It all depends...I play saxophone for weddings and corporate events. I get paid around $175 to $250 an hour with the average gig lasting around 2hrs. However, I only have arou…nd 1 to 2 gigs a month. Guess you could say I'm a part time musician. I do have friends that work in the music industry full time and have decent lives making around 40k to 50k. Unless you get "discovered" or become the next great one hit wonder music can be a very tricky business to base your livelihood on. I always say, do it for fun, for passion but have a day job too so you won't be stressed...:) Just my perspective...Make music, inspire others...

It depends. Is this a famous musician, a well-known musician, or an unknown? You get what you pay for. Some can command hundreds of thousands of dollars for a concert. Some ar…e happy to perform for tips. Musicians who are happy to do a concert for tips are either not very good or really see a great opportunity derived from your event. Typically, you should call the office of the local musicians' union, affiliated with the AFM (American Federation of Musicians) to get a full detailed rated schedule. This union is one of the weakest performance unions, so unless you're a big concert hall, you can usually get around their rules. However, follow these general rules: Clubs: minimum is about $85/player for smaller clubs and a few hours. Restaurants: negotiate. You can get 250 to 500 for a solo gig for 2 to 5 hours on the West Coast. Concert Halls: Main musician, 500 to 3,000, depending on the audience and ticket price. Supporting musician, 165 to 400 per player, depending on concert and required time (rehearsal, stage plotting/lighting, etc. You may also need to consider travel fees, cartage fees (for certain large instruments, including drums and keyboards), and meal allowances, depending on your call times for the musicians. Once you get into names and minor names, the fees go up, because they are driving your sales and can demand more money. These figures are rough, and include items that could be paid as "benefits" under a formal contract. Unfortunately, Local 47 in Los Angeles is not smart enough to post their information on line for you to look at, and the fee structure is several pages long. Give them a call if you're on the West Coast.
the average amount is $14.83 US dollars
Musicians like Mozart usually worked in the courts of the nobles as musicians or the court composers.
The potential earnings for musicians really depends on the level of skill and area of art they go into. Some musicians can make millions while others will only make tens o…f thousands.
It is very difficult to earn a full time living as a guitarist because there are loads of people out there who will perform for free. The club/pub owner doesn`t care how ba…d you are so long as you bring in customers, so a dreadful free player who brings 10 customers is fine with the club. Ever heard of a waitress working for free? Obviously they have more brain power than the average guitar player. For that reason many decent players earn their main living as a teacher and do occasional gigs. Musician union rate is £119 per gig.
2000 euro a month before taxes for starting musician, can go up to 3000.
No - in the United States, on average a veterinarian will earn more than a musician, and have a more stable source of income and more job opportunities than a musician as well….
