Wouldn't you like to learn all major piano scale patterns easily ? Here you can learn all your major scales quickly and easily with scale charts!
The piano scale charts below have fingering for all the 12 major scales, both the left and the right hand. But- there's no note reading required!
So, it's a handy-dandy tool that's great for visual learners, and also to make memorizing the scales easier.
The picture charts below display all the 12 major scales, easy to understand and marked 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. (b=flat/ #=sharp).
3 of the scales (Db/E#, F#/Gb and B/Cb) actually have two names (so you could brag and say that you have learned 15 instead of 12)!
The scales that have two names, look and are played exactly the same on the keyboard, but are written differently with notes.
They are called Enharmonic (same sounded).
