Garage Band '11 Music

Students are learning to create music and record words on Garage Band, an application on our computers. There are so many components to Garage Band that we are only touching on a couple of them in Tech class. Students learn to record their own voice. Not only in song but their speaking voice. Imagine how they can use this recording to record reading a book, add words to a presentation they have to give in a iPhoto slideshow, Powerpoint, Prezi or iMovie. There are different rhythms and instruments to choose from and a tutorial, in our links of interest to the right, gives a quick demo of how to create a new song. The is no limit to the creativity students or adults can utilize when using Garage Band!

CD Cover Designs

Students had to take photos for their cover art and then were allowed to retouch it using Adobe Photoshop software. They chose the name of their CD and Band and created the song titles to use.
