modulation

Hi, if anyone takes music gcse could I get some help modulating from f# major to d# minor? I'm currently writing a 32 bar free composition for my mocks.
I tried posting this in the specific forum but still no replies and im pressed for time so any help appreciated :smile:
I can provide screenshots of what I have so far if needed.

I did GCSE music, I may be able to help but I don't think I used any sort of modulation in my composition. (I did mine in C minor)
my teacher always says 'modulation means marks' so I think she'd be a bit ticked off if I just didn't 😅
do you need screenshots? I've not actually written up to the part where I'm going to modulate but if you want to take a look then sure

I’ve just submitted my compositions for A level so I’m hoping I can be of some use. D# minor is a good shout in that it’s the relative minor so you should be pretty much safe with anything. If you’re trying to modulate quickly then doing a nice perfect cadence in F# major to finish it off and then starting with a chord I in D# minor in the next bar would sound good! Otherwise, you can use pivot chords and find a nice chord in both keys (i in D# minor as vi in F# major for example) but depending on your composition this may be harder. Hope this helps!!
