Overview of the Circle of 5ths – Lesson 37

In this lesson we introduce you to the “Circle of Fifths” and explain its functions and importance.

Syn’s Tips

This is a lot to take in I know, but absorb as much of it as you can now. This overview will make a lot more sense when we explore what key pieces of music are in or what we call “Key Signatures”.

There is much more that we will get into later but for now, try and memorize this as much as you can to give you a solid learning foundation.

Do any of you have any tips or tricks for beginners to better understand the circle of fifths and fourths? If so, we’d love to check em out, just upload videos of yourselves showing us what ya got in the "Lesson Comments" section below!

Aaron Mccammon WOW! I have literally been a member for approx. 30 minutes and I have just learned more in that short time than I did with all the hours of private lessons. You have a way of making a theory easy to understand. I was familiar with this to a point but never completely "got it" comprehensively. Before your video lesson was even finished it all made sense suddenly and I get it. To think of all the migraine I suffered trying to figure out what my instructor was trying to teach me. Lessons were so confusing and made me feel completely unintelligent but you sir have just made me realize I just needed someone to start at the beginning and work each step of the lesson for it to make sense. I haven't played much the last 5 years as I felt stuck but you have me excited to play again. Thank you for giving your time to teach us lost souls you rock!
