Its helpful, shows all the sharps and flats in a scale of a note Whilst scaling in the key of C there are no sharps or flats, and I cant really explain here, but google a diagram of it.

The circle of fifths is a chart that shows how key signatures are formed.


If you start at the key of c it's all natural so you go up a fifth to g. (c-d-e-f-g)
C: c-d-e-f-g-a-b

The key of G adds one sharp. To find the sharp go down a half step. So it adds an F#.
G: g-a-b-c-d-e-F#

Next is D it adds one sharp a half step down, C#. The keys are also cumulative so you add the sharps from the last key. (The F# from the key of G)
D: d-e-F#-g-a-b-C#

You keep going until you get to C# which is all Sharp.

Then the flats come in. I find it easier to rememberif you go up a fourth (or down a fifth) from c to get an f. the key of F has 1 flat, B flat.

If you look at the chart, the letter to the left of f is b which is an easy way to remember what the next flat is in the key.

The flats are cumulative also so in the key of b flat you have b flat and the note to the left of the b flat which is e flat.

That's basically how it works.

And here's the chart.
