    Hi everyone!

    I know fees are always a touchy subject but I figure we’re all here for some open discussion so I thought I’d ask: What do people charge to give a masterclass? Has anyone written a proposal for that before or do you just quote them a fee? A friend of mine approached me about coming to the school where he teaches to do a masterclass with his kids before their show in the Spring, but I’ve never given a masterclass before so I have no idea. $300? $500? $1000? I would want to do at least three hours I think, with at least 20 minutes per student.

    Thanks for your input!!

    Three hours seems like a long time – but this depends on how old the students are. Are they auditioning to be part of the masterclass, or is everyone in your friend’s class able to take part? If it’s everyone, then it seems like you’d be doing “public coachings” where others can watch. I think the best master classes address the specific student who’s singing, but also share broader lessons that everyone watching can take home and use.
    If these are middle or high school aged kids, do you have to fit into their school schedule? I think knowing more about what your friend expects from the timing would help determine how to structure the class and how much to charge. Maybe you could develop two templates, one for middle/high school, and then another for college or young professional aged students? I’m interested to hear if anyone has other thoughts!

    The students are high school age, and I believe it would be a “First Come, First Served” kind of thing with some veto power by my friend – not entirely sure though. As I understand it it would be on a Saturday or something like that, so I thought if I can get 6 students in then that would let me work with most of the major roles (this would be part of their preparation for their school musical, Jekyll & Hyde). I suppose an hourly fee would make for a better quote. I would imagine that he’d ask the students to cover at least part of the cost but that would be up to him to figure out. Thanks for your input, Ruth!

    A proposal with unique and digitally printed letterhead can be more outstanding than just ordinary written proposal. I guest to have that possible and your proposal be easily accepted, try some printer that do such quality print, and this type of print at http://www.digitekprinting.com/letterhead fits to that.
