Become a better musician by listening to other genres

The best thing you can do to enhance your songwriting and or music production skills is to listen to other genres of music. Do not be a closed minded person when it comes to this. Study older music. It can give you ideas for writing, mixing, producing, and more. Expand your mind.If you are a Hip-Hop person, try listening to Rock, R&B, Jazz, and more. You will be surprised at how it will inspire you to become a better musician. A good way to listen to other genres is to put on a pair of headphones.
Listen to how the song is mixed. Listen to and pick out each instrument they used. Listen to how they panned stuff in each ear. Pick out any effects that were used. Last but not least, listen to the lyrics.
There is a whole world of music out there. Take advantage. There is so much to discover.
