Online GarageBand lessons (Advanced/Intermediate)

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

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

This programme for advanced/intermediate levels 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.
