Free 1-Octave Major Scales in 12 Keys for Piano
These are 12 Major scales in one full octave. The full octave scale has 8 notes going up and going down. Please remember that these scales are written down with key signature (# or b at the beginning of each line). However, we kindly added cautionary # (sharps) and b (flats) in parenthesis. For those of you who are complete beginner please note that # & b signs are on the left side of a note, not on the right side. Try to practice from the easier ones first and also hand separately. We suggest starting with keys such as C, G, D, A, & E first. These keys have the same fingering order. Eventually, it's best to memorize one by one. Actually F sharp major and D flat major is easy even though you may not believe that because there are 5 black keys. However, these 2 keys use finger 2 & 3 on 2 black keys and finger 2, 3, & 4 on 3 black keys with both hands the same way. And these keys use finger 1 on the-only white keys. It's definitely an easy visual pattern that you can comprehend and memorize. So, we recommend starting with the key of C, G, D, A, & E first. After that, move on to F sharp and D flat. Then, the rest are all unique keys. So, take your time to learn them.
It's boring to listen to the recording. But it's on this page for free just in case you need it.
