Subj: [kl] transposing on the fly
Date: Tue, 26 Oct 2004 16:52:43 -0400

Hi, all.

Someone wrote: "For some transpositions there are possibilities in
thinking different clefs and adjusting key sigs, but the main clarinet
requirement of up a tone doesn't really work like that."

Sorry. This isn't true. There are other clefs than treble and bass - five
of them, to be exact. If you learn alto clef and add 2 sharps, you can do
exactly what you are suggesting: transpose up a step. And it doesn't take
too long, once you get started.

Best o' luck,
