Well Sarah, what your describing is a good example of how deficient our
musical education system (through high school) is in the United States.
However, it isn't very hard to find out. I have a (Schirmer Pronouncing)
Pocket Manual of Musical Terms, edited by Theodore Baker, and published by
Schirmer Books. Price $5.95.
This book includes an explanation of these other clefs and a wealth of
useful information besides. I keep it close at hand and look up unfamiliar
terms whenever I encounter them.

Personally, I find it easier to read treble cleff for my bass clarinet
Most of the time though, we play the Tenor Sax part becasue the bass part
written in bass cleff, and none of us bass clarinet players know how to
bass cleff. I have never looked at a tenor or alto cleff in my life (not
I am that old anyways - 14) so I have no idea what they look like. Oh well!
