MUSIC ACCORDING TO GARAGEBAND If you are one of the many users of Apple’s iLife GarageBand or if you have been waiting for the right opportunity to open it for the first time, this article may be of interest.

INCLUDES A SET OF BEGINNER TUTORIALS FOR GARAGEBAND.

Apple’s Garage Band is a great way to get into music, whether it’s learning a musical instrument or starting to produce your own music. It’s part of the iLife suite, which is inexpensive at $79, and also includes iPhoto, iMovie, iDVD and iWeb. It includes music lessons and a reasonable DAW complete with plug-ins, loops and instruments.

I’ve just started teaching my 15-year-old daughter to play piano using the lessons in Garage Band, and so far I’m very impressed. The first lesson teaches a basic chord progression, and having to play the chords along with the computer teaches good timing. So far it’s a winner.

Coming from Apple, this program only works on Mac OSX. There isn’t really an equivalent for Microsoft Windows, but Sony Sound Forge or Acoustica Mixcraft are worth looking at.
