Now, Let's Play Some Notes!

The piano is a musical instrument that produces sound when its keys are pressed.

As shown in the diagram, the piano keyboard layout consists of a regular arrangement of white keys and black keys. Pressing a key causes a certain note to be produced. In the diagram, the white keys are labeled with their names in the musical alphabet and with their tonic names.

First, let's play some notes by pressing the keys.
