E flat Instrument Transposing Tutorial
Written C sounds the key.
Written = Printed = Transposed
Sounding = Actual = Concert
Alto and Baritone Saxophones are in E flat.
As usual, the written note is above the sounding note.
For the alto sax, written to sound is a M6 down.
For the bari sax, written to sound is a M6 plus an octave down.
Bari sax written pitches occupy the same lines and spaces in the treble clef as the sounding pitches in the bass clef.
By transposing an octave, the bari sax treble/bass clef method can be used with the alto sax.
