What is the Order of Sharps and the Order of Flats?

The order of sharps: F,C,G,D,A,E,B

A good acronym that works for sharps and flats is:(for sharps)

"Father Charles goes down and ends battle"

The for flats:

"Battle ends and down goes Charles father!"


An acronym to remember that could be, "Father Christmas Gave Dad An Electric Blanket," or "Fat Cats Go Dancing And Elephants Boogie."

The order of flats: B,E,A,D,G,C,F

An acronym for flats could be, "Blanket Exploded And Dad Got Cold Feet."

I like to use "Fat Cats Gobble Dirt And Eat Bugs" for the sharps. I thought it was funny when I was a kid and now my piano students think its funny.
