Hi Ian,

I have had a previous experience regarding working for somebody who was
willing to pay me in order to diffuse her piece. The piece that I have
diffused was around eight minutes long and I was paid $120 U.S. It is
important to know that there is no (or not that I am aware of) any
standardized fee for this kind of work. It is pretty much up to you and
the person whom you hired to diffuse your piece. The price may also
vary based on actual preparation of diffusionist. If you have a score
(which I have a tendency to make) for exact diffusion in the piece,
this means that your diffusionist will have to spend more time in order
to learn that. It is not easy trust me! If you give your diffusionist a
certain level of freedom to do what he or she wants, then the price
could be a bit lower.

Good luck!
