Projects for Music Creation in Garage Band

This extensive document contains a range of diverse projects designed by Antony Hubmayer for effective music creation using Garage Band in the Classroom. It covers the musical and technical focus and assessment of projects, and is a step by step guide, including many screen captures to assist.


Music Creation Using Garage Band is designed to guide upper primary and secondary school learners through engaging tasks that focus upon developing musical understanding and creativity while introducing software specific music technology skills. They are designed for people with fundamental music technology skills and are suitable for individual instruction or for whole-class upper primary and secondary school students. Other than headphones, no special music workstation is required (a MIDI keyboard is optional).


This document demonstrates how to use GarageBand, an easy-to use, yet very powerful program, in the general music classroom to teach many musical skills and concepts along with providing basic skills in using music software. The key to working with music technology programs is the design of the curriculum. Most students are quite familiar with computers and can dive right in and figure out how to operate a program like GarageBand. That means step-by-step instruction is out. Instead consider project-based learning. A well-designed project will guide students to develop skills and concepts in such a way that they will retain the information. Sample projects, short cuts, and a short section on assessment are included.
