Getting Started With Major Scales

About Getting Started With Major Scales

Interested in learning scales but not sure where to start? This class covering major scales offers a great foundation for any aspiring musician! Learn what makes a scale major, the different major scales you'll encounter, and how to keep track of key signatures. Pianists will have the chance to learn fingerings for different major scales.

Students may find the visualization of the piano keyboard helpful in the learning process (any playable piano app is great), though it's not a requirement.

Class Goals

- learn what makes a scale major
- learn the difference between major scales with sharps or those with flats
- learn about key signatures
- learn the best fingerings to help you play major scales more easily
