At present there is a lack of music for the horn player who wishes to advance from beginning study to more difficult repertoire. This collection of fourteen pieces has been created to fit into this gap and to provide the horn player with an opportunity to develop necessary skills for advancing, including finger technique, increased range, ornamentation, and musicality. The pieces in the collection are transcribed from the da capo arias of the operas and oratorios of George Frideric Handel, according to specific criteria, and they have been edited in ways that may interest, aid, and motivate the advancing player. There are certain learning outcomes and planned goals for the études, and it is hoped that both teachers and players will find them to be of great value.
