In the treble clef line , what key is the hash tag note?

I know it’s a black key but can’t remember which .

    Do you remember, which note you would press if there was no sharp ("hash tag")? The sharp raises the note by a semitone. Have a look: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Key_signature – Arsak Apr 13 '19 at 14:51

This hashtag is what we call a "sharp." It raises the pitch by one half step.

I'm assuming you mean the sharp in the bass clef. (Based on the music, it's hard for me to imagine these both being in treble clef.)

Since the written note is F, you'll move it up one half step to the nearest black key to make it F♯. If you're still having trouble finding this key, look for the group of three black keys; it will be the one on the far left.

If the left hand is in fact in treble clef, this pitch will be a D♯, which is the right-most black key in the grouping of two black keys.

    Does it look weird to you - there's no note to be sung with the word 'peace'. I've heard of peace and quiet, maybe this takes it further? – Tim Apr 13 '19 at 15:59

    @Tim: I think the tune goes mifa mi re do re so. The note of peace is in the bass clef. It seems to be an arrangement for "easy piano" (beginners) – Albrecht Hügli Apr 13 '19 at 17:05
