Saxophone Transposition in a Nutshell

by Neal

Tenor and soprano saxophones are in Bb.  Alto and bari saxophones are in Eb.  Let me know if you have questions.  This diagram has what you basically need to do.

Tenor/soprano notes are a whole step above concert pitch notes

Alto/bari notes are a minor third below concert pitch notes.

Tenor/soprano notes are a perfect fifth above alto/bari notes. Alto/bari notes are a perfect fourth above tenor/soprano notes.
