Thread: Learning Tenor Clef and finding material to practice on

  1. #21
    I played accordion and piano before I started learning euphonium; this thread is the first I've ever heard of clef differentiation being a problem while playing piano.

    All very interesting....
    i think I'm like Dave
    -i read treble
    -tenor is read as treble but with two sharpes added / two flats taken away
    -bass I learnt to read by seeing where the treble clef notes are and again with two sharpes added / two flats taken away
    accidentals aren't a problem you just get used to it. In my youth I remember just getting used to bass clef in wind band playing and not having to think about it. But now just playing in brass bands bass clef is a rare thing i only see if asked to play bass trombone.
    CONFESSION: Bass trombone is my favourite instrument! I love the sound and versatility of it......but the parts are lousy!
    Current Euphs:
    Besson Prestige (German)
    York Eminence
    Boosey & Hawkes Sovereign (Round Stamp/ Globe)
    Boosey & Hawkes Imperial
    Plus an attic of old classics in various states of repair!

    Previous Euphs:

    Geneva Symphony
    Wilson 2900 with Eminence leadpipe
    Sterling Virtuoso (300 mm heavy red brass bell)
    Cortios 167 II

    'Gob Iron': Doug Elliott Euph 105 I 9s (plus a few others!)

    I had totally forgotten about this -- a useful tool for learning tenor clef is David Vining's Rangesongs for Euphonium. He switches to tenor clef in the higher ranges, and they aren't technically difficult.
