Re: transposition This is the first way I teach transposition. BUT it is not so useful for more contemporary or chromatic pieces. I use various methods of transposition (clef, key change, intervalic) but the aim is to get each so that you don't actually have to think about transposing, you just do it. That's the secret. The more you do it, the better you get at it. I find this to be especially true when you are doing this in a group situation. The temptation to stop when you make a mistake is removed - you HAVE to keep going. Great advice. Maurice Murphy used to practice his transposition skills with hymn tunes. A different transposition every day. Simple tunes, being read in different keys. You become accustomed to playing notes that are not what you are reading.
