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.

THRIVING, SUPPORTIVE COMMUNITY OF PEERS
Our community is the heart of the Academy and the place to ask all of your questions, seek feedback, & gain support while interacting with like-minded Screen Music Composers.
In the forums we introduce new members, keep weekly progress logs, review music tracks & demo reels, share industry resources, provide music technology discounts, offer job opportunities, and have open discussions…everything you need to interact with your tribe!
We may be biased, but we believe that our members are amazing with a wide range of skills and expertise. Our members make the Academy forums an incredible & enjoyable resource to access 24/7.
Weekly Challenges are crafted to grow your music career every day. Each month we cycle between each of the 4 Screen Music Pillars™ to strengthen your foundation:
Week 1 – Music Composition
Week 2 – Music Production
Week 3 – Music Technology
Week 4/5 – Music Business
New challenges begin on Mondays and all participants submit by Sundays. All submissions are publicly reviewed by peers throughout the week and as a bonus, one of our community leaders reviews selected entries every Monday in a community-only live stream. These live streams provide valuable constructive feedback that all members can learn from. All live streams are added to the Video Library.
Challenges are optional, but provide an exceptional platform for applying new knowledge and receiving quality feedback.
