Hello Monique.
 
The bass clef is the written musical staff also called the F clef to write or display the musical notes and rests for musical instruments/voices from middle C on the piano to the lowest notes on the piano. For pianists it would typically be for the left hand, for voice it would be for bass/baritone. If you want online theory lessons let me know. I am a new tutor on here. Best wishes in your studies.

Hey Monique -- the "pierced-ear" symbol is a scribed "F" where the "colon"
straddles the F line ... if the music staff had simply put middle C AND A in the space
between the clefs, then both treble and bass clefs would look the same!  Regards :)
