I can name that key in one note! B! What do I win???
Hay everyone! It doesn't get any easier than this. GREAT WAY TO STATE THIS! I have used this approach for years and it is so successful and easy, that I have a difficult time now reading Bb parts!
We used to call it the old "1+2" rule. I haven't had to do it in a while though. Where's my hymnal??
I have perfect pitch and the transposed parts always screwed me up so I had to "unlearn" the names of the notes and THAT was the confusing part.
But for teaching - "1+2"!! Nice - I'm stealing that.
THIEF, THIEF, HELP!!! POLICE, POLICE !!! My teacher taught me that long ago (since he was teaching trumpeters, he HAD to keep it as simple as possible ). It' so simple, even kingtrumpet can get it!!
Not sure how the perfect pitch would screw you up when the pitch concert, not Bb trumpet pitch, so wouldn't your perfect pitch know what the concert key is at all times regardless?
I have perfect pitch but never spent the time (work) to identify the notes with the tones when I read the note. When some folks see the note on the page they also hear the note in their head. You can play the note for me and I can tell you what note it is. I've never worked on the former part. Hope that makes sense.
I would love to say it helps but unfortunately it doesn't. That's OK, as long as it makes sense to someone.
