In the only Apple-certified guide to GarageBand, readers will be creating original works within the first few chapters. Using real-life material and practical lessons that they can apply immediately to their own projects, this book/media combo offers a complete, self-paced course in all aspects of GarageBand. Focused lessons take you step-by-step through fun, real-world projects, and the newest GarageBand features.

Exclusively for this book, author/musician Mary Plummer works with a host of talented artists ranging from a student songwriter to a professional touring guitarist, an award-winning poet, an independent hip hop recording artist, and award winning dancers to create all new, real-world projects that readers will step-through. Along the way readers will get to mix a songwriter’s demo, test amp simulators and stomp boxes with an electric guitar solo, edit spoken dialog for an audio book, lay down original hip-hop beats using a drum machine patch and dynamic tempo changes, and add percussion and effects to a dance video to enhance the sound.
 
For mobile users, the book includes an overview of GarageBand for iOS and sharing GarageBand songs via iCloud between iOS devices and your Mac.

This self-paced learning tool pairs an easy, accessible style with ample illustrations and keyboard shortcuts to guarantee that readers become proficient with GarageBand in no time.
