In Classics to Moderns vol. 37 page 143 is Prokofiev's Parade of Grasshoppers. In the third measure there is an E sharp F and strange as it may seem I don't know where E sharp on the piano is.
Thanks for helping me out.

Hi suzyq, An E# is actually an F, there really isn't an E#, same as there is no B#. that is actually a C

Thanks. I have a new teacher and Tuesday 1/15 is my first lesson.
Until then I'm trying to keep up my sightreading - for what it's worth and as the expression goes, noodling around.
Always wanted to try to play something by Prokofiev.

While E# is played on the F key, there most assuredly is an "E#". Also an "Fb", a "Cb", and a "B#". If you play key signatures that call for these notes I can assure you, your instructor will not call it F. He will call it E#.
