Movable "Do" Piano Insert

This insert will help you play in any key, reminding you where the sharps and flats are.  My 3-year-old can transpose simple melodies into any key with it!  If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video is worth much more.

Here is the printable:

Here is a simple melody to get you started.

Please note: If you think this printable is worth sharing, please do!  But I ask that you share this page's URL (web address), and not the actual file.  Thank you for understanding.

**In the video I called it "well tempered", but I should have said "equal tempered".  Oops!  It's sort of a joke relating to old tuning systems on the piano.  Each half-step is spaced evenly.  So in this printable, instead of spacing the chromatics to match where the black keys are on the piano, this printable is designed to move around.  Hence the even spacing was more desirable.  They don't match up perfectly, but they are certainly close enough.**
