“The band always breathes a sigh of relief when we see that name at the top of the chart”

Clarity, Craftsmanship & Simplicity
Almost every single day of the year, one of my arrangements gets performed by a guest entertainer or a production cast on a ship somewhere in the world. That's a fact I'm very proud of.
Most entertainers only have about an hour's rehearsal before their show, so the charts for the band need to be accurate, easy to sightread and must sound great. Every singer has their own style so every arrangement is different. That's where an arranger comes in.
I'm also guest entertainer myself, with three shows in different genres, all with full band. Most singers come to me for original arrangements, exclusively for their show, and together we figure out what you need and how we're going to get there. And I LOVE that process!
How much does arranging cost?
I charge a fixed fee per song. For a simple song for a 7-piece band and singer: $250 USD
- A consultation to figure out keys, style, instrumentation, exactly what you need etc
- The completed arrangements as PDF files
- Any edits required
- A rehearsal mp3 of the charts
- Exclusive rights to your arrangement
The industry standard of charging per bar/measure of an arrangement is unfair. Some songs have repeated sections, others are very long but simple. So my per-song, upfront fee is much clearer. My rates are highly competitive, but bear in mind the fee will go up a little for:
- Medleys and mash-ups
- Working on original songs
- Larger ensembles
Get in touch and we can have a no-obligation chat about what you need to make your show incredible.
Everything is Possible!
