Piano Key Notes and Chord Finder

This printable Piano Key Notes and Chord Finder is a handy little tool for beginning pianists! Just print, fold and place behind the keys, matching it where indicated with "middle-C".



You can easily see the layout of the keyboard and the key names on one side. Stick the paper behind the keys on the piano, find middle-c and line it up. Now you have all the names of the notes and keys right in front of you!

On the other side you can see how you can play four basic chords, or triads, in root position. The markings are matched to regular sized keys to help you find the major chord, minor chord, diminished chord and augmented chord.

Simply match the first line with the middle of any key you want your chord from, and two more notes to complete the chord will line up. Presto! An instant chord finder.

You can also print on thicker paper, cut in half and use the two sides separately.

Remember how to find "middle C"? Pull your hands from both ends of the piano keyboard towards the middle. When they meet, there are two black keys- to the left of those is middle C! Easy!

Use the tool above as you start learning the notes and how to read sheet music, and you will learn all the note names easier.

Of course, using this key notes finder a couple of times mean that you will hardly need it anymore since you will learn these basic chord patterns by heart very quickly, but that’s OK I guess!

I hope you'll find this little key notes finder as useful as I have.
