NOTE about GarageBand for iOS version 2.2:

In January 2017, Apple updated the GarageBand for iOS App which changed the way some things look and added some new features. 
Fortunately, I’ve been able to put together a FREE class that will help you if you’re looking at my previous classes that were made using version 2.1:
Mobile Recording Studio: GarageBand for iPad - App version 2.2 updates

This class will take you through changes made to the GarageBand App for iOS in version 2.2 - In particular, it will cover any part of the App that has changed or looks different in my videos made before January 2017.
