iPad Music Production: GarageBand for Beginners

Mondays 7.15 – 8.15pm
£90 for 6-week course, beginning Monday 11th January

Coda’s new Music Technology Programme launches in January with an Introduction to GarageBand for the Apple iPad—an inexpensive yet powerful app that allows you to record and edit music with both real and virtual instruments.

The six week course begins with a tour around the interface, examining the instrument and track views. We demonstrate how to play both touch instruments and Smart Instruments, as well as how to connect and use real instruments and microphones. By week 4 you will be able to build, record, and edit a song from scratch, and finally export and share your music with iTunes, Facebook, YouTube, SoundCloud, email, and with other devices.

Topics include:

Selecting instruments
; Setting up a song;
 Playing touch keyboards and drums; Playing Smart Instruments
; Using real guitar amps; 
Working with loops; 
Recording instrument tracks; 
Editing MIDI tracks; 
Importing audio files; 
Exporting songs to multiple locations.  Full course details are below.

GarageBand will be taught by Kristian Dluzewski, on Mondays at Coda Music Centre. Sessions will last one hour and capacity is limited to 6 people per session.

Please contact the office on 01425 276161 or email contact@coda.org.uk to register your interest or to book for January.
