GarageBand for Mac

 Create. Record. Mix. Share.

Farrington School of Music is excited to announce that it is now working with Apple Education and its teacher program for GarageBand. We are offering recording education and sessions for all of our students.

Capturing a beautiful performance on a recording is one of the greatest experiences a musician can have. Owning a good recording allows students to share what they have worked on with family, friends and other musicians.

GarageBand is a fully equipped music creation studio right inside your Mac with a complete sound library that includes instruments, presets for guitar and voice, and an incredible selection of session drummers and percussionists.
