This 36-tutorial course takes you on a GarageBand songwriting journey. It begins on the iPad. It develops on the Mac and reaches final production as it moves up to Logic Pro X for the finishing touches. Come along for the ride!
This course is designed for both GarageBand and Logic Pro users. That's because, when writing a song, it's important to get your inspirations recorded fast! GarageBand is the perfect creative workspace to create a song. Its intuitive design lets you easily get your song ideas down with just a few taps on the iPad or clicks on your MacBook. In fact, many big-time producers start their songwriting process right in GarageBand for iPad, move it up to GarageBand for Mac to add more ideas and complete the production in GarageBand's big brother: Logic Pro X!
This course explains every part of the musical journey as you see expert trainer Matt Vanacoro build a tune right before your eyes. He tracks his initial inspirations on the iPad. It's here that you learn how GB for iPad works and how you can use its intuitive interface and Smart Instruments to turn your ideas into tracks.
Next, you see how to bump-up your tune to GarageBand for Mac. This is where you can expand on your original ideas by rearranging sections, adding even more tracks and using tools like Drummer to build a solid foundation for your production.
The final section in this course reveals the power of finishing your project in Apple's Logic Pro. Logic Pro X is designed with GarageBand users in mind. Matt explains how to make the transition easy, comfortable and productive. He explains the power of Logic Pro's amazing features and processing power to bring your tune to a completely different level!
So join Matt on this GarageBand/Logic Pro journey and see the advantage of having both of these music production powerhouses at your fingertips!
We have the most complete collection of Logic Pro and GarageBand courses on the planet to help you push your productions to the highest level possible. Watch them all!
This is a great video lesson for anyone that wants to learn GarageBand is easy to understand the teacher explained so well. Man I wish the I saw this video before way years ago. I probably would be on logic now because they are similar but GarageBand is definitely for beginners that don’t know anything about recording this is the perfect video for anyone that really wants to learn I definitely recommend it to anyone. Thank you Matt Vanacoro for teaching I definitely will getting more videos from you.

Great course! Taking a project from incubation to completion while seamlessly utilizing GarageBand IOS, GarageBand MAC, and Logic Pro. Clear examples and real life application. Nicely done.

Very good, gives an excellent over view of Garage Band on the IPad and the Mac as well as Logic Pro. I learned quite a few things in the song's "journey" through the three platforms.Demonstrates how Garageband on the IPad and Mac, shouldn't be treated as just a beginner's or novice application but can be a integral part of a musical process.

Great course. I mainly watched this course for the Garageband for iPad features but learned a lot from the other apps in this course. I love how all three apps got tied together by the narrator to create a nice workflow.

These tutorials provided me with valuable information that helps me to get an idea off my mind via Garage Band when I'm out and about. Once I'm home, it's now a no brainer on how to import the idea into Logic.

Not too superficial not too profound, not too slow not too fast, for beginners in music production in general as well as for beginners in Garageband and Logic pro specifically, in short: an ideal introduction by a more than perfect teacher!
