Instrument Transposition Chart

I have made far too many errors when transposing our music for the horn players in the band. Tenor sax wants Bb charts and baritone sax wants Eb charts. I always seem to mess up the Eb charts so here's a handy transposition chart I've made for myself which some of you may find useful.

Add this page to your bookmarks or print it so you'll always have it handy when you need it.
