Piano Braille Design

Drawing in braille: Piano Keyboard C Major Scale that can be adapted to create quarter, half, and whole notes too.

If you and/or your student is already familiar with the musical staff, try this drawing in braille of a piano with the C Major Scale! You can challenge yourself or your student to create this piano using the quarter notes, half notes, and whole notes!
*Make sure you insert your paper into the Brailler horizontally!
