Not sure if this is the right section to ask this question, but I figured it's worth a shot. How many of you guys make money composing music?
I just do it for fun for now, but I thought it would be a fun idea to charge bands to add an orchestra section to their songs. I'm pretty clueless on how much people might be willing to pay for this kind of service, so I wanted to get an idea of what kind of price range I should be able to expect with this type of work (assuming I got really good at it).
My initial thoughts are that I should charge about $200 for a standard 3-4 minute song. Is this a completely ridiculous price? or is it too low?
Anybody do anything like this?
Here's an example of a song I'm working on right now so you can get an idea of what I'm talking about. I'm doing the string section for it (for free, to build up my resume). It's unfinished, but enough to get the idea.
