In most cases the employer or the musician will determine the appropriate compensation amount for substitute engagements. Usual parameters include number of services, whether there is a separate/full rehearsal or brief warm up only, number of services, service music only, with soloist, with choir, regular service or special event or holiday, in addition to the experience and skill level of the musician.
