On page 11 of Alto book 1, exercise #45 there seem to be an error in that the first measure starts with a B that hasn’t previously been introduced. While I know the fingering for B and could just play it as written, I suspect that it really wants me to play something else, possibly a C, given that all of the other measures contains C,D,E, and F.
Anybody else encountered that?

… and while we’re here, I have a student in his 70s who’s never studied music before that I’m teaching alto to. I recorded and posted on SoundCloud a 14th Century duet that’s in the back of your book (Edi beo thu Hevene Quene – Page 41, Exercise 187.) It’s at about 35 bpm as he’s struggling with finger dexterity and timing, but you might find it interesting for an early duet experience. I’ll likely post it faster when he’s ready. If you’re interested….
Interesting. Your photo attachments show a C, but in my copy it shows a B — looks like you have a corrected version, or I have a newly mistaken version. C seemed to fit the expected pattern the best, so I’ve been playing C there.
