Wanted to know the best way to learn properly on how to transpose...
Take a look at the Dave Liebman method, Ive seen a video I suppose it would be available on his sight. When you done you really know the stuff
There are many different methods, so I am not sure that it is possible to specify one.
If you do not transpose at all, the best way is to get a hymnbook and just start doing it. I know of no collection of simple well known melodies that is more comprehensive or better suited!
You play everything one tone up and add 2 sharps to the key signature (or subtract 2 flats...)
You do not need any special exercizes for that and the results come fast. Once you get comfortable, you can start transposing standard etudes (Arban, Schlossberg, Kopprasch, Concone......).
The best way is to start TODAY. Just jump in with both feet. After a couple of weeks, the hymnbook should be NO PROBLEM!
Sorry its early for me an dI read transcribe, not transpose
you do make a good point though. If you transcribe, you reach a point where it is more work to write the music first and out of economy learn to transpose!
It where I started.
Practice, practice, practice.
I cheat. When I orchestrate I use my Finale in concert pitch. Afterwards a couple of clicks and it's done for me.
dmh... its people like you that make me SICK. (haha... I do the same thing )
Yes, it's the epitamy of laziness!
it might take some time, but cleff transposition works really well for me. we were force fed it at school, but it helped down the road.
