errata studiesrrata studies for the wind band conductor

We have all encountered a common frustration in even our best attempts at preparing for a performance: mistakes. We find them in the melody, harmony, rhythm, articulation--virtually in every aspect of our performances. Some are human errors and are a natural part of the music-making experience, while others will be found in the printed music itself, usually discovered during the final rehearsal!

Through careful study of multiple editions of the pieces and consideration of the part in question to the work as a whole, Dr. Topolewski has developed the Errata Series to provide an objective list of errors and inconsistencies found in and between the score and parts.
