Step 1: Labeling Stickers

Choose what ever color of stickers you want. I chose to use all the same color but the middle key but it doesn't matter. Label all of them with one of the letters from the musical alphabet. If you do not know the musical alphabet it is A-G A,B,C,D,E,F, AND G. (YOU CAN CHOOSE TO EITHER LABEL THEM FIRST OR PUT THEM ON THE KEYS FIRST) Also make sure to count how many WHITE keys you have thats what your labeling.

Step 2: Placing Them on Keyboard

First white key on the very far left is always C. Label that one C then the second one is D. The pattern keeps going After D is E then F then G the it goes to A NOT H. Then to B and repeats back at C.

Step 3: Taking Them Off

Taking them off is easy all you do is peel them off. If having trouble get a WARM damp washrag and it should be easier to take off.

    The first white key on the very far left is NOT always a C. Your keyboard only has 4 octaves or 49 keys so does start on a C. A full size 88 key keyboard or piano starts on an A
