What is a minimum fee?

This is the minimum amount we would expect a musician to quote for a particular job. Having a minimum fee for each job prevents undercutting by musicians who may be willing to work for less than adequate rates, as a result pushing down the expected price for musician hire.

It is based on a number of factors, including suggested rates from musician bodies like the MU and ISM, the industry experience of our bookings staff (who have all been freelancers themselves), and job specific information from the enquiry itself (such as the client's budget, the size of the ensemble required and whether equipment hire is needed).
