About "Minuet in G Major":
"Minuet in G Major" is probably one of the most famous Minuet pieces for piano and other keyboard instruments. It was composed by a German composer, Christian Petzold (1677 – 1733). It was thought to be composed by Johann Sebastian Bach for a long time until 1970. However, now we know that the work was created by Petzold. "Minuet in G Major" is one of the pieces in the collection called "Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach," which consists of many pieces presented by several different composers to J. S. Bach's 2nd wife, Anna Magdalena. There are only a few surviving works by Petzold left, and this one is one of few by him. The melody of this "Minuet in G Major" was used in the pop music "A Lover's Concerto," by the group The Toys, and many other medias such as films.

Tips for playing Level 4 "Minuet in G Major":
This Level 4 "Minuet in G Major" is in the original form written by Petzold. And it's at an intermediate level (Level 4). To make this piece performed smoothly, please work on each transition including repeats. A few fingering numbers provided are useful hints to create the smooth transitions as well. Usually in baroque music scores, one does not see any staccato or tenuto signs. But we used them to guide players when to hold longer and when to detach the note.
