GarageBand is an inexpensive yet powerful app that allows anyone to jump right in and create their own songs in a matter of minutes. In our introductory lesson to GarageBand students learn the fundamentals of song creation using GB's built-in loops as a starting point.
Students can expect to take away from the first lesson and undertanding of;
- How to choose which instruments to layer and add them to the timeline.
- How to split instrument loops for interesting musical effects.
- How to create 'space' between the instruments using volume, pan, and effects.
- How to create an MP3 that can be sent via email or shared with the world!
