I'm not really sure how to ask this or if it's considered a "touchy" subject but here goes. Someone has asked me to record a couple of hymns, just solo piano for the moment, put them on a CD, and the "client" will be singing along with the recorded piano accompaniment at a wedding.

I've recorded the MIDI piano part, just need to do the audio and toss it on a CD but I have no idea what to charge for this sort of service. It's taken me quite awhile because I usually just play live, so I can't really charge an hourly rate. Is there some standard range that would be a fair price for this sort of thing?

I realize if this were something I was going to do professionally I would need to look into the copyright issues (as I did for my own CD) but since this is a one-time thing, to be done once at a family wedding, I thought I would let these details slide for now.

Thanks

Randy
