WHO WE ARE

DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR?

You have a great idea for a music track, but don’t know where to start and how to turn your thoughts into real music…

Your composition business is up and running, but it’s not going as well as you’d like, and you’re out of ideas for how to attract and keep clients…

You’ve spent countless hours trying to build your music composition business, and you’re sick of the frustration of battling tech gremlins

You’re struggling to stay on top of the seemingly endless list of tasks you need to handle, and you’re not enjoying running your business

If it does, then you already know what a minefield it can be trying to get quality advice & support

THAT’S WHAT INSPIRED US TO BUILD THIS PLACE

We were fed up with hearing stories about composers with great ideas, just like you, feeling stuck and let down in their pursuit of music career success, thanks to:

Sleazy “Music Professionals” who promise the world, but deliver very little once they have their hands on your cash…

Overly-technical tutorials that bore you to tears with mind-numbing mechanics of composing a track, and don’t say a thing about strategy or marketing…

Over-priced courses that make big claims about helping you be successful…just as long as you already have a large social media following or massive advertising budget…

Thankfully, all of that is behind you…

MEET STEVEN MELIN

Hi, I’m Steven Melin and I’ve spent the last 5 years guiding the growth of thousands of music composers’ careers through community building, private coaching, online courses, video training, conferences, college master classes, podcasts, and blogging.

With 13 years of Screen Music Composition experience, I’ve learned that there are 4 Screen Music Pillars™ that create a successful career: Music Composition, Music Production, Music Technology, & Music Business.

Most composers have a tendency to focus on only 1 or 2 of these areas, leaving a gaping hole in their craft. In 2018, I decided to take all of the knowledge and experience from my journey and use it to help other music composers just like you achieve success – and so the Screen Music Academy was born. This is now my full-time business alongside other great leaders in the community and we love spending our days creating content and supporting our members.
