This is an anagram styled riddle and the answer is a word.

Be careful I'm dangerous, left how I'm read

Remove my first letter and I'll become music instead

Switch my middle letters and I'm used as a cover

Leave me as a cover then take away my last letter, I'll become something flammable like no other

What am I?

Are you...

A Trap?? (revised from a Strap, which is a weaker answercough I mean it doesn't work.)

Reasoning:

"Be careful I'm dangerous, left how I'm read"
Traps are generally dangerous.

"Remove my first letter and I'll become music instead"
Rap is a type of music.

"Switch my middle letters and I'm used as a cover"
Tarp, short for Tarpaulin, is used as a cover.

"Leave me as a cover then take away my last letter, I'll become something flammable like no other"
Tar is very flammable.

Method:

Looked up types of music, found this, used brute force.
