♦Mod on Genealogy and Family History.SE

I love Jesus, classical music, history, and Italian food, in that order. I also enjoy studying math.

I've been playing music for about five years now and I am proficient on the cornet and the recorder. I also play a little piano on the side.

comment How many (major and minor) keys are there? Why?
Although many musicians confuse key with scale, a scale is an ordered set of notes typically used in a key, while the key is the center of gravity, established by particular chord progressions.

comment How many (major and minor) keys are there? Why?
-1 These are scales, not keys. This has nothing to do with the number of keys.
