    We have been given a piece of music as a Sibelius file to play for a massed band but the tuba part is in bass clef but our tuba player only plays treble. Is there any easy way in Sib 5 to convert it to the treble clef?

    Thanks V. much.

    You'll have to create a new instrument which is Bass in Eb and / or Bass in Bb then copy the entire tuba part onto there.

    You can change it on the part - highlight the whole part press Cntl/Shift/Alt and I and you get a dialogue box to change instrument. Select EEb or BBb Bass as required - make sure that you also select transposing score (make sure the key changes between BC and TC).
    If you have any problems email me the file and I'll sort it for you

    Surely, the updates should've solved that?

    Sorry to be late in reply... Thanks for your replies, Andrew's method worked a treat. We played it last night and the tuba part sounded just fine.

    Thanks again.
