Piano Scales – Scale Segment View

All piano scales are built on two identical 3-note segments, plus 1 note.
That 1 note is either in the middle of the scale (4th), or the top of the scale (7th).

In this visual of piano scales you will see that all the scales in the area

of the two black keys and F major – C, Db, D, Eb, E, F – have similar

characteristics and all the scales in the area of the three black keys —

G, Ab, A, Bb, B – have similar characteristics and Gb (F#) is different.

For the scales in the area of the two black keys — C, Db, D, Eb, E, F –

notes 1, 2, 3 form the same shape as notes 5, 6, 7 and note 4 is odd.

For the scales in the area of the three black keys – G, Ab, A, Bb, B –

notes 1, 2, 3 form the same shape as notes 4, 5, 6 and note 7 is odd.

For Gb (F#) notes 2, 3, 4 form the same shape as notes 5, 6, 7 and note 1 is odd.

Use these visuals to help you to remember scales.
