The 6 pieces in this volume come from a cycle (including “En forêt” and “Imagerie enfantine") written for young harp ists, particularly pupils at around grade V to VI level (equivalent to five to six years of study); the two other albums are suitable for grades I to IV.

Obviously these levels are somewhat arbitrary, and two students working on the same grade will not necessarily be of the same ability.

From a technical point of view, these pieces are placed in progressive order. The composer has also made use of highly melodic phrases in order to encourage the pupil’s musicality while improving technique. It is technique after all that will enable the pupil to realise his or her musicianship.

For those playing a Celtic harp, the accidentals to be obtained by moving the levers with the left hand are given in brackets in the bass clef staff (although sometimes treble clef is used for the higher notes). The left hand is given sufficient pause in playing to move each lever without disturbing the flow of the music.
