Take all things musicy, get involved with low level music production (at your school/college). Experience will be more valuable than any A level when you are trying to get an actual music production job; it would also look great on your CV/Personal statement.

My friend's a music producer and has zilch in terms of qualifications.

I imagine Music Technology would be the only quintessential one. If you're a talented amateur, not even that's needed.

Mathematics certainly can help - music is based on it after all.

English language for some more creative lyrics.

The fourth? Another topic you have a passion for, perhaps.

I'm 14 one of the youngest music producers in Britain take music technology but learn basics at home on course websites like coursea or future learn but it's a hard road to go down which takes dedication and practice mainly at home. Also music producing in terms of working for someone or your own business e.g.: your own studio. Also you need to think what genre. Great way to start is garage band if you have or mac or fl studio or Ableton (bit pricy) and get a midi keyboard and start YouTube videos also help. Then eventually you'll get better and better. If you want to know anything else just reply
