when you do bass clef passages say the note as u play it...for instance ABCA
i read somewhere before that you also play the violin..same here, maybe its because the violin is always in the treble clef so u do that more.
good luck!!

My advice is sightread lots of pieces with bass clefs.  Keep practicing and in time, the notes will come naturally.

Lea,

Since you play the violin, you would have become very accustomed to sight reading and playing in the treble clef.  I guess the only way to improve with bass clef is practice.  Same with your questions about alto and tenor clef.
