Perhaps I see a glimmer...
You cite two instances: part in Bb treble and part in Eb treble
For part in Bb treble, you play down a major second. i.e., for a written c, you play BBb. That makes sense to me, since that is essentially what a Bb trumpet does - play the first leger line open/Bb. I still don't understand why you have to add 2 flats.
For part in Eb, you read the staff as if it were bass clef and play the first line down as E, which it is in bass clef. Once again, I don't understand why you add three flats.
I have used Noteworthy to transpose parts successfully, but I'd like to be able to sight read Bb treble clef music on my Mirafone eefer. Is there a trick to that, or should I just relearn the scales for treble clef?
