Sure they are. It's a little weird because it involves an E sharp, which you don't see a lot, but it's right.

Reading keys and such is really where my skills are weak, but now that I look at it, it does look weird. It says that C and E are sharp, but then the note played on "a" is wrong. HotMK is in B minor, and this looks like B minor, but then the key signature is wrong. Still, I immediately got where they were going with it.

Nah, you missed that a little. It is in B-minor (2 sharps, on C and F).
Well, that was a long walk down a windy beach to a cafe that was closed...
