- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Price is different depending on the ensemble size. Solo vs duo vs etc. If you want dancing, the ensemble size will need to be at least a trio (though I often have dancers even when solo). If you want me as a regular performer .. example every 2nd Thursday of each month, I offer a discounted price.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I explain what type of music I play and what formats I can play in. Formats meaning what size ensembles, what instrumentations and what genres. If that sounds good to the customer, we work on a price based on the desired format. Depending on when the gig is, we can discuss any special requests. A good rule is for every month away the gig is, that about how many new songs I can learn for you.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Years of guitar and piano lessons as well as vocal coaching.
