How to build a Major Scale?
Here we will learn how to build major scales.
A whole step (W) is the distance equal to two half steps.
Use the following major scale formula to build the major scales:
W – W – H – W – W – W – H
H = half step
W = whole step
Example: C Major Scale
Let’s begin with the root note C on the piano keyboard.
A whole step above C is D.
A whole step above D is E.
A half step above E is F.
A whole step above F is G.
A whole step above G is A.
A whole step above A is B.
A half step above B is C.
C – D – E – F – G – A – B – C are the notes of the C Major Scale.

Remember, a half step (H) is the distance between two adjacent keys on a piano keyboard, and it is the smallest musical interval in music. A whole step (W) is the distance equal to two half steps.
