How do you transpose a tune UP a sixth for alto sax? When I transpose to the alto key it comes out an octave too low.

You must transpose up 9 halftones for your sax, and here in Wikifonia you have only 6 up and 6 down.

So you may select -3 to get the right key, but you must play one octave upper than written.
