The Minuet in G major is a keyboard piece included in the 1725 Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach.

The notebook in question, which belonged to Johann Sebastian Bach's second wife Anna Magdalena, is a compilation of music by various composers of the late 17th and early 18th century, including François Couperin, Georg Böhm, Johann Sebastian Bach himself and possibly some of his sons (e.g. Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach). Most of the entries in the 1725 notebook were made by Anna Magdalena herself, and a few were contributed by Johann Sebastian and various friends of the Bach family. Only a few composers are.    Download this sheet!

So realistically speaking, once you are done reading the basics, all you have to do is practice the language as much as you can.
