Composing with GarageBand
Starts September 11th – Register Now!
GarageBand inspires and motivates students to create their own music.
They are engaged and motivated while learning with these tools from the very first class, and they can create their own music, no matter how much experience they have.
In Composing with GarageBand, we explore the different feature and developments in GarageBand for iPad or Mac, including “Live Loops”, which is a brand new way of thinking about music creation.
Students love GarageBand
Students will also create their own compositions from scratch, using all available features of the software.
Just some of the Features we focus on include:
- Drums & Drummer
- Smart Drums
- Recording Vocals
- Song Forms
- Live Loops & Loops Palletes
- Rock Guitar
- Jazz Combo
- Creating Loops
- And so much more
We’ll use all elements of GarageBand for Mac to create exciting music, and students will use composition as a vehicle for learning other aspects of musicianship as well, such as instrumentation, form, melody and harmony.
By the end students can use GarageBands in-built video syncing tools to create their own movie soundtrack.
We show students how GarageBand is not just a ‘play thing’ but an important music creation tool.
This is not only fun and exciting for students, but really teaches important musicianship elements.
Students work through 20+ distinct lessons, which consist of video plus an assignment sheet to learn the tools and use them to create each lesson.
iPad or Mac laptop with GarageBand installed is required.

Terrific job connecting with my son
My 10 year old son started taking piano lessons with Deanna Maio at Confident Voice Studio a couple of months ago, and she has done a terrific job connecting with him and helping him advance his piano practice. We highly recommend Deanna!
She helped me find my true voice
Before I worked with Deanna my singing voice did not feel natural. She has helped me find my true voice.
Deanna is that she is keenly focused on your particular needs as a singer, and is able to assist you in reaching your particular goals.
Working with Deanna, I gained confidence, strength of voice, as well as greater range.
Engaging, Kind, Understanding, and Informative
Could not recommend her highly enough!
Deanna is FANTASTIC! We honestly went to another piano teacher with our son previously and he was not engaged. She is patient, energetic and consistent – he is SO excited every time it is lesson day. Could not recommend her highly enough!
We Love Her!
My 4-year-old son has been taking lessons with Deanna for the past 6 months. I am a preschool teacher. I was immediately impressed by how Deanna was able to connect with my child and work with him with such calmness and ease.
My son tried many different classes and has had many different instructors. Deanna has by far been his favorite instructor and he is always excited and ready for class.
The program she uses is wonderful, it introduces children to sequencing and patterns, fine motor skills and development and so much more. I highly highly recommend classes with Deanna. We love her!
Deanna’s a Confidence Booster
Before studying with Deanna… I was less confident overall in my singing, my voice cracked in a lot of places and my range was a bit narrower. The most difficult part about that was singing in front of others and not being quite sure what notes were going to come out of my mouth.
The thing about Deanna is that she is very welcoming, supportive and makes you feel comfortable. My biggest insight learned during our lessons was that it is possible to get my voice to be more predictable, the importance of proper breathing and that it really is helpful to record and listen to your own voice. And this was valuable because it’s a confidence booster especially during performances.
I gained confidence, comfort and knowledge about singing. I’d recommend Deanna to singers that want to stretch the current limits of their voice and feel more confident singing. Thanks so much for this great experience!
He races through the door to begin the lessons
From the get-go Deanna’s been a great piano teacher to our 5 year old and each week he races through the door to begin the lessons. It’s only been a few months but we can sense his growing understanding of how the piano works. Anyone who helps my kid (or anyone’s kid) learn to play and love music gets 5 stars.
