Standard Notation Jig: This tool comes from page 8 of the Complete Piano Edition. Use it to see how the notes on a Grand Staff (normal piano music) are found all over the piano keyboard. The colors on this tool match up with the Piano Color Arrows below, which you can print off and tape to your piano.
Piano Color Arrows: I created this tool because I wasn't familiar with sheet music, and it was easy for me to forget where the different notes are found, especially for higher and lower octaves. I printed these off, cut them out, and I've had them taped them to my piano for a long time now. Since I don't play piano a lot, I still use them with sheet music, along with my Standard Notation Jig, to make sure I'm playing in the right octaves.
Free Chord Builder (in color): Click the image to the left to download this ten-page, interactive (hyperlinked) tool. It overlays colored circles over the Complete Piano Edition's Key of G Major/E minor page, so you can see how each of the six main chords in G Major are built all up and down the fretboard. Each of the six chords has it's own page, showing all the locations of the notes that make each chord. There's also page that shows, all at once, where the notes from the 3 main Major chords (the I, IV, and V chords) are found all over the fretboard. There's a page showing the three minor chords (ii, iii, and vi) simultaneously as well.
