About the (*) marking

On the keys, there are two different types of numbers.

The regular numbers, like “1 2 3 4 5”, are for the right hand.

The numbers with the circles, like “1 2 3 4 5”, are for the left hand.

If the (*) is before a number like *1 or *1, it means that it is in the 1st octave of the scale.

If the (*) is after a number like 1* or 1*, it means that it is in the last octave of the scale.

The numbers with underline, it means that is the 2nd and the 3rd octave of the scale.

The dotted lines indicate that you can attach two key scales together to make one longer scale.

Because of the limitations of the paper setup, there are only three octaves on each key.

This paper scale keyboard can help piano beginners start lessons and helps make practice easier.

However, it is NOT RECOMMENDED for long term use.
