Not all of the pieces in this collection were specifically composed as etudes, but they share the common characteristic of giving a good technique workout on a specific discipline while still remaining rewarding to play and listen to.

Some of them are a familiar part of study repertoire but many will be new to the harp world either as original compositions or transcriptions from other instruments. All provide exercise in the standard classical figures and a good number are also suitable as performance pieces.

They will be of use to concert and Celtic harp players alike as they do not require pedals or a range exceeding 34 strings.
