My marching music calls for straight eighth notes for 5 measures of alternating between the Eb on the 4th space on the staff and the Bb on the 3rd line in the staff and then F on the 5th line on back to the Bb. It then goes back to Eb Bb and continues (F Bb Eb Bb F Bb Eb Bb, etc.) What are the best keys to use to make these transitions?

I am on an alto Yamaha YAS-200AD by the way.

You might consider keeping the low Eb key open with the 1+1 fingering for the Bb if the 8th notes are in a fast tempo. Depending on your skill level you can darn near trill both intervals (Eb-Bb and F-Bb) with the aforementioned fingering.
