of the staff.]

This B, shown above, would often times be played by the left hand, but instead it is to be played by the right hand. How is this possible you say? Generally, if a Leger Line note, around the area of Middle C, has a stem pointing upward, it is to be played with the right hand. If a leger line note, around the area of middle C, has a stem pointing downward, it is to be played with the left hand.
