Joe-Drick’s Answer

YouTube!!!

There are plenty of YouTubers that give tutorials on every step regarding the creation and distribution of music (concept, execution, recording, engineering, marketing, networking, etc.).

I suggest you check out Andrew Huang. His channel caters almost to every genre and he has a weekly segment where 4 producers use the same sample/loop/sound. Every producer break down their initial idea and why they chose the sounds they did. The segment mentioned above will also introduce you to a plethora of producers who specialize in different genres and all of them have their own channels.

Here are some genre specific channels:
1. Hip- Hop: Internet Money, Cxdy;
2. Pop: Make Pop Music;
3. EDM: Severman, EDM Tips;
4. Composition/ Film: Alex Moukala, Christian Henson, Spitfire Audio
5. Engineering: Produce Like A Pro, Recording Revolution, Mix With The Masters

Hope this helps.

John’s Answer

I went to a class at a music store that was being given for free by a company that was trying to sell their software. I attended the class and bought the MIDI software.

Eventually the internet became a great resource and I started using my first DAW; Reason. I found a series of videos on Youtube on how use Reason and how to mix. I watched them carefully and tried to imitate what I was seeing in the videos.

He is what I would recommend:

Decide on what you want. Do you want to make some house music? Some trap? Search for tutorials for those. Do you want to make a really awesome kick drum? Search for that too.
Listen to your music critically, what could be better? Try to find information on that.

Be you! You have your own unique way of doing just about anything, including music. Imitation is a great way to learn, find an artist you like and try to sound like them. But don't be discouraged if you don't sound exactly like them, because you are not them. You bring your own thing.

Have fun. Music is the greatest thing in the world!
