How to Doodle a Piano

Step 1

Doodling a piano is easy if you know how to draw a rectangle and line. 🙂 The piano doodle is generally made up of a combination of lines and rectangles stacked on top of one another. Pay particular attention to keeping the angles of your lines at 90 degrees and the distances between each line even, as shown in the example below.
