Songwriting FAQ

How much does a songwriter charge per song?

Songwriters charge varying prices per song. You’ll pay a premium for a songwriter who writes the hits you hear on the radio, but there are plenty of professional songwriters with more affordable rates. Songwriting services can include lyrics, music, or both, and the rates can vary depending on the song’s complexity.

Can I pay someone to write me a song?

You can pay a freelance songwriter to write a song, a jingle, or other musical pieces. In the music business, songwriters frequently sell songs to top musicians and recording artists, and some of the number-one Billboard hits are songs that were sold to those artists.

You can also buy a song or pay someone to write a song with you. For example, a lyricist can help you to find the perfect words, while a songwriter's helper or co-writer can assist with melodies and overall song construction while still giving you some creative freedom with your song.
