for Bb you move your thumb up to the one where it also pushes down the second key. so you play a normal B but move your thumb up. i hope that makes sense!!
to play a C# you play a usual C but take your thumb right off.
for both of these you can keep you little finger on the Eb key. tell me how you get on!
