Major Piano Scale Chart

Her you can find all your major scales quickly with a scale chart! The picture chart has fingering for all the 12 major scales, for both the left and the right hand. No note reading needed! It's a handy-dandy tool that's great for visual learners.

Major Scales

The picture chart below show all the 12 major scales, easy to understand and play with the correct fingering. If you play the same pattern again and again, you can play as many octaves as you like, up and down.

The finger numbers that are within a parenthesis (5), are used only when you begin, end or turn the scale.

For example in F major the left hand starts on a finger (4), but as you play the scale ascending several octaves you will use finger 1 on that note.

When you finish the scale you will use finger (4) again. It is also used when you can use an alternative finger.

There are 12 different major scales. 3 of those have two names, so you could brag and say that you have learned 15! Those that have two names look exactly the same on the keyboard, but differently with notes.
