Music for Film

I have written songs since I was a teenager. The highlight of my songwriting career (so far) has been writing a song with Prince (Dance Unto The Rhythm) and writing several songs with and for his protégé Ingrid Chavez. For more information check out my Wikipedia page (Michael Koppelman) or my discography.

I’ve written a lot of instrumental music over the years. I especially like piano music but I also fool around with dance beats and synthesizers. Here is a collection of songs I am looking to license for TV and film.
