About Me

Welcome to Professional Composers - The website for composersWelcome to Professional Composers, an online magazine and community for music composers, producers and sound designers. This is the place for music creators like yourself, to improve your knowledge, skills and career in music.

My name is Mikael “Mike” Baggström, and I am a music composer, sound designer and artist. I started my journey back in 1998 when I made my first track ever using old school tracker software.

I then continued to upgrade and build my studio over the years with hardware, software and tools, while studying and practice all aspects of music: from synthesizers and sound design, to music theory, composition and production.

Today I have my own home studio for music and audio production, while also teaching music with online courses, videos and articles.

My Best Advice to You

I have learned the hard way, that “the only way to move forward is by taking action”. Consistent and bold action. The harder the work, the greater the chance for success. How do you become a better music composer, producer, sound designer, artist etc?

  • Learn every Day
  • Practice every Day
  • Create every Day

PS. I wish you good luck and great success on your professional journey in music.

Friendly regards,
Mikael “Mike” Baggström
Founder of Professional Composers
