Looks like we don't have salary information. Sorry!
If you ask film composers - and I have - whether they feel there's too much or too little music in the average film, they will all say too much.
There's just too much music in movies, almost always more than I think there should be. It's either lack of confidence on the part of filmmakers or a tradition of scoring things. It's always better to have less than to have more.
