Apple and the musical instrument retailer Guitar Center have teamed up to offer weekly workshops in GarageBand, according to Guitar Center’s website. Starting May 7th from 10-11 AM and running every Saturday, Guitar Center will be offering four free Recording Made Easy workshops at all of its 216 stores. The aim of the workshops is to teach musicians “How to record your first song using Mac and GarageBand…You’ll learn everything from basic tracking to creating a finished song.”
The first workshop on May 7 covers “Signal Flow and Microphone Techniques.” May 14 is “Virtual Instruments and Loops.” May 21’s workshop is “Effects” and the final workshop on May 28 is “Mixing and Publishing.” After the May 28 workshop, the workshops will begin again on the next Saturday, starting with the first one. You must register for the workshops to attend. Clicking the register button on Guitar Center’s site takes you to Apple’s Seminars & Events page where you can complete your registration.
