Prices may vary depending on the organization commissioning piece, specific requests, and other factors. Contact me to fill out the commissioning form and for a final price tag.

Sample recordings of my existing works can be found at my “Works” page.

* The first hour of any accompaniment, performance, and ensemble/orchestral services will not be pro-rated; after one hour the price may be pro-rated. The actual hourly rate will be determined based on the difficulty of repertoire, ease of access to the sheet music (if necessary), and the length and location of rehearsal.  Contact me to be absolutely sure of the hourly pricing.

N. B. Prices do not include transportation fees. Prices subject to change. I reserve the right to change the prices for special or extreme circumstances. All fees expected at the end of the hire unless special arrangements approved; late payments may result in an extra late fee.

Note that Paypal payments include an extra $2 surcharge to offset the PayPal fee.

Also note that a cancellation must be made at least 24 hours in advance to receive a refund. However, it may be possible to reschedule the appointment for little or no extra cost depending on the reason for such a cancellation.
