Turn Around Times
The turn-around time for custom projects is 2 to 4 weeks from the time I receive your deposit and music. Most clients pay the required deposit online using any major credit card and email the music to me as a PDF attachment. Music received without a deposit will be dated but not put in my work "cue". I will email you as soon as possible to request your deposit. However, because I'm generally quite busy, I may not get around to notifying you for a week or so. Therefore, to avoid a week or two delay in getting in my work "cue", make sure you pay your deposit online with any major credit card or mail a check when you send your music.
The "custom" project turn-around time of 2 to 4 weeks is occasionally not available because of heavy influxes of work. If you need your custom trax (or arrangements) in 4 weeks or less, call me for the current turn-around time. I offer a "rush" service in which I drop everything I'm doing to immediately start on your project. I charge double the price for this service as it puts a tremendous strain on me in getting your project finished AND still getting other client's projects finished in the time promised.
The minimum $100 fee and the 2 to 4 week turn-around time is generally based upon a simple rhythm song (no rubato phrasing), no more than 2.5 minutes in length, clearly written or printed, with no note or lyric mistakes to correct, or special "interp" required. Correcting music takes more time, and you may be charged for me "fixing things."
I will provide my own rubato interpretation of a ballad if not provided by the client. You can send special "interp" via email (mp3), however I actually prefer doing my own interpretive plan.
Phone or email quotes are only approximate until I review your music.
