HELP!! clefs and notes and viola stuff    06:28 on Saturday, March 01, 2008 Vote for this post Vote against this post 0 votes

I'm currently writing out a composition for my GCSE Music coursework and I have a viola part which I just realised I have written out two octaves too low because
1. i was TRYING to write in alto clef and i've never used it before
2. my brains a bit fuzzy so i failed to register that the middle line is MIDDLE c not just a random c
3. i'm utterly daft

BASICALLY i want the viola to be playing in the 2nd octave above middle c but its now written as if its playing below the middle c

Obviously i have to start again but what clef should i use now instead of alto??

Help would be much much appreciated!!

the second octive above middle c is pretty high.... for a viola... u would want to use the treble clef, 2 octives above middle c on viola looks like this is treble.
_o (a note lower than that)

Thanks for the help both of you :D

In the end I decided that having a viola playing in the 2nd octave above middle C was waaaaaay too high and moved it down to the octave just above middle C which seemed fairly normal.

I can't actually remember which clef I used (probably treble) but my music teacher seemed happy so I guess it was fine :D

Thanks again for the help :D

xXx

Hey, I agree, you should use the treble clef for that, and it would just tell the viola player to play in the next position.
