Hi everyone, Im trying to understand exactly the relationship between different instruments and where they sit in relation to each other. Can anyone help us fill in the chart below. Im using c in the treble clef C5 as the piano reference point and then pressing c on each instrument and trying to work out or corrolate its position on the piano, have I got the clarinets right, I have no idea yet really where the saxes sit but would appreciate any feedback
Thanks Steve

Thanks keith, I understand that bit but here comes the dilemma


Any Bb on the piano is a C on clarinet/trumpet/soprano and tenor sax

" is the Bb above or below the piano c is it in the same octave or is it in a different octave"

Any Eb on the piano is an C on the alto and baritone saxes

"same again"

Im trying to explain it and organise examples for my kids, but if I cant even define them then how can I possibly explain it
