Teacher Review For GarageBand

Great way to get students to create their own background music with or without the knowledge or playing instruments.

How I Use It
I have used it where students use the auto play for the smart instruments and they can record some measures to be able to add background music to another presentation. The students picked up quickly on what to do, from kindergarten up to 5th grade. Works better if you have the full version.
My Take
I think this is a great tool to help students get experience with different types of instruments. They also have the ability to be composers with a limited music background. My students have asked again and again to use Garage Band.
