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.
