I've just been told about this download - http://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/note-perfect/id400187011?mt=8 . I haven't seen it myself, as I don't use the necessary gizmos, but it is suppposed to be very helpful. This is free until the end of June - so move fast!

Good luck.

When reading tenor clef you just need to know that C is placed on the 4th line up on the staff. All the other notes can be found by reference, it will just take some practice though. There's a good article on the different clefs at http://www.goodclef.com/clefs/ Hope that helps

+1 to Grimmdude. As a cello beginner, I'm used to the bass clef. However, in my free time I often prepare music sheets in lilypond. Now I'm busy with a concerto from Vivaldi, and I had to read in treble and alto clef as well. At the beginning it was pretty slow of course, always counting from the C, where the other notes are. but after a while You just get used to it.
Maybe one more idea: If You have pieces, that You played long ago, and remember only partially, edit the music sheet and put it in tenor clef. (transposition will maybe also necessary), and then You can practice the clef with known pieces.

This "flash card" system might help you practice a bit.

I find the main thing that helps is just to keep reading it and reading it, much as you did when first learning bass or treble clef - soon you will start to read the notes automatically.

Hegyhati, the site you mentioned is actually a very good one - I didn't know about it but just tried it and like it very much because you can set the range. Start with just a range of a few notes and get them in your mind really well, then expand the range - I like it!

look at where the center of the clef is; that's where middle C is. http://i.imgur.com/Xy7uz.jpg
