sorry, you will need to learn bass or treble. Shile some instruments use different clefs, it is rare and found almost exclusively in symphonic writing.

Don't worry about it. You may want to choose a low instrument as they have fewer notes and this will relieve some of the stress of learning a new clef and instrument at the same time.
