Here you can quickly learn all the natural minor scales for piano in easy to read piano charts. As an added bonus, you'll learn the correct fingering for each hand as well!

Natural Minor Scales

The picture charts below show all the 12 natural scales in minor. They are easy to view and play with the correct fingering.

The scales are written in one octave, but 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; (1) and (5), are fingering used when you want to continue playing the scale for more octaves.

For example: the left hand starts on a finger (5), and as you play the scale ascending several octaves you will use finger 1 on that note instead. When you finish the scale after descending all the way, you will use finger (5) again. 

Every serious pianist should own a piano scale book with all the scales in major and minor, plus fingering for reference. I recommend "The Complete Book of Scales, Chords and Arpeggios" from Alfred's.

Minor Piano Scale Chart with Fingering

There are 12 natural minor scales, (starting from each key on the keyboard). 2 of those have two names (so you could brag and say that you have learned 14)!

Those that have two names look exactly the same on the keyboard, but are written differently with notes: D#/Eb  as well as A#/Bb share the same keys!

Scales in natural minor are also in a scale mode called "Aeolian".

You can scroll down for all the scales, or use these quick links to get to the exact scale you want:
