In this lesson, our instructor Laura Ryan goes through the major scale in 12 different keys. Beginning with C Major and ending in B Major, Laura also explains that musicians aim for scales that do not contain double sharps or double flats. She concludes the video with writing and listening to each major scale.
Using the Major scale intervallic pattern of WWHWWWH will enable you to play a major scale in every key.
Using the rule of the key signature will also enable you to play a major scale in every key.
