Apple recently released an update for Garageband that adds many new features, many of which have excellent potential for classroom use. We are currently exploring the new features, and hope to incorporate some of them in a new edition of our ever-popular ‘Teaching Music with Garageband for iPad’ textbook, pencilled for release in summer/autumn 2016.

All the references to the ‘instrument’ button now refer to this icon .

Thanks and happy composing!
