Sticky notes are great for helping us remember things, like where not to play on keyboard bars! This is one of my favorite low-tech tricks when working with students. Each time the mallet strikes the paper, it makes a crackle or a ticking sound that will immediately draw their attention to their playing area and the resonance of the bars, not to mention the visual disruption.
