A transposing instrument is an instrument that sounds in a lower or higher key than the written key. Common examples of these instruments are the B flat clarinet and trumpet and the Horn in F, When we say that an instrument is in B flat it means that we hear a B flat when a C is played. See the artciles Reading and Writing Music for Transposing Instruments for more information.
