Just wondered if anyone has any tips for transposition or score reading of four staves?
Practice, practice, practice. If its for a RCO diploma, practice, practice, practice!! I have perfect pitch, so I find the transposition quite hard (eyes see D, ears hear a D, but I can tell no one has any sympathyy for those with PP), but the four stave stuff, there's quite a bit available from the RCO to practice. AGain, if its for the RCO, there is always a trap (ie parts that overlap) somewhere near the end of a line/start of next line.
Best of luck!
