Someone has asked me to take their MIDI mockup and notate in full score for orchestra. I was curious what is a reasonable price to charge for this type of service? Should I include extracting parts in this fee or is that an extra service? I would like some guidance from those who are more experienced in the business end than I am.
I am thinking they pay half the amount at the start of the project and the rest upon delivery of the full score.
I would like to turn this project into the composer considering me as their preferred orchestrator for future gigs so I don't want to overprice myself (nor underprice myself). I looked around for discussion threads on this topic but couldn't find much about orchestration so I apologize if this has already been covered.
