I want to be able to memorize all major and minor keys (including melodic, harmonic and natural minors), so that I can improve my sight reading and transposition skills. I am trying to become a more versatile songwriter.
So far, I can:
- Comfortably sight read and compose in C major;
- Play major scales in each key on the keyboard (simple muscle memory); and
- Recreate the circle of fifths from memory.
Please also note that I am comfortable with music notation and that I compose music on staff paper.
My timeframe is six months and I can afford to dedicate an hour per day.
I want to know suggestions for the most effective approach.
I have a keyboard, guitar, flashcards, pen and paper, theory textbooks, an iphone, a small midi keyboard, a DAW, the internet, etc. . .
Please let me know the best way to use my tools to become a master of all 12 keys. Thanks all!
