Whether you are a singer, rapper, or in a band the process of making music is similar.Here are the different steps involved in how to make music.
Step 1: Make a Beat or Buy a Beat
A beat or instrumental is the foundation of a song. Some music artists may start with lyrics first, but often music artists find a beat that inspires them and they write to it.
Option 1: Make a beat
It’s good if you know how to make your own beats because you can save money. But not many people are good at music production, songwriting, and performing. Stick to your strengths.
Option 2: Buy a Beat
Buying a beat may be easier for most of you. There are many talented music producers out there that have spent years developing their craft.
Buying beats allow you to experiment with different types of instrumentals and does not limit you to what kind of beats you can create.
Where to buy beats:
Pay for quality beats. Look at each beat as an investment.
You don’t want to put your name on crappy songs or bad beats.
You can gain and lose fans quickly with the music you put out.

5 Different Songwriting Ideas
1. Freestyle Lyrics
Sometimes when you hear a beat ideas will just come to you, but in the process of trying to capture and make sense of those ideas, you can get lost, and you will lose those other creative ideas.
So I suggest you record yourself freestyling over the beat to capture the different lyrics, melodies, hooks, and feelings. Then revisit it and make sense of the ideas you have.
2. Use Online Software
Helpful websites like RapPad are created for songwriters. RapPad will analyze your lyrics and give you words that rhyme. It offers a built-in rhyming dictionary, syllable counter, thesaurus, and more.
