From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A copyist is a person who makes written copies. The term's modern use is almost entirely confined to music copyists, who are employed by the music industry to produce parts for individual musicians from an orchestral score or composer's manuscript. In the past, copyists worked by hand, though today the work is generally done using one of a number of proprietary specialist software packages (one of which is called Copyist); each approach requires a significant understanding of musical notation, music theory, and strong attention to detail.
