If i`m transposing(piano/clarinet) would this be right:
Key of Eb=Key of Db
Key of F=Key of Eb
Key of Gb=Key of E

I need to transpose this for a piece I`m performing soon

1. Take your key signature and add two sharps to it.
2. Take every note up a Major 1/2 (1 whole step).

That will do it for you.

Piano`s C (no sharps) is clarinet`s key of D (2 sharps)
D(two)=E (four sharps)
F(1 flat)=G(1 sharp), etc. So, add two sharps to the piano`s key basically in this order: F, C, G, D, A, E, B
Once key signiture is figured out, you play the written piano notes one note higher, playing based on the new key you just figured out. Hope this helps.
