Quick question about reading sheet music

85 Gnome Priest
Not sure if this is the best place to ask but I am currently learning to read sheet music and plan on learning the piano and I am wondering what the numbers above the treble clef mean/stand for. Linked and circled what I meant.


Any help would be appreciated.

It just tells you which measure you're on. Most music, including the one you linked, has four beats or quarter notes to a measure. It's just a quick way to find your place, much like page numbers in a book.

Basically just saying what Measure you are on.
