Well, first of all you need to know what octave you`re working in. Then you need to know how to read the notes in both clefs. When transposing from bass to treble you take the notes and write them in the treble clef ledger lines below the staff, depending on what octave you`re in the more ledger lines you need. It`s almost the same as with transposing from the treble clef to the bass clef but the ledger lines will above the staff instead of below it, again it depends on the octave you`re in on how far up you need to go. If you ask me, it`s way to confusing to do so why not just leave them in the clefs they are already in?

can you explain it more clearly like in lamins terms.are you trying to say that all you do is move the note(lets say D in treble) to the D of bass clef?? Or like a line down? something like that?

Ok take F for example. In the treble clef its in the first space. When you transpose it to the bass clef it`s two ledger lines up on the space. So basically thats what you do for all the other notes.

thank you, so how about flats and sharps, lets say B flat major, where the heck would that be(if it was already in treble clef) on bass clef? Also, who are you? what do you play and for how long? what dose M.A. stand for? just carious.

I`m a 16 year old female high school student who lives in Canada. I`ve been playing piano for 9 years, flute for 5, saxophone for 2 and clarinet for about a year now. I`ve been playing in marching band for about 3 years and concert band for a little over a year. M.A. are my initionals for my first and last name. Ok so now onto your question, if you talking about key signatures, then the two flats in B-flat major are B and E. In the bass clef, the B-flat is on the second line from the bottom of the staff, and the E-flat is in the 3rd line from the bottom.

thanks, I was trying to transpose my tenor sax melody into bass clef so i could play it on trombone. wow, I`m impressed with knowledge of music theory. I`ve played clarinet for five years and I still haven`t picked up(learned) this stuff yet. I`m sixteen too living in southern California. I played second tenor in my highschool jazz band until our lead trombone left to a music school. Now I have to fill in her place. But the trombone melody is so boring. so I wanted to rewrite some of my old sax melody into bass clef so it would`nt be so boring. by the way, what kind of marching band events dose your hichschool par-take in. I`ve been to two different highshcools(which sucks) where one did feildshow competiton and the other did parades. i`m still curious.

Yes, I have done Jazz. I like it alot. I`ve been in my school`s Jazz band for the last two years. I have to say I don`t really like marching season cause its usually really hot where I live (Southwestern Ontario) in the summer. But this year it`s not too bad, I guess I like Symphony season better. I don`t really understand your question, are you talking about the note G or the key signature?

the note, by the way do you plan to play professionally someday? `cause since you like symthony better, I assume you aren`t a bandgeek(those guys who play in highschool then quit as soon as they graduate). I despise those kind of musicians, `cause I know a bunch of them. the true musican plays their entire life. oh yeah and how big is your marching band?

The note G when its on the second line in the treble clef, is on the third ledger line up in the bass clef. Yes, I do plan to play music professionally someday, even though my parents don`t want me to. They say there`s no money in it. They want me to be a lawyer instead, but I`m not gonna be one. My marching band has 67 people in it. Which is a fair size around here, I don`t know what its like where you live.

the G(in treble) on the second line is the same note as the bass clef G three ledger lines above the staff? So if I wanted to transpose tenor sax music then I would have to throw it down an octave lower then transpose it?
or something like that? the bands here range from anywhere from a twenty peice band to a seventy peice band. but damn, 67 is a lot of people. when i was a freshman, my highschool marching had about sixty people. then i moved, and the highschool band i`m in now has about twenty-five people. most of them are drummers, quite sad. three clarinets, three flutes, three altos, one tenor, one berry, and one tuba(me).the rest are drummers.
