    Welcome but don't concern yourself with being a pro in the era of albums not selling like in the 1990s as you will be disappointed financially and how old are you and what's your education level?

    Have a particular lane and run with it e.g. don't try to do everything e.g. you don't need to be a DJ to produce Hip Hop and if you want to learn an instrument learn at least no more than 1 and learn 1 that can be the basis for your production(s).

    Don't over think it. Its music, so enjoy it.

    Study the music you enjoy. Study the people who make it. Then study the people that inspired them and their music. Read books about them, their work and how they made it. Read books about the people who worked with them and about the equipment they used. Then those small details you're looking for make more sense. They end up as nuggets of wisdom you add to your music. Music you feel and enjoy.

    So enjoy it and work backwards to study what you enjoy.

    Otherwise, welcome to FP!

    I think the best place to start is with music theory and composition. Learn how to construct a song. Usually I say piano is the best, cause its easiest and cheapest, but guitar works too..
