I hope this is the right place to post this. I grew up playing the piano and there was one tool

that really helped me learn the keys. It was made out of heavy card stock and each key on the piano was assigned a piano key on the cardstock. You strung it out behind the keys and up against the back of the piano. Because I'm going to resume playing I've been looking to buy one but can't find it. Don't even know if they're still made, but it sure helped. Does anyone know of what I've described and know if it's still available and where? Thanks,

2. On Amazon, search for Practice Keyboard & Note Chart for Behind the Piano Keys

Ten bucks.
Wish I knew about this thing I might have been able to get somewhere on the piano

4. I remember what you're talking about, I think, but I haven't

seen one in decades. I've seen them sell stickers to put on the keys, but that's about it. Things are so different now. Now there are all sorts of videos and online piano classes to teach people how to play. I wonder if there are still people who teach piano lessons in person. Probably not many.

6. My mom was a classically trained pianist and vocalist so there was no avoiding learning

the piano. I remember having to interrupt my playing outside to practice piano for 30 minutes a day. I wish I would have kept the music books she used for her lessons. Thanks.

5. Yes! It looked slightly different, but the educational impact will be the same. Never came up

on my Google searches. Going to get one today. Thanks.
