Can I take the class if I have GarageBand on my laptop or desktop?
The iOS version is distinctly different than the OS version for computers. This class is iOS only. BUT the computer version of the class is coming in 2023! Please CONTACT US and let us know you'd be interested in the desktop/laptop version of the class when it launches, with Brent also teaching.

What if I (or my son or daughter) take the class and love it and want to keep going and further my knowledge? Will there be a next level?
Yes! Graduates of the intro class will be eligible for ongoing study where we deepen our toolbox, get prompts to create each week, and have the chance to share work with peers and get guidance and input from the instructor. All in the new year!

I want to learn a recording software for my laptop or desktop sooner!
Great! You are ready for GarageBand's professional big sibling LOGIC PRO. We have a fantastic course in Logic Pro taught by the author of 5 books on the subject, longtime leader of the LA Logic Users Group Jay Asher. Go here to learn more or take the class right away on-demand or to enroll in the next live version.

You can get a free 90-day trial of Logic Pro here, fully functional!
