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

Learn Where the Piano Key Notes Are

One of the first things to learn as a beginner is note names and where to find them on the piano keyboard. Here is a printable tool to help you with exactly that!

So what can you do with this tool?

The piano key notes and chord finder chart (below) can be used in two ways:

1. You can easily see the layout of the keyboard and the treble piano 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 note names and keys for the right hand right in front of you! Great for when you are just starting to learn piano.

2. On the other side, you can see how you can play four basic chords, also called triads, in root position.

Tip: As you start to learn the piano, another clever tool is to put Keyboard Stickers on the keys with the note names on. These can be easily removed later!

The markings are matched to regular-sized keys to help you find major, minor, diminished, and augmented chords.

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 it in half and use the two sides separately.

A Clever Trick to Find "Middle C":

If you have trouble finding "middle c,":

  • Stretch out your arms and pull your hands from both ends of the piano keyboard towards the middle.
  • When they meet, there are two black keys. In between those is the note D, and the white key to the left of those is middle C! Easy!

Use the note and chord finder tool (above) as you start learning the notes on the treble clef and how to read sheet music, and you will learn all the note names much more effortlessly.

Of course, since you will learn these basic chord patterns by heart very quickly, you might find that after using this key notes finder a couple of times, you will hardly need it anymore..

But that's OK, I guess!

I hope you'll find this little piano key note finder as helpful as I have. 😉
