It has been asserted that no book has ever been published without typographical errors. This one is no exception! I’m grateful to my army of editors (read: readers) who point them out so they can be corrected in future printings. Here are the ones I’ve received so far, all courtesy of one particularly alert individual, whose initials are B. W.

  • Page 13, second line of second paragraph: the word it’s should not have an apostrophe.
  • Page 42, top line, 3rd beat of second measure should be G, G#, A.
  • Page 22: The whole notes in the last three lines should be labeled 8vb. This is more a clarification than a correction, as my use of the symbol 8vb followed by three dots (8vb…) indicates that it applies from that point forward.
