    Hi.

    Sight-reading in some clefs might be tricky and needs practice. C clefs in particular...

    In these videos, I tried to simplify the world of clefs, aiming to answer typical questions such as what clefs are and why they are important, how to write them and what is the differerence between them, how to read confidently in all the clefs.

    Enjoy it!

    Some bassoon scores use the treble clef, so bassoonists must read it and composers can write it. If writing up to conventional F, the tenor clef might still suffice with 4 ledgers, but a bassoon can play higher.

    I too have difficulties with the tenor clef, but the investment in music is so huge that there is no way to get rid of the past. So, just go on reading the tenor clef like a bass clef with two lines difference.

    One damn good reason for bassoonists to read the treble clef is to steal cello music. Even if playing the high notes an octave lower, the bassoonist must read them, and they are naturally in treble clef, as the cello has more range upwards.
