Two-octave Scales
Sharp Keys G to E



This page is part of the Musicarta Patreon 'Scale City' offering. If you have not already done so, browse the series home page for orientation, and work methodically for maximum benefit.

You should already have worked through the introductory two-octave scales page. This page applies a similar practice template to the sharp keys G through E.

The scale practice Contour Diagrams

Here are the Contour Diagrams for the scale practice routine here demonstrated. Try, as much as possible, to play from the pattern, rather than following the notes.

(There is 'from the middle' pattern [U2 D2 U3 D3 U4 D4 U2 D2] first.)


G major

Remind yourself of the G major"key-specific keyboard". As soon as you see that one-sharp key signature, these are the keys you play!

Build up "from the middle thumbs", pausing the video to practice each pattern. This isn't a play-along video - practice the patterns at your own speed, initially.



D major

Add C sharp, the black key just below the tonic (D).

Practice the patterns in the video one by one.



A major

Three sharps. You add G sharp, the black key just below the tonic.

Practice the patterns in the video one by one.



E major

Add D sharp, the black key just below the tonic.

Practice the patterns in the video one by one. Afterwards, see if you can play from the Contour Diagram master diagram, below.


Regular practice

As soon as you can, play your two-octave sharp scales direct from the Contour Diagrams.

NB: Sharp key B major is on the 'all the black keys' page, but first, work through the flat key majors.
