KEYNOTES Stickers - Piano and Keyboard Learning Aid Helps you learn to play the keyboard and read music - faster! Scroll down for a helpful FAQ section..... Keynotes stick to the upper part of the key - you see the notes as you play, not your fingers! 36 labels - for 61-key C-C keyboards (labels are only needed on the white keys). Also OK for 49 and 54 keys. Includes links to free or free-to-try online lessons and learning aids. Does not include a keyboard! Full colour step-by-step instructions, application diagram and tool included - free email help. Transparent thin polyester, for a smart, long-lasting finish on any keyboard. Can be removed easily and will not damage the keys. The original piano stickers, made in the UK. 1000's have been sold to students, teachers and colleges, worldwide - they work! KEYNOTES are simple, high-quality labels that stick to the upper part of the white keys, so your hands don't cover them when you are playing. They were developed by musicians and teachers to be easily understood and effective. They help you match the notes on the page to the keys under your fingers, as you play. The FAQ section below should answer your questions - if it doesn't, send us a message! Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) Q. There are many different keyboard labels and stickers on the market - what's so different about these? A. LOTS! You can see them when you are playing. Many piano tutor books come with stickers of some kind, but they are all designed to stick on the wide lower part of the white keys. As soon as you put your hands in the correct position to play, you can't see them anymore! Keynotes are applied to the top part of the white key so you can see what you're playing, while you're playing. With practice you will develop a "feel" for the pattern of the keys and will know where your hands are without looking, but in the early stages you will need a visual reference and reassurance that your fingers are where they need to be - Keynotes provide this. Labels that are covered by your hands aren't really much use - if you can only see them when you're not playing, you may as well look at a chart in a book. They show the notes on the "grand staff" used to write piano music. The grand-staff is actually two staffs joined together by the note middle C - the lower stave for the left hand, the upper for the right. This means the layout in the important central area of the keyboard is the same on the Keynote label as it is on the page of music - what you see matches what you hear. Other labels use a single stave with no clef signs (or in some cases a clef sign in front of every note, which really clutters things up...). This means that the notes rise up the staff as you play the keyboard from left to right, as you would expect ......... but when you get to "middle C" they drop back down to the bottom and start climbing again, even though the pitch of the notes goes on getting higher! This is really confusing to a beginner. They are musically correct - and you don't just get stickers. Keynotes are musically correct and relevant to the beginner's needs - unlike many of the copies around at the moment, which have seemingly been produced by someone with little musical knowledge and are cluttered with unnecessary and often incorrect markings and numbers in an effort to be "different".... and they don't come with Keynotes' useful weblinks to free lessons and email backup. With keynotes, any notation that doesn't help the beginner is omitted - the aim of Keynotes is to keep things as simple as possible and help you progress rapidly to the stage where you understand the layout of the keys and can remove the labels. You should not think of keyboard stickers as a permanent decoration, but more like the training wheels on a child's bike; they're a useful help to get you started, but something to be removed as soon as you don't need them. If pianos were meant to have things permanently written on the keys then Steinway would be painting them on at the factory.... ;-) Q. Will they fit my keyboard? A. Keynotes are 9mm wide (slightly less than 3/8"). To check if they will fit your keyboard, identify the "F" and "B" keys (the two white keys either side of a group of THREE black keys) and measure the thin part at the top of either one - if the width is 9mm or more then Keynotes will work with your keyboard. On most full size keyboards this distance is about 11mm. Only the smallest of mini-keyboards will be too small. Q. My keyboard only has 49 or 54 keys, can I still use these? A. Yes. The lowest note on 49, 54 and 61 key keyboards is the same, so the fitting process is the same - just put label no.1 on the left-most white key and fit the rest in sequence from left to right. On 49 or 54 key keyboards you'll just have a few left over. Q. How long will they last? A. Keynotes are printed on a special hard-wearing translucent polyester material with a non-glare matt finish- it looks almost as if the keys themselves are printed, giving a neat appearance. This makes them ideal for teachers - they look professional and are long-lasting. Q. Do I actually need to label ALL the white keys? A. Not necessarily - there are a few different approaches to this. Many teachers just fit the "grand-staff" labels (label numbers 4-26); some just fit just the "C" labels; others fit a few notes either side of middle-C and add more as the student progresses. Bear in mind that the labels are intended as an initial help, NOT a permanent one! Once you are familiar with the keyboard layout you should remove them to avoid becoming dependent on them. Q. The middle line in the bass staff is a "D" note, but the middle line of the treble staff is a "B" note - shouldn't they be the same? A. No, they shouldn't. When you start to learn this looks wrong, but is in fact correct. Relating notes on lines and spaces to keys on the keyboard can be confusing when you're starting. Keynotes help you by showing you a note's position on the grand staff used for keyboard music, not just on a single bass or treble staff, as most labels do. Q. What about the black keys - don't I need labels for those too? A. Definitely not! The black keys are named by referring to the white keys either side of them; so for example, the black key between C and D can be either "C sharp" or "D flat", dependent on the key of the music being played. This is shown on the Keynotes label by the appropriate sharp or flat symbol next to the black key - it's easier to see than describe - see main photo. The alternative, as some products do, is to have a sticker on each black key with TWO names on it - VERY confusing for a beginner...! Q. How long will it take to fit them? A. About 20 minutes. Just applying Keynotes is a great first lesson - by the time you are finished you will already be getting familiar with the note names and positions, and your keyboard will be a slightly less intimidating thing ... Included in the pack is a simple tool to help you place the labels neatly. If you are helping a child to learn, get them involved in applying them - children love stickers! Q. Will they damage the keyboard? A. No. Keynotes are made to peel off easily and leave no residue. Any mark that is left around the edge of the label is easily removed with whatever you would normally use to clean the keys. Q. What if I need help? A. Email us! We'll normally answer within 24 hours and will help as much as we can with using the labels. Q. Is a keyboard included? A. No! We have had to put this one in because someone did complain that they were expecting us to send a piano with their stickers... for £5.95 ..... to Israel... !! Q. What is the links page? A. It's a page on our website containing a list of links to resources we have found useful whilst helping children learn to play. It is reviewed and updated regularly, and everything is either free or free-to-try. There is a great deal of information available on the internet to help you learn to play and read music, but as with most things on the internet, the quality ranges from excellent to awful - some sites are very confusing and have incorrect information. The links page provides links to the best sites, with notes on how you will find them useful. They will be especially helpful if you are learning on your own and not taking one-to-one lessons with a teacher, but everyone should find something of interest - there are free lessons (many with very helpful animated graphics), ear-training applications, musical games, sheet music, and even an app that lets you print your own manuscript paper for a fraction of the cost of buying it! There are also sites in French and German to support the other versions of Keynotes. Copyright ©catmusic 2011.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)  

Q. There are many different keyboard labels and stickers on the market - what's so different about these?

A. LOTS!

You can see them when you are playing. Many piano tutor books come with stickers of some kind, but they are all designed to stick on the wide lower part of the white keys. As soon as you put your hands in the correct position to play, you can't see them anymore!  Keynotes are applied to the top part of the white key so you can see what you're playing, while you're playing. With practice you will develop a "feel" for the pattern of the keys and will know where your hands are without looking, but in the early stages  you will need a visual reference and reassurance that your fingers are where they need to be - Keynotes provide this. Labels that are covered by your hands aren't really much use - if you can only see them when you're not playing, you may as well look at a chart in a book.

They show the notes on the "grand staff" used to write piano music.
