Which OS do you use?  How do you compile with LilyPond?

Under Windows you should have a  .log  file, IIRC.
Look within the repertory for a text file called  your_file_name.log
(the same name as you  .ly  file).

Under GNU/Linux if you compile within a terminal, the errors appears
in the terminal too.
If you use a dedicated text editor allowing you to compile within this
editor, then it should also have a buffer/terminal showing the errors
when compiling.

Cheers,
Xavier
