GarageBand lessons

create music with or without picking up an instrument

Apple’s GarageBand is a free but surprisingly resourceful program that allows recording, editing and mixing audio. GarageBand can be used to create audio and music, including original songs, albums, and covers; commercials and radio; content creation for your social channels, music for tv and film; and composing for video games and other media.

Private GarageBand lessons will flatten the learning curve. You’ll get one-on-one Zoom instruction from a GarageBand master with priority on getting you creating right away and having fun while doing so.

Youtube tutorials can be hard to follow. Pre-recorded lessons don’t give you the opportunity to ask questions or interact.

With our guided GarageBand lessons, you get the individual attention needed to see outstanding results faster. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned GarageBand user, our live instruction will have you performing at the top of your game.

how does GarageBand work?

GarageBand is essentially a full music studio inside your Mac or iPad. It has a complete sound library that includes instruments, presets for guitar and voice, and a selection of session drummers and percussionists.

With GarageBand you can:

1. record voices and musical instruments
Record your voice, an instrument, or any sound you can capture with a microphone. Plus, GarageBand includes a huge collection of digital instruments, including pianos, synthesizers, guitars, drums, horns, and more.

2. add loops
With GarageBand you can add loops to your project. When you add loops recorded at different speeds or in different musical keys, they all play together at the same speed and in the same key.

3. arrange and mix 
Arrange sections containing your recordings, then move, trim, rename, and make other edits.

4. learn to play guitar or piano
You can learn to play your guitar or keyboard using our guided GarageBand lessons. We’ll teach you how to repeat sections you want to practice, slow them down to master a difficult part, guiding you every step of the way.

5. share your music with the world
When you finish your project, you can share it with family, friends, or the world by uploading it to iTunes, iCloud, or SoundCloud; or using AirDrop.
