GarageBand, Not GarbageBand
GarageBand is part of the iLife suite of programs on a Mac. The loops are all ready to drop and drag into GarageBand, so anyone can compose a song, create their own loops, record their own instrument, and even create podcasts.
This can pose a problem and many times it comes out sounding like garbage. You will be composing loops, making podcasts, creating movies, then posting on the web, and finally commenting on each other’s work. There are simple steps and “tricks” of the trade in creating these files. This could be used for early elementary students to college age. This class will be working with the GarageBand application and the GarageBand iPad app. Management of composed digital music will also be addressed in regards to posting and commenting, which is part of the Common Core standards. Come and create, post, and comment!
