Music Key Signature


Key Signatures?

Music key signatures tell you what sharps or flats to play
in a key. One way to learn how to play chords is by knowing the key
signature of the root note of the chord. Key signatures also tell you
what notes to play in a scale.

C major is the only key that
has no sharps or flats.

There are 7 key signatures
that have sharps in them. Here they are:

G: F#
D: F#, C#
A: F#, C#, G#
E: F#, C#, G#, D#
B: F#, C#, G#, D#, A#
F#: F#, C#, G#, D#, A#, E#
C#: F#, C#, G#, D#, A#, E#, B#

Notice that all the keys repeat the sharps from the keys before. An
easy saying to remember the order of the sharps is:
Father Charles Goes Down And Ends Battle.

The last sharp of the key is
always the note before the name of the
key. For example, F# is the last note before G. D# is the last note
before E. If you remember the saying, you can figure out how
many sharps are in each key

For example, “Father
Charles Goes Down And”. A comes before B so, B
major has 5 sharps. Because of the saying you know they are F, C, G, D,
and A sharp.

Here’s what the sharps look like on a staff. This is the key
of C# Major.

Now for the flats. There are also 7 keys that have
key signatures with flats in them.

Here’s a list:

F: Bb
Bb: Bb, Eb
Eb: Bb, Eb, Ab
Ab: Bb, Eb, Ab, Db
Db: Bb, Eb, Ab, Db, Gb
Gb: Bb, Eb, Ab, Db, Gb, Cb
Cb: Bb, Eb, Ab, Db, Gb, Cb, Fb

Here’s an easy way to remember the order of the flats. The first
4 flats spell the word “bead”
. Then, you
just need to remember G C F.

Also, the last flat in the
previous key tells you what the next key
with one more flat will be. For example, Eb major has 3 flats
– Bb, Eb,
Ab. So the key that has 4 flats is Ab.

Here’s how all of the flats look on the staff. This is the
key of Cb Major.

Music key signatures are always written the same on the staff.
So, if you need to write them, always put them on the same lines or
spaces you see here.

When playing in a specific key
signature, remember to always play a sharp or flat if
it’s in the key signature
If something sounds a little off while you’re playing, check
you’re playing the right sharps or flats. If the key
signature says to
play an F#, every F should be an F#. 

Piano Key Notes

What Are the Piano Key Notes?

The piano keyboard is essentially a pattern. To learn piano key notes, you need to learn the pattern.

The first thing you see on the keyboard is that there are white keys and black keys. Look at the picture below and notice the sets of black keys.

There are groups of black keys. Groups of 2 and groups of 3. These groups will help you to know what every other piano key is.
Note that the piano key notes go from low to high. When sitting at a keyboard, the low notes are to your left and the high notes are to your right.

Let’s start learning the piano key notes. We’ll start by looking at the group of 2 black notes. There are 3 white notes surrounding this group of 2. They are C, D, and E.

Every white key is named after a letter. It’s the “musical alphabet.” The musical alphabet starts on A and ends on G. Then it repeats. For example: A, B, C, D, E, F, G, A, B, etc.

Look below at the picture of the group of 2 black notes. The note in the middle of the 2 is D. On the entire piano, you call the note in the middle of the group of 2 black notes “D”.

Now just like the English alphabet, C comes before D and E comes after D. So, on the piano keyboard, C is lower than D and E is higher than D. This is the same for the entire piano keyboard.

You can find all other piano key notes from these if you wanted. If you start on E, just keep going higher by repeating the musical alphabet.

Next, we have the group of 3 black notes. On the left of the group of 3 we have F. On the right, B. Look at the picture below. What comes after F? What comes before B?

If you think of the musical alphabet, G comes after F. A comes after G and before B.

Now here they are all together. This pattern repeats itself over and over on the piano keyboard. You now know all the names of the white keys.

The black keys also have names. They can be called by 2 names. One is a sharp and one is a flat. A sharp is made by going higher. A flat is made by going lower.

Look above at D. The black note to the right of D is called D sharp (D#). The black note to the left of D is called D flat (Db). Another name for D# is E flat (Eb). Another name for Db is C sharp (C#).

Notice that there are some pairs of white keys with no black key in the middle. With these pairs (C and B, F and E), making a sharp or flat may mean playing another white key. For example, Cb is B. B# is C.

Now that you know what the notes are, you need to practice them to really get them in your head. Then you won’t have to look anymore. You can practice by randomly picking notes on the keyboard and seeing how quickly you can name the notes.

How to Read Piano Notes

Want To Know How To

Read Piano Notes?

It’s not as hard as it looks. Learning how to read
piano notes is about learning a pattern - as many
things are in music. First, if you’re not sure about which notes are
which on the piano keyboard, read piano
key notes.

Notes are named after letters. There’s a
“musical alphabet” that’s quite a bit shorter than the English one. It
starts at A and ends at G. Then it repeats. For example: A, B, C, D, E,
F, G, A, B, etc.

To play the piano, you need to learn about 2clefs.”
They are signs which basically tell you whether to play high notes or
low notes. They are the Treble Clef and Bass Clef.

Usually, you play the notes in the treble clef with
your right hand. These are the higher notes. Play
the notes in the bass clef with your left
. These are the lower notes.

Now, I’m going to give you all
of the notes on all the lines and spaces. After you go through them,
I’ll recommend some exercises to help you practice them. It’s easier to
learn them in little groups in order to remember them and play them

Music is written on lines and spaces -
this is called the staff. When going up through the
musical alphabet (like A, B, C, D), you alternate

line - space - line - space. For example: A = line, B = space, C =
line, D = space. This is for the notes that are right next to each
other on the piano keyboard.

To learn where the notes are on the
staff just by looking, you can learn some sayings.
This is the easiest way to begin to read piano notes. Let’s start with
the treble clef.

Spaces - Treble Clef

The letters for the spaces on
the treble clef form a word: FACE. F is the lowest
space on the treble clef, and E is the highest.

Lines - Treble Clef

The letters on the lines from
lowest to highest are E G B D F. The saying that I use to remember this
order is: “Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge.” Feel free
to make up one that you like.

Notice that the lowest line - E - is followed by the lowest space -F.

Spaces - Bass Clef

Now for the bass clef. The
sayings I use to remember the lines and spaces for the bass clef have
to do with animals. For the spaces I use the saying, “All Cows
Eat Grass

Lines - Bass Clef

For the lines in the bass
clef, I use the saying, “Great Big Ducks Fly Away.”

These are the essentials for how to read
piano notes. Are you ready to go on?

If you want some more details on the types
of notes
you’ll see on the lines (8th notes, half notes,
etc.), sharps and flats and how to read notes that aren’t on the lines
or spaces, go to piano
music notes.

There are also some piano
notes charts

you can look at for a quick reference.On the piano
notes diagram

page, you’ll find the notes on the staff in relation to the
notes on the keyboard.

Piano Music Notes

Need To Learn A Little More

About Piano Music Notes?

It’s all about learning the patterns! This page on
piano music notes will go beyond the basics. For an
overview of just the basics go to,
to read piano notes.

On this page, we’ll be talking about:

1. How to read notes that are not on the lines and spaces

2. Sharps and Flats

3. The types of notes and how many beats or counts they get.

Here's a quick refresher of
the lines and spaces.

Ledger Lines

First, we’ll start with reading the
notes that are not on the staff. The staff is the group of 5 lines. (To
see the notes on the lines and spaces, look at the note


First a reminder: notes
on the piano alternate from line to space
or space to line. When going up the musical alphabet, you are going
from line to space or space to line. This is critical to playing piano
music notes!

In order to read the piano
music notes that are not on the staff, this is what you need to do. Keep
counting up from line to space through the musical alphabet until you
reach the note you want to know
example, the very highest note on the treble clef staff is an F. The
next one in the musical alphabet is G. G sits on top of the staff.

To make a note even higher than that
one, you need to draw a line. It’s called
a ledger line
To learn the notes above or below the staffs, just count up or down the
musical alphabet. Remember to alternate line - space - line -space.

Sharps and Flats

You will also see sharps and flats in front of notes. The sharp-tells you that you must play the note one semi-tone higher
than the note written. If you see a sharp before an A, you play the
black note directly above the A - A#.

A flat -
is the opposite. It means play the note one semi-tone below
the note you see written. For example, instead of playing A, you play
the black note right below A, Ab.

In playing music, you will
come across key signatures.They tell you that
certain piano music notes will need to be sharp or flat all the time.
You will see a natural sign -
if it’s not supposed to be sharp or flat. The main thing is to remember
that those notes are sharp or flat always while you’re playing in that
key. For more information on key signature’s, click

Notes and Beats

Now to read piano music notes, you need to know more than where they
are on the keyboard. You also need to know how long to hold
. It has to do with counting.

When you are playing
something, think of a drum beat in the background.
You have to keep in time with that beat. Now picture the drum beat
going. A whole note will stay held down for 4 of
the beats. A whole note gets 4 counts.

A half note will stay held down for 2 of the beats.
A half note gets 2 counts.

A quarter note is the drum beat. It plays at the
same time.

A quarter note gets 1 beat.

An 8th note will play 2 times for every one drum
beat. Two 8th notes get one count. One 8th note gets half a beat.

And finally, 16th notes. They play 4 times for every drum beat. Four
16th notes get one count. One 16th note gets a quarter of a count.

To learn all of these parts of
music at once is a little overwhelming. It can be good to take
things slowly
and learn and practice, learn and
. I always recommend taking a
course in order to really get things down. It will really speed up your
learning and playing in the long run.

this area of things, I especially recommend an online course. Most of
what you need to know is a matter of practice. Plus, the online courses
are cheaper than piano lessons. You have now learned a great deal about
piano music notes!

What are Piano Chords?

Just What are Piano Chords?

You see them everywhere so at some point you have to stop and ask, “What are piano chords?” Well, go to your piano or keyboard ... then play a C, E, and G together. You have just played a chord. It’s a C chord.

So, what are piano chords? A chord is a group of notes - usually 3 or 4. What letters and numbers you see in the chord tells you what notes to play.

In the beginning, you can start by learning major chords. They are 3 note chords. They will sound the same as the C chord I mentioned earlier.

Major chords are written as just a letter name. For example: F, G, Bb, C#. To play a major chord, you have to skip every other note. With the C chord, we skipped playing D and F. For a G chord, you play the notes G, B, and D. You don’t play A and C.

There are 3 major chords you can play using only the white keys: C, G, and F. With different letter names than these, you need to add in some black keys so that they sound right. For example, you play a D chord by using D, F#, A.

Now, try playing an A, C, and E together on the piano. It sounds different than the major chord. It’s a minor chord. There are 3 minor chords that you can play only on the white keys. They are am, dm, and em. Start on the letter written and skip every other note.

The small “m” means it’s a minor chord. To find other minor chords, you’ll need to play on some black notes. You can do the same thing as you did with the major keys. Listen to the sound of the chord and try to recreate it starting on a different key.

Twice now I’ve mentioned playing black notes – or sharps and flats. One way to figure out which notes to play is by sound. Another way is to memorize chords. I have a page of chord charts. You can look up individual chords there.

The third way of learning more about chords is to know the different types and how to make them. You've answered the beginner question of "what are piano chords." Now you can ask the same question but a step higher. You'll be asking, "what are piano chords" in terms of their names and how to build them.

There are many different types of chords. It can be a little overwhelming when you see them all there. In a song however, there are usually only a few complicated ones. Knowing the major chords and minor chords will get you far.

How to Read Piano Tabs

A 49 key keyboard. "c4" means note "c" on octave "4" which is the "c" key in the middle of this keyboard. Notice how nicely I have labeled the notes / octaves.

Reading tabs (simple):

Here's a simple example of an individual note piano tab... the scale of "f".


Here's another example... the scale of "f" played on two octaves:

Tabs are read from left to right (notes above and below each other are played simultaneously).
- The Numbers (3, 2, 2 and 1 in the above example)indicate the octave.  All octaves start on the "c" key.  Octave 4 is in the middle of the keyboard.  
- Lowercase Letters(a,b,c,d,e,f,g)
indicate the note names as natural
(the white keys)
- Uppercase Letters(A,C,D,F,G)
indicate the note names as sharp, ie: A#,C#,D#,F#,G#
black keys)
.  Adding the sharp symbol after the note is also acceptable, but using the upper/lower case method is recommended because it saves space. 
Note:For simplicity (and to not confuse "b" notes with "flats",
"sharps" are used exclusively instead of "flats". eg: The note, "B
flat", is represented by its equivalent, "A#" or just

- The "|" symbols  separate measures/sections
of notes

- The "-" symbols are used for spacing between
notes.  These dashes indicate timing - the more dashes there are, the
longer the time between the notes.

Reading tabs (advanced symbols):

Piano tabs can describe individual notes (as seen above) or chord names or both. Here's a more advanced example of a piano tab that describes both:

[D] [Gm]
R 3|--a-d-F-|--g-d-g-|--------|
L 2|F>d>>>>>|g>d>>>>>|F.------|
L 1|F>F>>>>>|g>A>>>>>|F.------|

- Letters on the top line (the [D] and the [Gm]) indicate chord names.
- "R" indicates the notes on the line are played on the Right hand
- "L" indicates the notes on the line are played on the Left hand
- The ">" symbols indicate the note should be held/sustained
- The "." symbols indicate the note should be cut (for a staccato effect)
