Piano Chart – Layout For Quick Reference
Piano Chart for easy reference! This should help you understand the layout of the keys on a piano / keyboard
Here is a handy chart which will help you get a bigger picture of how the notes are arranged on a piano. The image below will show you how the keys on a Piano keep on repeating as a pattern across the keyboard (this is an important concept to remember if you want to learn to play quickly).
Meanwhile, you can even get hold of a handy reference chart for beginning students that shows the note names and the note positions on the treble and bass clefs clearly, and easily fits behind the 88 keys of any piano.
This keyboard chart will also show you how the keys on the keyboard correspond to the notes on a music sheet.

Mind you, this will only help you learn the piano notes, it doesn’t talk about piano fingering so don’t expect a magical wand sort of thing that can be applied to every song that you play. Many piano books and scale books will have fingerings to help you use the correct fingers, but then it all depends on the sequence of notes to be played.
Besides, the piano keyboard chart above shows only the names of the notes, which correspond to the white keys. Black keys are depicted by accidentals in written music, which will be covered in the advanced topics.
Another thing worth mentioning is that these notes are mentioned in the standard notation format. Certain European and Asian countries have a different way of naming the notes on a keyboard, though the basic concept still remain the same.
Practice makes Perfect
Learning to play the notes of written music can be daunting initially, especially to a beginner. It is also because of the fact that students do not try to visualize the relationship between the written notes and the keys on the piano / keyboard.

The piano lessons and the style of teaching should be as uncomplicated as possible. The piano lessons should give you a feeling that things are easier to learn and you should feel that you are making some real progress.
The piano keyboard chart displayed here will help you to make that visualization between the notes and the keys. Hopefully you should find it easy to play the written piano notes with the help of this chart. You can even choose to get yourself a handy reference chart that will easily fit behind the 88 keys of your piano.
