In this lesson, our instructor Laura Ryan goes through an explanation of the C Major Scale, Whole Steps, and Half Steps. She identifies a helpful whole and half step pattern that allows students to find major scales in any key, a pattern that is showcased in examples at the end of the video.
The interval of a whole step on the piano is made of 2 half steps. These half steps may be black or white.
