F major or F-sharp major is a major scale based on F, consisting of the pitches F, G, A, B, C, D, and E. Its key signature has six sharps.

Its relative minor is D minor, usually replaced by E minor and its parallel minor is F minor. Its enharmonic equivalent is G major. In writing music in E major for B-flat instruments, it is preferrable to use an F-sharp key rather than a G-flat key signature.

F-sharp major is the key of the minuet in Joseph Haydn's "Farewell" Symphony, of Beethoven's Piano Sonata, Op. 78, of Chopin's Barcarolle, of Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2, of Mahler's unfinished Tenth Symphony, of Erich Korngold's [[Symphony in F-sharp major (Korngold)|Symphony Op.
