AbstractEach note in a piece may be sharp, flat, or natural, depending on the key, and playing in the correct key is one of the biggest challenges in learning to read common notation. Practicing scales can make playing in the correct key feel more natural and automatic. The key of a piece is always indicated by the key signature at the beginning of the staff. The keys of C major and A minor have no sharps or flats. The keys of G major and E minor have one sharp: F sharp.
