Recently, I've gotten interested in learning how to transpose by sight. From what I've gathered, the most common methods have been to do by interval/position/ear.
One method that looks appealing to me is to change the clef:http://derekremes.com/wp-content/uploads/Transposition%20by%20Changing%20Clef_by%20Derek%20Remes.pdf
It would basically involve learning 6 different grand staff positions and then juggling around the key signatures.
Has anyone trained themselves to do this before?
Obviously this would be a long term project, but not unfeasible.
What interval shifts are the most useful to learn or what are the easiest?
I was thinking of first learning the ones in which I already know at least half of the staff:
Up 3rd/Down 6th (Baritone - Bass GS)
Up 6th/Down 3rd (Treble - Soprano)
Being able going up and down a 3rd may also be the most useful when accompanying singers.
Next wold be these two since I would already know the Baritone and Soprano clefs:
Up 4th/Down 5th (Soprano - Mezzo Soprano)
Up 5/Down 4th (Tenor - Baritone)
Up 2nd/Down 7th (Mezzo Soprano - Alto Grand Staff)
Up 7th/Down 2nd (Alto - Tenor)
