Piano Music Scales:
Fingers and Notes
Piano music scales often use the same finger pattern. Some however are different and depend on which black notes come up in that particular scale.
Here you'll find piano scales in the treble and bass clef with their fingering.
Piano Scales Fingering
Most scales have the same fingering.
Some scales have particular fingering because the placement of the black keys in the scale or key signature.
Remember that for both hands, your thumbs are "1" and your pinkies are "5".
Some of these scales can be called by 2 different names. I will use the easiest name for the scale but also let you know what the other name is.
