free learning tool for the circle of fifths
 
Good morning,

as I had to learn the circle of fifths myself lately I wondered if there are any free learning tools around on the net. I didn't find one and programmed one myself. Please take a look here and tell your students about it, in case you like it :)

Suggestions are of course most welcome :)
Yours, Jan

I always count round in fifths, or fourths if I'm descending or going into the flats. Remember, you can count in major seconds too for sticking a step, or two fifths minus an octave.

wow! I really like this. It's helping me understand a lot of stuff I'm too lazy to do on my own!

Great idea, and nicely designed, but there's a few mistakes - not in the info, only in the connections between titles, text and diagrams (check it out).

I also think you should try and use a proper flat sign instead of "b" - either that, or use upper case and "m" for minor keys. Eg, I find "bb" confusing. "Bbm" is better, if you have to use "b" rather than a flat sign.

I think in terms of tones, who cares about the notes other then the root or what key your in.

Well, this helps you jump round to the next key or whatever.

Interesting scientific/theoretic note too.
