Many subjects are affected by digital music production., including music genre prediction. Machine learning techniques were used to classify music genres in this research. Deep neural networks (DNN) have recently been demonstrated to be effective in a variety of classification tasks. Including music genre classification. In this paper, we propose two methods for boosting music genre classification with convolutional neural networks: 1) using a process inspired by residual learning to combine

To perform classification, the KNN output is fed into another deep neural network. Our preliminary experimental results on the GTZAN data set show that the above two methods, especially the second one, can effectively improve classification accuracy when compared to two different network topologies.
