ERROR in Entry module not found: Error: Can't resolve 'babel-loader'

I am a beginner to react. While setting up the installation and loading up all the dependencies, I finally run the
 npm start

Open in new window

command but this generates the error ERROR in Entry module not found: Error: Can't resolve 'babel-loader' in 'C:\Users\me\Documents\React\react-playlist' I have performed all the installation steps correctly. I have also attached the screenshot of the project folder. I also got webpack installed globally v 3.10.0 but that also didn't work. I also tried by inserting resolve loaders code in package.json file but that also didn't work. Here is the error picture.

P.S.: I'm following this tutorial

Below is the code of my project.

Package.json file:
