What is a key signature? What does it mean when there are 3 flats next to the clef?
I'm taking a comprehensive teacher's exam and studying the music section, I haven't a clue. Thanks for your help.

The key signature tells what key the piece is in.
The three flats next to the clef sign means there are three flats in the piece and tells which key you are in.
I hope this helps!

The key signature tells you what key a piece is in or in other words it tells you which notes will be sharp or flat in a piece.
If you have three flats in a piece then all B's, E's, and A's will be flat through the entire piece unless you have an accidental (sharp or flat) marked in the music.
