Major Piano Scale Chart

Would you like to learn all major piano scale patterns quickly? Here you can find all your major scales easily with a scale chart!

The picture charts below have fingering for all the 12 major scales, both the left and the right hand. No note reading is 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.

Major Piano Scale Chart with Fingering

There are 12 different major scales.

3 of those scales (Db/E#, F#/Gb and B/Cb) have two names (called enharmonic), so you could brag and say that you have learned 15 instead of 12!

Those that have two names look and are played exactly the same on the keyboard, but are written differently  with notes.

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

C, Db/C#, D, Eb, E, F, F#/Gb, G, Ab, A, Bb, B/Cb

Piano Quotes

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." ~Mark Twain
