Transpose by the Octave


On the examination paper, you may find a question which asked you to transpose a melody up or down by the octave.

Although transposition by the octave is relatively easy, it is also easy to make a mistake. The transposition could end up with the melody moved up or down by two octaves.
I have also seen the transposition moved from the Treble Clef to Bass, or visa versa, and amazingly ending at the same pitch. The notes look so different once written on the other clef, so you need to take extra care.

You will find examples which will help you, in the music theory lesson book, which you will see below. Make sure your transposition really is one octave.
