Very good basic course on GarageBand.A wide range of topics are covered including all the main features & functions. Lessons are brief and to the point and more of a general overview.

I learnt soooooo much. Was very easy to follow and I loved the bite size segments. Definitely a 'go to' point for future referencing !
Well Done - Keep it up !

It is probably good for those wanting to produce music. I want to use it to edit audio podcasts. through basic mixing, compression and normalization of a voice track. I watched the first 27 or 28 and nothing was really helpful in my case. Maybe a category training section that allows different segments to be watched that would deal only with mixing and editing
