    If you’ve been trying to master all the major scales with little or no success, this 4-week plan is for you.

    Learning all the major scales on the keyboard can be overwhelming. We are talking about 12 major scales (that’s a dozen major scales) and not the easiest thing in the world to learn.

    Some times you can even learn new major scales and slightly or completely forget the scales you’ve already learned. I’ve been there, so I know exactly how frustrating this can be and that’s why I’m here to help.

    But before we get into what we have to learn in this lesson, we’ll have to review the concept of the major scale.

    A Short Note On The Major Scale

    The major scale is a collection of all the notes in the major key. It starts and ends on the keynote, which is also the title of the major scale.

    If you want to form the C major scale, you have to start and end on C:

    …or if you want to form the F major scale, you have to start and end on F:

    That’s how it works.

    The easiest major scale to learn is the C major scale:

    …because it consists of all the white notes from C to C:

    C D E F G A B C

    So, if you’re in the key of C major, you’re going to mostly have the notes of the major scale to play around and as you go into other major keys, you’ll also need to know their major scales as well.

    “Here Are All The Major Scales…”

    C major scale:

    Db major scale:

    D major scale:

    Eb major scale:

    E major scale:

    F major scale:

    F# major scale:

    G major scale:

    Ab major scale:

    A major scale:

    Bb major scale:

    B major scale:

    Now beyond knowing what a major scale is and having all the examples listed above, it is important for you to master these major scales and be able to play them as quickly as possible.

    That’s why I came up with a 4-week plan that I’m going to share with you in the next segment.
