Melody Line: Alto Clef Instrument

Melody Line versions provide the opportunity for singers and players to use the music as solos for preludes, offertories or other musical moments. They are also useful for leading and supporting congregational singing. Consider using this feature as a way of engaging children or young people who are studying a musical instrument.

The primary instrument which uses the Alto Clef is the Viola. The rich, deep sound of the Viola can lend fine support to congregational song in addition to its solo potential.

Occasionally English Horn, Trombone or Bassoon players encounter printed music in the Alto Clef. This is normally done to avoid deep ledger lines.
