Tips on the F Major Scale with Kiara – Different Hands, Different Fingerings

Kiara is having trouble remembering that for the F major scale, there are different fingerings for each hand.  We use different fingerings to play the scale more optimally and fluently.  It also teaches a new stretch between the 4th and 1st finger both playing ascending and descending.

Remember for the F major:

RH:  1 – 2 – 3 – 4 – 1 – 2 – 3 – 4

where the 4th finger plays B-flat as F major has B-flat as an accidental.  The thumb moves underneath the 4th finger to C and not B as we already play B-flat.

LH:  5 – 4 – 3 – 2 – 1 – 3 – 2 – 1

where the 3rd finger plays B-flat.  The fingering for the left hand is the same as any other standard scale fingering.
