Find Freelance Musicians for Hire

A musician is any individual who is passionate about music and can compose music or play a musical instrument professionally. They may play one or more musical instruments in recital, in accompaniment or as member of an orchestra, band or another musical group.

What Do Freelance Musicians Do?

A freelance musician writes, performs and records music. They work in a variety of music genres such as classical, rock, pop, indie, jazz, hip-hop or folk. They may play a number of instruments such as cello, guitar, violin, piano, synthesizer, drums and saxophone to name a few.

Depending on the role they play in a given piece of music, musicians can be classified as a conductor, a composer or song-writer, an instrumentalist or a singer. A conductor conducts an orchestra, chorus, ballet or other musical group in the performance and interpretation of ensemble works. A composer is an author of music in any form, including vocal music, instrumental music and electronic music whereas a song writer is a composer who writes songs. An instrumentalist is a musician who plays a music instrument without singing whereas a singer is a musician who sings, who may or may not play an instrument along with it.

Musicians audition for positions in music groups and for music gigs, rehearse to prepare for these performances and performs music for live audiences and recordings. They may also perform at concerts, festivals, theatres and other music venues and participate in recording sessions. At times, musicians also assume the role of music producers. They are professionals who supervise all aspects of the recording process, from helping to select songs to contracting with session players, selecting the studio and engineers, booking studio time and overseeing the recording budget.

Though most professional musicians are represented by talent management agencies, there are a number of local musicians for hire available on online freelance marketplace like Guru.

When looking at freelance musicians for hire, make sure your freelancer can:

  • Direct, plan, create and lead musical performances.

  • Provide the musical background for live shows such as ballets, operas, musical theatre and cabarets.

  • Participate in marketing and promotional events.

Qualifications of Freelance Musicians

  • Confidence in performing before an audience

  • Ability to hear differences in pitch

  • Strong mental and physical discipline

  • Some singing ability

  • Willingness to work at odd hours

  • Willingness to work in a team and in collaboration with other musicians, composers and singers
