Pricing for Pipers

“ALL I NEED IS 2 SONGS”

Another misconception in pricing is that a customer will ask how much is it to play for five minutes, or two tunes. As a piper, playing for "just" 2 minutes or 30 minutes really is not going to impact my price.

From a piper’s perspective, we still have to prepare the uniform and instrument before leaving for the event. We then have to leave ample travel time to make it to the event to leave plenty of room to park, find and meet with the client, and tune the bagpipes. 

So if it’s two minutes or thirty minutes, it doesn’t matter, if the event is 2 hours driving distance away,  pay for tolls, pay for parking, leave enough time for traffic, and then walk 15-20 minutes to the actual event location/entering buildings/waiting for visitor passes. I can easily spend 8 hours for “just two songs”
