Online GarageBand lessons (Beginner)

Stuck for lockdown lesson ideas you can do from home? We’ve got you covered…

We’re making our GarageBand lessons available online so that young people can still participate in them even when we’re not able to come into their school in-person.

Our series of beginner lessons engages everyone in music – even those who struggle the most. It helps pupils to learn fundamental music skills and concepts in a fun, inclusive way. It’s been a huge hit in every school we’ve delivered it.
