GarageBand '09

This summer I took the next two classes for my EdTech masters at Boise State and one of them focused on instructional design. For my final project, I designed instruction and created materials for music teachers to learn GarageBand '09. I am happy to say that the class is over (I have a few weeks to breathe before the next class begins!) and those materials are now online. Each lesson includes a video tutorial, step-by-step instructions, additional information that related to the lesson, and supporting documents. I plan on adding more lessons to the site and future additions will likely focus on an aspect of the software that goes beyond the basics.

The lessons and tutorials may be found at: http://edtech2.boisestate.edu/ferdons/503/garageband/intro.html --- UPDATE, 11/1/09: The tutorials can still be accessed through this URL, but can now also be found at http://www.ferdonmusic.com/garageband/intro.html. See my November 1st post for more info!

Once I am finished with my degree (May, 2011) I will move my GarageBand webpages to another site but they will always be linked here in the sidebar. I hope the tutorials will be of use to as many people as possible, so please feel free to pass along the link.
