  1. A standard piano has a total of 88 keys which includes seven complete octaves, plus an additional three lower notes below the bottom C. Today’s modern piano has 52 white keys and 36 black keys. The black keys are raised and are set farther back than the white keys. The white keys represent the musical tones A, B, C, D, E, F, and G. The black keys represent half-step intervals — known as sharps and flats — between various notes. A group of seven white keys and five black keys together make up the 12 notes we call an octave.
