Our fee structure differs from that of the larger studios. We charge a single hourly rate for all of the services we provide. (see below) For that hourly rate, we begin as your studio engineer, professionally recording your tracks. We may then act as your studio musicians, adding instruments to your piece of music. We can also assist in arranging your music elements. Finally we work as your music producer, mixing, equalizing, and creating a final mix. We may even do other tasks, such as video recording, graphic design for a CD cover, etc. and it is all done at the same rate. This is far less expensive than hiring individual people, as you would need to do at a larger facility.

Hourly Rate: $48.00
Regular client* hourly rate: $45.00
Regular client* three hour session: $120.00 (works out to $40.00/hour)

At this time, Fingerman Studios accepts CA$H ONLY due to the nature of the business.

We do not offer sessions in excess of four hours, simply because both creativity and attention tend to weaken after more than four consecutive hours of work.

*Regular Client means anyone who comes to record on a regular basis and is prompt and pays on time. After your first two sessions with us, we will consider you to be a regular client if you return on a regular basis, for example, to work on a CD project or any group of songs. Please note that our prices are subject to change without notice, but we will always post the most current prices here on our website.


When we book a client for a date/time, we have to shuffle other work to clear the time for them, as well as preparing equipment. As a result, if a client fails to contact us within 24 HOURS to cancel, we will assume you are late but will continue to honor the booking for one hour. If or when you arrive, you will be expected to pay from the start of your booked time. If you are a no-show, we will charge you that hour at your next session. If you are a no-show more than once, we will refuse to book you again. This policy is necessary in order for us to offer our services at the rates we do. It would not be fair to other clients to have to raise our rates because of those who don't show up or fail to cancel.


When we meet with you, we'll be honest. If you don't have your songwriting skills together, we'll let you know and hope that you'll come back once you're ready. We don't believe in taking your money if we can't help you. That doesn't mean you need to be perfect - far from it. As long as you can hold a tune and have some sort of song ideas, we can help.

In fact, there's nothing we love more than seeing the look on a client's face once they hear their song in its fully produced form. So contact us today and we'll see if we can help you. Chances are, we can and you'll be thrilled at the results!

We also keep our rates as low as possible, but remember that we must maintain computer hardware and software, purchase newer effect plugins, and also maintain musical instruments, both real ones and virtual.
