praysforluna: B Flat Side to Sound Like a Trumpet?

Can someone please tell me the notes for Concert B Flat Major scale on the B Flat side of the horn so it's like a trumpet? It would also be greatly appreciated if you could give me the notes in Concert C as well. Please and Thank you!

Edit: Problem solved! Thank you all for your answers!

Thank you! But now I'm only more confused (totally my fault not yours)! XD I have to play Bb major scale for a test but my teacher wants me to do it on the Bb side so that I'll be playing the same notes as the trumpets! He said I would start on middle C and end on C. He gave me new fingerings but on the tuner I keep skipping from my starting note F (on the tuner, middle C on page) to A (E on the page) so I'm just trying to figure out what I should be playing to match the trumpets! @_@ *is so confused*

Concert Bb scale fingering on Bb horn:


Does that make sense for you? You should be starting on a concert Bb, which is normally your notated F, but in the key of Bb (which is the key you're switching to, when you use the thumb trigger) it's C. Sounds like your teacher used confusing wording. Let me know if I need to clarify any of this. :)

X( My notes seem all wrong! On the tuner it either stays the same note or if I push a little bit it jumps automatically a few notes up! I give up! I'll just talk to my teacher on Monday! Thank you for your help anyways!
