The soprano, alto, or tenor clef.
- ‘The middle line on the C clef is also known as middle C.’
- ‘Today, C clefs are rarely used in vocal and choral music because the treble and bass clefs can be used for the general ranges of high and low notes, respectively.’
- ‘Instruments with ranges that do not fall comfortably into either bass or treble clef may use a C clef or may be transposing instruments.’
- ‘For some teen and adult students of an abstract bent, you might mention C clefs, and even treble and bass clefs which move around and why.’
- ‘The C clefs tend to be used much less commonly, especially in jazz, although the tenor clef is sometimes read by trombonists.’
