According to dictionary.com:

Key-the principal tonality of a composition: a symphony in the key of C minor.


It is the note around which the other notes revolve.

Quote by Maj_Tom
A key is a certian group of notes that you play.
I'm going to have to say that you described a scale more than a key.

okay, a key is bassically a collection of notes from which a song is made up. you cant just use everyonte as it would sound dischordant. as such a key, comprising of seven notes, is used. If you're in the key of C you use C D E F G A B, but in A it's A B Csharp D E Fsharp G A
