There is no Cb in the key sig. In fact, Cb rarely appears in a key sig.Since there is a bar line preceding the C, any accidentals would be cancelled.So it couldn't be a C#.There is no reason at all why it should be a Cb.(Often called B, often incorrectly...) Therefore, it is played as a simple C natural, the white one on a piano.

The key (Bb Major/G minor) has a signature of two flats (Bb and Eb). So, all notes except these two will be natural unless they are modified by an accidental (sharp, flat, or natural). When a note is modified by an accidental, all following notes of the same pitch in that measure will be modified by the same unless they have another accidental. So, the C# ...

I would advise you take some time to learn how to read sheet music. Teoria has a set of beginner tutorials that will really help you to understand how music notation works, and how to understand what all the symbols and notes mean. That said, on to the question. Key Signatures In the key signature(the 2 b signs on the left) you have a Bb and an Eb. this ...

I hadn't really thought about the "engraving" standard, but in the diatonic tonal world, there are two answers: In equal temperament there are 24 "keys", if by key you mean tonal structure based on some transposition of the major or minor scale. In non-equal temperament, especially in pure just intonation, there are no enharmonic equivalents (Gb ≠ F#), ...

If you use equal temperament there will be 12 major keys and 12 minor keys, or 24 all together, as others have said on here. If you use unequal temperament there will be a lot more, since C♯ and D♭ etc. will be different notes (C♯ will be slightly higher than D♭).

It is worth noting that there is no such scale as G# Major / A# Major and so on. The only Major scales that start on a note with a sharp is F# Major and C# Major. When asked "How many major and minor musical keys are there?", what is the generally accepted correct answer? The answer should be one Major and Minor scale for each note in an octave. ...

One way of looking at it would be this: There are 12 different pitches in relative pitch, so a major and minor for each of these means there are 24 keys. However, each of these (apart from C and Am) is in a sharp or flat key, so there is an enharmonic key for each of these with the opposite, either flats or sharps. As for C and Am, these are not either sharp ...
