Garageband, by Apple, may be one of the lighter-weight (and let's not forget, lower priced) music creation tools on the market, but with a little practice and know-how, you can get great product from this beginner level software. For those who are uninitiated to the world of computer audio recording, Garageband is a great program for learning.
Garageband Basics workshop will focus on the fundamentals of working with Garageband for recording and songwriting. Topics will range from setup with audio and midi interfaces through the initial setup of your project working with real audio tracks and virtual instruments. This workshop will prepare participants for a second Garageband Workshop to be held at a later date.
The Advanced Garage Band workshop will cover actual song creation from idea generation to to final product, a mixed down and mastered recording on a CD or digital format.
Teaching this class is UL at Lafayette Alumnus Chad Fouquier. He has worked as a promoter, musician, engineer and producer in the Lafayette area for the last 8 years. Most notably, he worked as a promoter at 307 Downtown, played with Keith Frank, and recent Grammy nominee Corey Ledet, and engineered recordings for both Keith Frank and Grammy winner Terrance Simien.
This workshop will take place at Tipitina's Music Office Co-Op/Lafayette, located at 203 Jefferson Street , Lafayette, LA
