Vitual Piano Keyboards


ttpictiny

Ever want to lead your students in singing, “Happy Birthday” or play the Jeopardy jingle while giving them time to come up with an answer? This tip features a couple of web tools that will transform your computer keyboard (or interactive whiteboard) into a piano keyboard!

I’m providing a couple of different websites with virtual keyboards. You can experiment and see which one works best for you.

  2. Play notes in one of three ways:

    c. Press the home-row keys on your computer keyboard.

  19. Thank you so much for the song “recipes.” I teach 3rd grade and I use them to teach my students the home row keys on the computer keyboard. Each student looks at the printed song recipe and they play the song together (hopefully using the right fingers on the right keys) as I direct them. It is a lot of fun!
