Its important to do your homework before you approach a music producer. There must be a reason why he is convinced to hire you. To do so, you need to come up with unique compositions and a strong vocal to impress the producer. Moreover, going to a music producer means you will be negotiating some things. Set apart things that you can compromise and those that you cannot.
This helps you decide whether the deal is something you should take or reject. For instance, a producer may ask you to change the way you look, which is acceptable. However, changing the line of your music or perhaps your style, may not be acceptable for many.
There are several things you should do before approaching a producer to make music with them. First, you need to know what kinds of things you are willing to compromise about and what things are you willing to negotiate. For example, you may be willing to change your looks but you may not be willing to change the style or your music, or vice versa.
Secondly, you need to be confident in your abilities and have some samples of your work to prove your abilities.
