This is a great course! I knew that you could do so much with GarageBand, but the learning curve is steep and my understanding of music and audio engineering isn't great. So this was a great way to learn the program, while getting great tips for how to put together a track from an engineering or aesthetic point of view as well. Super cool. i've been wanting to create my own tracks for just this purpose for a long time. I'm so glad I found this course! Thank you Joseph!

Is it just me?

This class was perfect! I'm a real beginner and just wanted to get an easy friendly intro to GarageBand. This was just what I was looking for. Mr. Evans gave such a clear, step-by-step tour through a great project! It might have been TOO much fun! I hope he'll do a class on basic song structure next! Great class! Thank you Mr. Evans!
