Harm Jan wrote a lot of new music as a composer. Compositions for very different kinds of line-up in very different kinds of styles and crossovers. Check the menu Works for an overview of a big part of his compositions.



What are the costs of a composition or arrangement? It depends on a lot of things like the duration of the piece, how many parts or voices it should have, and the complexity of the piece. However, Het Nieuw Geneco (the composers assosiation) provides every year a table with guidelines to give an indication of the costs. Some examples:


1) You want an instrumental arrangement for string quartet of the Beatle song 'All you need is love' (duration: 3'40).

- Price indication: € 800,-


2) You want a new and complex composition for (semi) professional orchestra and choir with a duration of approximately 25 minutes.

- Price indication: € 15.000,-


3) You want three customized arrangements of jazz standards for your own concert band to accompany a singer during a concert. Duration: 20 minutes.

- Price indication: € 2300,-


4) You want a new composition for an anniversary of your own wind ensemble consisting of 14 players. The piece should be around 12 minutes.

- Price indication: € 4250,-


As you can see, the price of a composition or arrangement is a function of the estimated time a composer will work on it. In fact, you will pay by the hour, just like you would do with your plumber or tax consultant.
