I want to let you in on a secret that no accomplished composer wants you to know. So why am I telling you? Honestly, it’s because I am a teacher and it’s just in my blood to teach. The thing is, I will actually be making my life much harder by teaching you this secret because as many of you know, it is extremely competitive in the world of film score composing. It’s not because there are just soooo many unbelievably talented composers out there, it’s simply because there are just so many fighting for the same job. You’d be surprised how many do not know the secret I am about to reveal and now, you will have the edge to be selected from all of the rest. 

Are you ready for it ? Here it comes…




Wow!!! not exactly earth shattering is it, but melody is everything. A memorable melody can skyrocket a movie into the stars. The melody is what truly gives a movie it’s soul and the scores from the greatest movies of all time have a central melody.


I am going to teach you how to write such a melody in this video blog.
