to tell the key of the music is all you have to do is look at the keysignature which is located in the begining of the music. to determine what key the music is in just count how many sharps or flats there is and match it to the right key. Sadly I have not yet memorized all the different keys but sooner or later i will.

It's quite simple. No sharps or flats is the key of C. For the sharps, the key is one half step avove the sharp. Example: 1 # which is the F# is the key of G. 2#'s F# and C# is the key of D. It is very important to know the progression of sharps and flats. That is where the memorization part comes into play. For the flats, it is a bi different. One flat the Bflat is the key of F. This one you have to memorize. Two flats, the B flat and the E flat is the key of B flat. Take the previous flat , and that is the key, the previous flat being the B flat. Again, you must know the proper progression of flats to know the key.
