During this session musicians will discuss a step-by-step process to generate a price for performance opportunities that acknowledges experience, time, and the creative economy. Billy Dean Thomas will showcase examples of inquiries you may receive from anyone hoping to hire you for your music services and talk through how to respond or request a payment that best suits your desired outcome. Musicians will leave this workshop with a knowledge of how to quantify their skills along with a boost of confidence to ask for what they need from booking agents, venues, other artists, or even friends looking to book you for upcoming projects. Billy Dean Thomas is a Grammy-nominated hip-hop recording artist and composer whose polyrhythmic flows align with intersectional feminism and social justice.
