The 12 Major Keys With Chords for Each Scale

During the last two years, I have been teaching myself piano, and it has been very difficult to find information in the way that I wanted explained and displayed.  So I built my own notebook of files.  This sheet is your twelve major keys with chords for the scale of each key.  I hope that this will be useful to someone else.

I used the Susan Triplett series, which is a 3 book set with a workbook and an audio cd.  This woman is very thorough and does an excellent job at teaching theory, which is essential for completely understanding how to make your piano work for you.

  1. This is exciting, Melinda! Thanks for the info. I have taken a few years of piano -YEARS ago – and am so rusty now. I would love to be able to just sit down and play. You are inspiring me! 🙂

    • Yay! I am so glad it is helpful. I keep this sheet with me so I can play any song in any of the 12 Major keys. I learned the chord method, where you assign a number to each chord and so as long as you know what number chord is being used then you can play the song in any key. I am sure I will post more about that, because I really want to put free, useful stuff out there in a style that is learnable. There are lots of tutorials out there on youtube but few real teachers. Y’all will just have to put up wth my singing, lol.
