I decided to do an experiment with my Introduction to Electronic Music classes. I created an entire unit that I would give very little “live” explanation about the assignments but provided students with detailed assignment sheets, complete with graphics, and corresponding video explaining and demonstrating how to do each assignment in the software. All the teaching and work would be done in class just as always except, this time, they would be listening and watching me explain and demonstrate via video screen-cast. The unit I chose was the Final Project. Suffice to say, things are much better than expected!
The 10 session course will be in the Standard Format and run for 11 consecutive weeks, skipping Thanksgiving week. In 10 sessions you’ll not only learn the basics of GarageBand but how to use it to teach basic music and composition skills to your students. You leave the course with all the materials you need to teach an introductory course using music technology including 17 lesson plans, student assignment sheets, handouts and worksheets for the lessons.
