Question for self-publishers about pricing music
Date: January 30, 2012
I am looking for guidance regarding appropriately pricing my scores that, up until now, have all been offered for free. Although I will not starve if nothing ever sells, I work nearly full time at composing and would like to receive some sort of reasonable compensation for my efforts if or when a piece sells. So, I would greatly appreciate any insights or formulas or guidelines that you could provide that work for you. I would also appreciate knowing if you have modified your pricing strategy in the face of current economic conditions that have probably reduced most choirs' budgets for new music.
