One Octave Keyboard Labels

One Octave Keyboard Labels

[This was originally posted Oct. 2009. The file is updated with new keyboards that are slightly larger and are different colors. I suggest you use Avery™ #55160 “repositional” address labels if you plan on using these in an assignment book. That is what I use, because I find I can remove them easily and put them on a new page, which saves time and money!]

The other day I was drawing a tiny keyboard on my younger student’s assignment book and I had her draw dots on the correct keys. As we worked together looking for whole and half steps,  I casually said that my drawing was kind of sloppy, and it would be a lot easier to read and more fun if I had some keyboard stickers. So I sat down at my computer and designed some!  Actually they were easy to make because I’ve been designing my own labels for years. However, I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything quite like this, so for your whole and half step pleasure, I’m offering  Keyboard Labels.  Please let me know what you think!

    I print these on the removable labels – – – – – Can use in beginner books to help young students find their positions, etc. Tons of uses. Thanks Susan!


    I think you are absolutely remarkable! This is brilliant and I’ll be using it today! Thank you so much for all your ideas.

    Hi Susan,
    I’ve used these before. They’re fun! Any chance you could make them to fit a label #8160. These also have 30 labels on a page but the keyboard is not quite centered on each label. The ones at the top and bottom of the page are quite close to the edge of the label and nearly running off.

      Deb, according to Avery, these lables are the same size as #8160. I put one template on top of the other and they are exactly the same size, so it really won’t help you if I make another template. Be sure to check your settings. Were you sure you used ACTUAL SIZE as the setting in the dialog box that opened?

        Thanks, Susan. I thought they were comparable to each other. I will check my settings to see if it shows actual size. I didn’t pay any attention to that detail. I hope that solves the problem. Thanks!
