Hummie Mann (Born October 29, 1955 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada) is a two-time Emmy award-winning American film score composer. He is best known for his scores to the Mel Brooks films Robin Hood: Men in Tights and Dracula: Dead and Loving It. Mann was awarded an Emmy for arranging Billy Crystal's opening number for the 1992 Academy Awards and another Emmy in 1996 for Showtime's Picture Windows: Language of the Heart. He was nominated for two more for arrangements on the series Moonlighting.

In addition to composing for television and film, Mann has orchestrated several film scores including Addams Family Values, Sister Act, and Georgia Rule.

In 1997, Mann established the Pacific Northwest Film Scoring Program in Seattle, Washington to instruct students in film scoring, music technology, songwriting for film, and video game audio. This program merged with the Seattle Film Institute in 2011 and became accredited to confer a Masters of Music degree in Film Composition. In 2010 Mann was cited as one of the top 10 Leaders in Learning by Variety magazine.
