Printable piano key guides

If you’re still learning the names of the notes on your piano, here’s a printable guide I made for you.  Many thanks to my good friend Sandie Barker who gave me the idea.  The note names are clear and you also have the treble clef and bass clef notes to help you:

Simply download the file here, print out onto paper or card and trim the two sections as shown. They will fit nicely behind the keys of most pianos and full-size keyboards.  Put them in the centre of your piano and make sure you line up the pattern of black keys correctly, as shown in the picture.

I think these are a much better alternative to putting stickers on the keys of your beloved instrument.  I would strongly recommend that you don’t put stickers on the keys of your piano or keyboard, even if the instructions say ‘easy to remove’ or ‘won’t leave marks’.  I have seen keys ruined by them!  These overlays can be removed and replaced whenever you need them.

One word of advice – use these key guides only for as long as you need them.  Get to know your notes and then remove them when you can!

    Thank you for this! I printed the sheet on 85% and it fits perfectly in my smaller size Yamaha keyboard.
