how to transpose from C to Bb, why on earth do you need to ask how
to transpose from C to G ?!

Becuase when I do that it changes the key signature. I want the key signature to remain the same. I input in Concert C, transpose to the key of D for Trumpet. The First Trumpet part transposes to the key of D just fine. I would like to just copy/paste the first part into the second part. The second part I want to transpose also for Trumpet, also in the key of D, but a fourth lower. I was just hoping to be able to have Lily do that so I don't have to rewrite all the notes a fourth lower. If that's how it has to be done then so be it.

I'm not entirely sure I understand what you want, but I'm taking a stab at it. Here's an example of how to use the same notes in different transpositions.


\version "2.11.65"

notes =  { c d e f }

trumpetOne = \transpose c d' { \notes }
trumpetTwo = \transpose c g, { \trumpetOne }

\score {
  \new Staff <<
    \key d \major
    \context Voice = "upper" { \voiceOne \relative c' { \trumpetOne } }
    \context Voice = "lower" { \voiceTwo \relative c { \trumpetTwo } }
  \layout {}
