GarageBand 101

GarageBand is a complete music studio right at your fingertips. Not only is it easy to record, arrange and mix your own music projects, it also makes sharing them online a snap. This beginner-level course takes you through GB basics step-by-step, covering the basics of recording, mixing and creating using a Digital Audio Workstation. Through detailed tutorials, topic-specific projects, peer-to-peer project reviews and relevant discussion topics, you’ll walk away with a practical understanding of GB’s possibilities, and immediately employ them in your classroom.
