Hiring A Music Arranger


Hiring an arranger

  • Ask potential arrangers for references from past clients and check them
  • Does the arranger have experience with your style of music?
  • The arranger should be working with notation software, not hand-written. Ask.
  • Ask for audio samples of his/her arrangements
  • Cost? Most arrangers charge by the hour. $50/hour is an average rate. Most rhythm charts and lead sheets can be done within an hour.

Why singers need charts for their musicians

Leads sheets or rhythm charts-what’s best for you?
