Harmonic Minor Scales

The harmonic minor scale has a specific pattern of whole (W), half (H) and 1 + 1/2 (W+) steps:

(starting note)-W-H-W-W-H- W+ -H

You can transpose this harmonic minor pattern to each of the 12 keys on the piano. Or use the piano charts below!

Minor Piano Scale Charts with Fingering

The picture charts below show all the 12 harmonic scales in minor, easy to see and play with the correct fingering.

The best way to learn each scale is to repeat the same pattern again and again, in as many octaves as you like, up and down.

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

For example; the left hand starts on a finger (5), 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 (5) again.

The parenthesis is also used when you can use an alternative finger.

The scales that have two names look exactly the same on the keyboard, but differently written with notes. (So you could brag and say that you have learned 14!) They are called enharmonic ("same sounded").
