Default How to transpose

To Transpose from Concert Pitch to Alto Sax, you have to play a Minor Third (or 3 half steps) lower on the Alto. It sounds harder than it really is. If a middle C on Piano is an A on Alto, than the interval is the next space down on paper. The D on Piano would be a B on Alto, which is the line below for Alto. The transposition for Alto will always be the next line or space down on the music staff, with a total of 3 half steps between them. When counting half steps, you count each relationship or interval. Three half steps, starting from the Concert C would be - C to B, B to Bb, Bb to A = 3 half steps. Start on Concert D and 3 half steps are counted - D to C#, C# to C natural, C to B = 3 half steps.
