Key

Besides being a component of a keyboard, in music, the key is the pitch of the tonic of the musical scale used. It is the reference point for the rest of the notes in a scale. In our equal temperament musical system used today the same music played in different keys will have a different pitch level, but all the same intervals. In other words, the spacing of the notes from each other stays the same, thus the term equal temperament.
