All major scales

This page shows piano and treble clef diagrams of all major scales, starting from note C.

All keys are shown, including the commonly used 12 keys of the Circle of fifths diagram, and other theoretical (ie. not practically useable) keys.

Theoretical keys are clearly marked (they would have double sharps or flats in the key signature), and alternative enharmonic keys that sound the same are suggested in each case.
