Music Theory QuickThink: 

-          The ascending pattern of a Major scale is WWHWWWH

-          One octave Major scales start and end on the same pitch an octave apart (although scale can extend multiple octaves).

-          Each note letter is used in a major scale, and it is used only once (aside from the first and last note).

-          Notate the starting pitch, name each note in ascending order between the octave (ex. B, C, D, E, F, G, A, B)

-          Apply accidentals as needed to maintain the WWHWWWH pattern. (Ex. B, C#, D#, E, F#, G#, A#, B)
