May one begin with a blank page?

Postby efisaacs » Fri Jul 19, 2019 1:11 pm

Hello! I have notated a three-page song, voice and piano. Its refrain occupies the whole of the last page. It will print out on two sheets of paper. Those offer four sides for printing. It will help the pianist if the first side could be blank, or just a title. That way, the refrain will be on the last side. An easier page turn. Could this be done? Please tell me if you know.

It most certainly can be done and often is. Normally one would then number the first page with music ‘2’ thus keeping to the usual practice of having odd-numbered pages on the right.

Print it one-sided.

Or do it as three, single sided pages, and tape the last one to the second, as a fold out. No page turns at all.
