How to put a price on music…

April 9, 2011

Recently I was asked how much to charge per hour for private individualized instruction in percussion instruments and music. I searched various resources in order to put a “price” on my services, which I thought to be appropriate.

How are we, musicians, supposed to respond when someone asks us our fee? In this case I think it takes a bit of convincing for others to realize that this service, skill, or performance is a life-long endeavor. Many musicians have spent years learning the art of music and it has come at a great cost. How then do we move forward and piece together a living?
