Transposing – To change the pitch of a musical piece up or down while keeping the space between the notes the same
To remember what transpose means, use the following mnemonic:
Transport your posies (transpose) to the window display you can move them up or down, but keep the space between them the same.
If you had to transpose a key like C Major 3 semitones up, it would look like the following on sheet music.
Transpose this 3 semitones up.
(Note: To work these out use transporting charts or a piano)
Which is Eb Major.
