My standard pricing is anywhere from $35-75 an hour depending on the scope and duration of the entire project.
The typical process working with a new customer involves several meetings to understand the overall goal and soundscape that the customer is trying to achieve. Then I break down the recording/production process into several steps for them, with quality checks along the way (rough mixes, pre-production notes, etc.) to make sure that the customer is happy with the sessions or progress. I always allow their voice to be heard and never try to always have them go with my ideas or opinions.
I have an Electrical Engineering Degree, and am also Six Sigma certified. This education has allowed me to be very methodical and solve problems quickly, which arise in studio environments quite often. It has also allowed me to manage time and client budgets as well.
