    Don't forget chords are also written. The chord progression goes with the lyrics & melody as written parts.

    A "beat maker" is grouped with the musicians as either a performer, writer or both. And if they're involved with the overall sound, they're also producers. A beat maker may also be an arranger.

    Producers don't necessarily make tracks. You can produce a song without touching an instrument. Producers of other genres do it all the time. In Hip Hop, the beat maker & producer is often the same person, but sometimes it's not.

    These are all separate things that are sometimes done by a single person. This happens mostly in electronic genres where the producer may have made the beat, wrote the chords, arranged elements of the song, etc. But that doesn't make those things production. It makes the producer those things; writer, arranger, etc.
    The groove baby, the groove...

    Although there are different types of producer. being a producer includes anyone who fits and of the categories mentioned in above posts.

    A producer doesnt even have to have a hands on thing with the music. They could simply be the one who organized the ideas, got the team together (Engineer, musician, beat maker and artist) Because they were the one who actually made the production happen. I wouldnt care about it so much. There are so many different kinds of producer that its ridiculous to try to think someone is being a try hard when they say it.

    We produce a product. We are producers

    technically, a beat maker IS a songwriter. Yet, a Music Producer is not necessarily a songwriter or a beat maker

    producer

    A good composer has full theory/genre knowledge. "Beat makers" are way more limited and single minded.

    Easiest way I can explain...

    Not all beat makers produce, and not all producers make beats.
