Custom Arrangement Deposit
Please click on the gold text to place your custom arrangement required deposit. The following are details regarding "custom" arrangements.
I do "custom" 4-part vocal arranging starting at a "base rate" of $250. Arrangements (including medleys) over 2.5 mins. duration or arrangements of more than 4 parts would be more. Please note that the fee for a 4-part arrangement with a duration of more than 2.5 mins. is calculated at $1.66 per second after the base 2.5 minutes @ $250. Arrangements with more than 4 parts will vary in cost, so please email me for a cost estimate. After the arrangement is completed, I will email it to you (as a PDF doc.) along with an invoice for the balance due (once the final duration of the arrangement is determined).
A sheet music "licensing" fee must be paid by you (the customer) to the publisher who owns the copyright to the song I arrange. I will supply the publisher contact information upon request. Songs in the "Public Domain" or original songs written (or co-written by me) don't have a publisher's licensing fee, but may incur a very small "per-copy" fee from me. The $250 base fee includes a very professional looking copy of the arrangement notated with "state of the art" Finale software... plus a very professional instrumentally played mp3 "full, balanced mix" demo of exactly how the arrangement should be sung,... even in the case of a ballad arrangement with rubato "interp."
On request, I can also provide part predominant, instrumentally played Learning Trax for $80 for a 4-part, 2.5 min. duration arrangement. Each additional part (over 4 parts) is a minimum of $6, depending on the length of the arrangement. All "extras" (extra parts, extra arrmt length, etc.) are always pro-rated, calculated from the base fee. As with vocal (or instr.) learning trax, the part is all by itself in the left speaker,... with the other parts being played in the right speaker.
The Instrumentally played learning trax are quite good... and shouldn't be equated with simple computer generated notation file audio, which rarely gives the listener the correct feel (a "swing" feel, for example) for the arrangement nor any rubato, ritard, or accellerando interpretation. In addition, computer generated sounds are typically less than appealing. The instrumental "sampled, high quality sounds "(recorded from real instruments) I use (acoustic grand piano, other electric piano sounds, sampled strings and sometimes even sampled drums (on tempo'd arrangements) give a richly textured, pleasantly "listenable" and "musical" sound, with the strings adding the necessary sustain when needed. Demos of these instrumentally played Learning trax are available. For custom VOCAL learning trax, please see "Custom Learning Trax."
If requested, I will give a 1-year exclusive for custom arrangements. I don't write arrangements with a "complete exclusive" since, in that case, I'd have to charge what commercial arrangers charge ($600 or $700) for the actual time I put into the arrangement. In the "barbershop world", this, of course, would be prohibitive.

Custom Vocal Learning Trax Deposit
Please click on the gold text to place your learning trax deposit. I am now ONLY recording vocal learning trax for my own custom arrangements. Uptunes minimum fee is $140 with a $100 deposit required. Ballads minimum fee is $160 with a $100 deposit required.
Professionally recorded vocal learning trax are recorded by my daughter, Ashley Wright, Lead of 2nd place International "Speed of Sound" quartet). Alex Stephens, gold medal Tenor with the youthful Westminster Chorus in 2007, is recording the men's learning trax. If you want to place an order for custom learning trax, and pay the required deposit, please click on the appropriate GOLD text below.
Learning Trax Feature...
1. Vocals digitally recorded: Balanced mix plus part predominant part mixes.
2. Perfect note accuracy (using Melodyne software).
3. All Learning Trax delivered via the internet as mp3 audio files.
4. Fun to listen to - just ask: Masters of Harmony, Rich Tones, Ramapo Valley, Alexandria Harmonizers Houston Horizons, Toast Of Tampa, SPEB's AIC, Coronet Club. Nightlife Quartet......
5. Two to four week turn-around time per song (see NOTE at bottom of the page).
My rates are: $140 for an all-tempo'd, 4-part, 2.5 min. duration song.... and $160 for ballads, again for a 4-part, 2.5 min. duration song. Songs over 2.5 minutes are pro-rated on a per-second cost calculated from the base rate (either $140... or $160) divided by 150 seconds (2.5 mins). Regarding more than 4 part arrmts, email me for cost estimate. If you choose to purchase the $30 (and up) instrumentally played trax (see "custom arrangements"), and decide later to order VOCAL learning trax, your additional cost is only the difference between the normal vocal learning trax fee above and the $30 instrumentally played fee you already paid.
Rhythm Songs: $140... and up (depending on the duration of the arrangement) (Minimum $100 deposit required with order)
Ballads: $160... and up (depending on the duration of the arrangement) (Minimum $100 deposit required)

Custom "Instrumental Accompaniment Trax" for your arrangements - $100 and up (many short demos available)
NOTE: The turn-around time mentioned above is occasionally not available because of heavy influxes of work. Please ask for the current turn-around time. The minimum $140 fee and the 2 - 4 week turn-around time is 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. Time spent to make corrections or to make the song legible for me to read will be charged at $25 per hour. Recording special interp. (provided by client as an mp3 audio file sent to me via the internet) is available for an additional $25 for a 2.5 minute song. Email or phone price quotes are only approximate. A final price is determined only when the project is complete and the duration of the song is then known.
