Creating your own music can be very fun and also very gratifying. But until now, the technology to do so was either too simple or too expensive and complicated. GarageBand is the first music creation program that strikes the perfect balance between the two extremes, and it comes free with every new Mac that Apple ships.

Whether you are an experienced musician who wants to record themselves and digitally add a back-up band, or can't tell a clef from a key and are just trying to have fun, GarageBand will accommodate you, and this book will teach you how to get the most out of it.
