LYRICS - Lyricist get writers credit. Lyrics only do not make you a songwriter. Maybe a poet, but not necessarily a songwriter. Putting your lyrics to a melody is what makes a song. 

*THE PROCESS/CREATING*

Music has to be created/arranged and recorded to go with your melody and lyrics.

You start with music already put together (the beat) and then you create words and a melody to fit.

"Professional Musicians" put sounds in the right places.

The "Arranger" selects the instruments and sounds that fit the overall goal of the song.

A "Music Producer" is the Director. He/She over-sees every creative aspect to complete the song.

** THE TECHNICAL PART**

The "Engineer"  is the person who makes sure all of the music and vocals get recorded accurately.

The "Mixer"  balances out volume levels & adds necceasy EQ & Effects.

( Compression, Delays, Reverbs, etc)

"Mastering Engineers" take the final mix and complete the process with Mastering tools to

get the song radio ready.
