Welcome, readers, to another installment of Rock Keyboards! This month I wanted to give you a few tips to add some brass and winds to your band’s sound. The main challenge in horn writing is that some of them are transposing instruments. This means that they are written at a different pitch than the one they sound on. Our horn section for this example with be a very common one; trumpet, tenor sax, and trombone.

Trombone is written as it sounds with no transposition. Trumpet is written a major 2nd above where it sounds and tenor sax which is written a minor 9th higher. On your own you should do a little research about the ranges of the different instruments because it's very common for beginning arrangers to write out of the range of an instrument. There are also horn specific notations, like accents and sforzandos that you should investigate. This little tutorial will get you started, though.
