Totally Tuned

  Totally Tuned connects talented composers, songwriters and producers to the international business world.

All through a unique Masterclass and an innovative Platform for e-learning and co-creation.

We are a group of successful composers and producers and we see a mismatch between supply and demand for great music. Our belief is that there will always be a need for new and great music and we focus on brands, companies and media. There is definitely need for a new business model for composers and producers that don’t have a record deal or a publisher backing them up, that’s where we come in.

Brand and business owners: For companies, brands, film makers and other media makers we offer unique composed music for a great price. Are you looking for music? click here.

& lesson




Ridvan Duzey – Composer: “It’s almost unreal that we’ve only been working for 3 weeks and so much has happened. We’re a group with such different characters and identities but I feel very special to be part of it. The whole concept of analyzing music genres and companies, finding their musical identity and DNA, and writing from that perspective really is amazing. I am so enthousiastic about TT! I’m doing things I never did before, trying new methods, listening to new genres, it’s so great!! I can’t do anything else than thank you for starting something so beautiful as TT!”

Tim van Dorst- Composer: “”For me the Totally Tuned Masterclass was exactly what I needed in my development as a composer and producer.
It really helps you get on the right track by learning to think differently about music and it’s function. The music industry today is all about competing, but I believe Totally Tuned proves that you can achieve far more by joining forces”.

Daniel Veld- Composer: “I must say that I am very satisfied with following the TT Masterclass. From all the lessons that I follow at ArtEZ, Institute of the Arts, and masterclasses that I attended in the past, I think the Totally Tuned masterclass is closest to the real thing, the real market”.

Ruud Hermans – Composer: “I followed the Masterclass of Totally Tuned with and from Erwin Steijlen. Making Tunes for companies and getting feedback from the best professionals in the business! I learned so much and made many new contacts. And as icing on the cake I also won one of the opportunities!”

Michiel Westerhuis – Composer: “The Masterclass was very interesting and I learned a lot! Now writing a Business plan and making Tunes.
To all creatives among us: very much worth it! in September the new course starts” !!

We founded Totally Tuned as a solution to a big and worldwide problem that most creative people will recognize: How can I make a living with my music? How can I make money with my talent? – Erwin Steijlen/Founder Totally Tuned
