If a student is only able to play 2-3 "easy to read" scales and gets confused by flats and sharps in more advanced keys, he or she is not getting the full benefit of this aspect of practice.

Because every note on the piano has its own major and minor scale, it is only when the student is able to play scales on every key that they get the best results.

I designed these charts to teach you how to play all of the major scales and all of the harmonic minor scales instantly without reading music.

My Cheat Sheets give you the traditional fingering which you would find in most any method book or Hanon.

It's a great way to simplify your piano practice!

For those who are not familiar with what the numbers refer to, one is your thumb, two is your index finger, three your middle finger, four your ring finger and five your pinky finger.

You may purchase this book on Amazon (click here) or buy the .pdf copy here at a lower price and print it yourself.

Scale playing benefits you in many ways especially when playing music such as the famous Nocturne in C# Minor by Chopin, (played by Wladyslaw Szpilman in the video below for the movie about his life called "The Pianist").



Learning to play just two of the scales that you get with these charts- one a major (E) the other a minor (F#) will help tremendously when playing this Chopin Nocturne and many other great pieces of music.

Awesome Training Aid!

Using these cheat sheets helped me jump right in to playing without having to know the notes first. Learning the notes came easy after practicing the scales with these sheets. Great way to get started on playing the piano. I highly recommend!

Thank you so much for making these sheets available! I am having a difficult time figuring out the key signatures, and now I can compare your charts to the staff and make sense of it!

Great idea! :)

What is a piano scale?

The quick definition is that scales are sets of notes that go from one octave to the next in an organized, logical manner. Kind of like the ingredients of a recipe for a song or the measurements on a ruler.

Since there are many different types of songs, there are also many different types of scales, though most classical and a lot of contemporary music fits within scale types known as Major and Minor.

In the video below, starting with some abbreviated history about how octaves and fifths and fourths were discovered, I demonstrate that major and minor scales are based around 3 primary triads (3 note chords) in their respective modes at the root, the perfect 4th (known as the Subdominant) and the perfect 5th (known as the Dominant). A primary triad consists of the note you begin with, its Dominant and a Major or Minor third in between, which sets the "mode."

In the second half of the video, I also explain how any major scale can easily be converted to its parallel minor and vice versa. These 2 basic principles are important to learning and understanding music and theory and especially when studying tonal harmony in classical music.

If you would like to download (Free) charts I made showing the major and natural minor scales and the one/four/five side by side comparison that I discuss in the video, Click Here (145scalecharts.pdf).

I teach piano to adult beginner and intermediate students in Louisville, Ky.

I am not a videographer, so I hope you find this home made attempt at an instructional video informative, feel free to ask questions or add comments on the YouTube page for this video.


Here is a follow up video that gives you a quick and easy way to memorize your fourths and fifths.
