Hi there I am taking music theory this year at school, hard ass class...

I was wondering if anyone could tell me the keys of all the instruments they can think of.

For Example,(I don't even know if this is right)

1. Alto Saxaphone - Bb


Can anyone help me please?

French Horn - F
Bb Clarinet - Bb
A Clarinet - A
Bass Clarinet - Bb
Trumpet - Bb
Viola - A

Here are a few more. If you are just starting theory though, you shouldn't get into instrument transposition for a while I'd think.

EDIT: Alto Sax is in A by the way.

Nope, sorry, wrong.
Alto sax is in Eb, soprano & tenor are in Bb, and baritone is in Eb.
Flute, piccolo, tuba, bass clef baritone, euphonium, and trombone are in C.
Treble clef baritone is in Bb.
