    I am a professional musician with over 15 years of experience in playing the guitar. I have graduated from the Faculty of Music in Belgrade majoring in Jazz guitar. My musical experiences so far, range everywhere from playing rock, metal and pop gigs to producing full records in my home studio. Genres of music which I am most comfortable with are metal, rock, jazz, blues and all ''sibling'' genres such as funk, pop, soul even electronic music. I have an eclectic taste in music and no genre is foreign to me in that sense. In addition, I am a passionate music teacher. I tailor my lessons to student’s needs or follow a fail-proof method depending on what feels right and what we ultimately agree upon together. I gladly share all of my hard-earned knowledge covering a large spectrum of music related skills.

    Hi, I'm Ashli! Do you want your own customized song? Give me a topic and genre! I’ll make it happen, guaranteed. I strive to exceed your expectations, and create something meaningful. I am a music producer, songwriter, and vocalist. My music has been featured in ads, used by businesses, and is even featured in an upcoming mobile music game. I have also worked on many personal projects for clients creating customized songs and covers. I am skilled at creating music in any genre. Like a musical sponge, I absorb the music I hear, and recreate elements of it in a unique song. I also excel in mixing, vocal tuning, and other audio work should your recording need a fix/edit! As a session vocalist, I will record quality, professional vocals, with plenty of style and FEELING! I am formally trained in both classical and jazz, but I specialize in pop, R&B, rock, and more. I work as a vocal instructor, session singer, and have worked as assistant director for a collegiate vocal jazz ensemble. With this ensemble, I won two National Downbeat Awards as lead soprano. My personal songs are often meant to be funny and entertaining, and I pick very odd topics, such as a pop-punk song about a “literal socially awkward two-story suburban home”. I always look to stay true to the genre, and give a quality performance. Thank you, Ashli Bajone

How much does it cost to hire a music composer?

Music composers create songs by choosing notes, rhythms, and chord progressions. Composers implement music theory and sound design to intentionally set the tone of each piece of original music. If you want high-quality custom music, you will likely want to work with a professional music composition freelancer. 

Music composition freelancer costs vary depending on their years of experience, your project scope and timeline, and the freelancer’s geographic location. Composers write music for a song but don’t typically write lyrics. They might be songwriters, and both compose music and write lyrics, or they might collaborate with lyricists and songwriters. Music composition freelancers might charge an hourly rate or per minute of finished music. 

Experience and expertise 

The years of experience and level of expertise will affect freelancer rates, typically ranging from $20-$100 an hour or $50-$1,000 per minute of finished music. The music industry can be non-linear, so there’s not necessarily a typical or direct progression in all composers’ careers. 

An entry-level music composer might write music for a low-budget, indie short film. An intermediate composer might work as a songwriter or music producer for an indie video game. An expert music composer will have the most comprehensive music composition knowledge and might specialize in film scoring. The most famous modern composers like Hans Zimmer and John Williams charge much higher rates than other expert composers.

Scope of work

The scope of your project will also factor into freelancer rates, with more involved projects commanding higher fees. If you need a jingle for a podcast or short video, that is a smaller project than working as the music composer on a feature film and will most likely command a lower rate. The more complex or specialized your composition needs, the higher your rates. 

Timeline 

Your project timeline also impacts costs; the longer you work with a freelancer, the more you will likely pay. If you need film music and want to work with someone long-term who can provide sound engineering and revisions, you will have higher final costs than if you only need one sound or jingle on a short-term project. If you need a finished song on a tight turnaround, freelancers will often charge a premium to get you your song quickly.

Geography 

Some composition projects require freelance talent to be physically present, for example, if they are an orchestral composer. Depending on the project, some music composition freelancers can work from home, so you might be able to work with professionals all over the world. Freelancers living in cities and countries with higher costs of living will likely charge higher rates, so consider geographic location when choosing the right composer for your music needs. 

Popular music composition projects & costs examples 

Jingle composer

Jingle composers write commercial jingles. Composers might create the music, the lyrics, or both. A jingle writer typically charges $100-$8,000 per package, but rates can go much higher depending on both the client and the composer.

Game music composer

The video game industry is massive, and rates can vary quite a bit here. Video game composer rates can range from $1,000 to $10,000 per finished audio minute. Indie games might have lower budgets, and mainstream games might have higher ones. 

Film composer

A film composer will likely charge per film rather than per minute of music or song. A low-budget studio feature will likely pay $60,000-$250,000 and potentially between $400,000-two million for one with a higher budget.
