I got my end of year Theory exam tomorrow and I'm all fine with it except transposing. We have to transpose a melody from C Major to Bb so does that basically mean I need to move the notes a step and a half up on the stave?


Thanks

If you're going from C to Bb, that means you are transposing down a step.

Good catch, Hockeyplayer!

I'm no theory expert, but wouldn't it be one step down? Either way, your key signature will change. I'll shut up now at the risk of being horribly wrong.
Oh yeah.

if your melody is in C major, and you need to transpose it to Bb major, just drop everything a major second.
