The Minuet in C is a keyboard work, K. 1f, written by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in December1761 or January 1762 in Salzburg. It is part of a group of keyboard works found in Nannerl's Music Book. An extremely short piece (just 30 seconds long), it was likely notated by his father, Leopold Mozart, since Wolfgang was six years old at the time.

It was written for the harpsichord and is hence usually performed on the harpsichord, though other keyboard instruments may be used. This minuet is in Mozart's first collection of works. As a minuet it is relatively fast in 3/4 time. It is, unlike Minuet in F far less introduced by the baroque style.

It is largely constructed of phrases which are repeated: every two bars is announced by a descending fifth, after which 4 chords are played, a tune is constructed within this restraint. Each phrase is 8 bars long. A two part harmony, it comprises of 3 sections: the initial, contrastring trio, and reprise of the original. It was, in Köchel's first catalogue listed as K. 1 along with Minuet in G, K. 1e.
