Looking for Paid Composing & Orchestration Mentor


New Member
Hey there - I am looking for a composer with bandwidth to meet 2-3 times a month to help me get out of this rut I find myself in with composing. The first milestone I'd like to hit is to be able to make things like what you can hear in this Spotify playlist.

If this is of interest to you, please send me a DM or reply below with a little bit about your background and music.

Thanks for your time! If you want more context of my background, open the spoiler below.

I've taken a few courses but am finding it difficult to utilize what I know. I also don't really know what I don't know, to be honest. I think I just am missing some really simple stuff needed to actually do anything with that knowledge. I still can barely write anything without using tools like Scaler or putting together basic chord blocks, breaking them up only using the simplest voicing changes.

I do not have a traditional education but I know some basic foundational things about theory. I have gone through many courses from Evenant and Thinkspace. I’m overall very new to composing.

I've made the fun but very distracting mistake of becoming addicted to sample libraries - I own everything ever made by Spitfire and many from Orchestral Tools. Candidly, I've probably spent more time playing with samples than I have writing with them... lol

An example of where I am at in terms of ability, here's a (bad) project I spent about 5 hours on.


Complete Beginner
