Track Builders: Music Production using GarageBand (Online)

Track Builders

You already have access to a powerful (and free) software tool for music production - now learn how to use it!  Believe it or not, some of the biggest hits by Rihanna, Radiohead, and Kendrick Lamar have been produced to some degree in GarageBand.  

We’ll study form, instrumentation, and production of genres such as hip-hop/trap, EDM, and pop using GarageBand as a tool. 

Participants will study a new piece each week, learn to compose their own ideas, and showcase productions at the end of the course.

Prerequisites: Knowledge of major/minor keys and basic rhythmic note values.

Materials Needed: Apple laptop or desktop computer with GarageBand v10.2 or later (iPhone or iPad will not suffice) and webcam.  MIDI keyboard recommended but optional.
