Welcome! My name is Steven Melin and I’m a music composer, educator, and performer in Atlanta, GA. I specialize in writing energetic music. From quirky electronic chiptunes to dramatic orchestral pieces, I breathe life into every project with sonic motion.
My music has been used internationally in mobile games, console games, feature films, & television. 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’ve taught over 5,000 private music lessons, 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.
For those of you who have been following the development of Beard Blade by Glovebox Games, you will be sad to hear that the recent Kickstarter campaign failed to meet the goal. However, the team announced an update with hopeful news for the continued development of the game! Read the full update here.
Beard Blade is an action-packed 2D platformer for PC inspired by 16-bit legends! Play as the gallant Branson a.k.a. “Beard Blade” as he strives to reclaim the town’s stolen goods and uncover the truth behind a dark secret. His weapon of choice? An enchanted beard teeming with powerful magic that allows him to shape-shift his stubble to overcome hairy situations. The enemies are tough, but so is your scruff!
This course is intended for all composers, musicians, and students seeking to take a serious shot at writing for film, TV, & video games!
“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.”
