    A professional musician Mate of mine put this on Face Book :-

    A guy calls the musicians' guild to get a quote on a 6 piece band for a wedding.
    The rep says "Off the top of my head it'll cost you about $2000".
    He says"WHAT? FOR MUSIC?.
    "The rep responds " I'll tell you what.
    Call the plumbers' union & ask for six plumbers to work from 6 to midnight on a Saturday night.
    Whatever they charge you, we'll work for half."

    Yes, I saw that. Never a truer word said. Mind you, if you were to ask a certain multi-account-holding troll (now a student at RCM), we're not even worth half unless we play for an orchestra full time.

    I remember when I did private lessons being harrassed by a parent for charging $50/hour...

    All true, but unfortunately with music, a similar effect can be had using the recorded variety for less than a tenth of the cost :-(
