Practice transposing the above excerpt from the Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 565 by J.S. Bach major 2nd upward to the key of e minor this way:
1. Right hand alone
2. Left hand alone
3. Pedals alone
4. Both hands together
5. Right hand and pedals together
6. Left hand and pedals together
7. All staves combined with both hands and pedals
Take a slow tempo, aim for detached articulate legato touch and 3 correct repetitions in a row in each step.
Post time and the number of repetitions to comments.
