Circle of fifths

In music theory, the circle of fifths (also called the circle of fourths) is a visual aid to understanding keys.

There are 12 individual notes on the piano keyboard: 7 white notes and 5 black notes.

Each individual note has its own major and minor key.

The circle of fifths is laid out like a clock face.
