I searched all over to find something like this a couple months ago. Eventually all I found was what looked like a photocopy of a photograph, which used lots of ink to print. So... tonight I finally designed my own full-sized keys.

Here they are:

Part 1

Part 2

File Name: Keys2.pdf

I made these with very light-gray lines, so they would not use much ink. On the Adobe Acrobat "print" screen, make sure to set the document to "actual size" and not "fit" to ensure that the keys will be the right size. The keyboards will overlap if you cut alongside the lowest F (Fa) in Part 2 and tape/glue it to the right of the highest E (Mi) in Part 1. Printing each set twice will give you a 63-key silent keyboard. You might take it to the printers and ask them to laminate it for durability. I like to print on card stock or cover stock and then laminate, or print on regular paper and then glue or tape to old file folders (I have a ton of used folders).

Since the shading of the black keys is light, it will be easy to write note names on them, or even color them with crayons, markers, etc.

You can print a set, laminate them, and cut them out to make a piano puzzle with older beginners, or give students the white keys to set on the real piano keys. Put stickers or write/draw key names on them and see how fast they can put the paper "keys" on the piano.

Students can color the lines green or brown and put those keys in the correct place to match their key guides, etc.

...and you can put the cat and mouse stickers on the keys and use it as a silent keyboard to learn the chromatic scale.

I am sure teachers, parents, and students will think of lots more creative ways to use these files. My apologies if something like this is already here... not intending to reinvent the wheel, but hope that someone finds this useful! :)
