In this lesson, our instructor Laura Ryan gives students a look at key signatures. Laura explains that key signatures are a way of representing multiple accidentals at once. She walks viewers through each scales' sharps and flats, writes the key signatures on a staff, and plays the scales on the keyboard.

Order of sharps is: FCGDAEB and the order of sharp keys is G,D,A,E,B,C#, F#
Order of flats is: BEADGCF and the order of flat keys is F,Bb, Eb, Ab, Db, Gb, Cb
