The method is the same described in Transposition:

- What interval?: I must play all an ascending perfect fifth upper.
- Initial key?: Here the key is F Major
- New key?: Adding an ascending perfect fifth to F Major produce C Major
- Key Signature Identification?: The new key signature for C Major is neutral (no key signature)
- Which clef to use (sight-reading)?: Here you must read the music score with a baritone clef
