After cutting out the square, place it with the piano keys at the top of the front side of paper. Now fold the square in half vertically.
Open the sheet of paper.
Now, fold both sides in vertically to meet the center fold we just created.
Open the sheet again.
Fold the paper in half horizontally.
Fold in top corners to meet the outermost folds.
Open the corners back up.
This is the trickiest step. Fold the paper in toward the center fold from each side, reversing the bend of the outer folds.
Make a fold along the white part of the paper up to the piano keys.
Fold again inward, making a bend on the other side of the piano keys.
Now, fold the keyboard upward, making a firm crease.
Fold the outer edges vertically to the center fold. Make a firm crease!
Stand the piano upright. You can reinforce the keyboard folds by using double-sided tape!
Cut out your sheet music and place on piano!
