Welcome! My name is Steven Melin and I’m a music composer, educator, and performer in Atlanta, GA. I have composed for mobile games (WORM RUNSNAIL PANIC), console games (BEARD BLADEA MORE BEAUTIFUL WORLD), feature films (VIRTUOSOZOMBIE TAG), and television (ABCNBCCBS). I’m a graduate from Columbia College Chicago with an MFA in Music Composition for the Screen and Kennesaw State University with a BM in Piano Performance. In the last two years I have taught over 5,000 private music lessons to over 100 students, have guest lectured for master classes and presentations at schools and conferences, and am an active recording artist for soundtracks, albums, live events, and YouTube.

Recent Course Reviews:

“Absolutely phenomenal course! All the lectures go into great depth on the lesson topic and explain it clearly. Thanks for the awesome course Steven!”

“When I first ordered this course, I honestly thought I was going to get a lot of the same things I knew about composition work. Like what DAW’s are available, some basic music theory techniques, and maybe some mixing help. What Steven did here blows my expectations out of the water. He gives a lot of advanced music theory techniques, as well as detailed help on how to use your DAW, and he keeps you on your toes with some of these quizzes. Especially after you get halfway through the course. I don’t regret the money I paid for this course at all, and I’m glad that I have this course to reference when I’m in a bit of a pickle with my own goals.”
