Key Signatures – Memory Helper Charts

An easy way for students to memorise key signatures - based on circle of 5ths

This key signature chart gives you a quick and easy way to help students memorise key signatures, both major and minor, in ALL keys.  It uses the cycle of 5ths, and rhymes to help students remember the order of both sharps and flats.

Knowing key signatures is so vital for music students!

  • For those who like to teach by rote, teach students to write these two key signature charts out by memory, to help them work out any key signature in a theory exam.
  • Key signatures are one of the foundations of music theory – scales, intervals, chords, cadences, melody & harmony, modulations and analysis.
  • Helpful for AMEB and Trinity College theory exams, and HSC Music 2 & 3 theory.
