First Duet - Secondo
(Second Part)

Can you play the same exercise in other keys? Remember how we changed our hand position and changed the key when we played "Up and Down the Hills"?

When we change the key of a song, we say we transpose the song.
Transpose this song to the major keys of G, F, D, B Flat, A, and E Flat.
