    Here is a very simple example of the type of work you can do with this. By using your pets, pictures, video clips and any other objects or toys around the house that you can use as characters.
    The Recycling Rap
    Lesson 1:
    Open GarageBand
    Select the loops option from menu.

    Selecting Instruments
    Open the instrument menu and choose a drum beat by dragging it into the tracks region.

    {Screen_shot_2011-01-11_at_8.28.50_PM.png}
    Experiment with different instrument types by dragging them into the track area and combining them with your drum beat(s).
    You may want to combine quite a few different loops when composing the music for your rap.
    Editing Tracks
    Tracks can be edited by clicking on the scissors icon to bring up the editor region. You can select areas to delete in this region as well as move, delete and adjust the pitch of notes.

    {Screen_shot_2011-01-11_at_8.33.31_PM.png}
    Tracks can also be dragged around in the track area using the mouse.
    There are different ways to adjust the volume of your tracks.
    Volume Adjustments
    The volume slider
    {Screen_shot_2011-01-11_at_8.37.02_PM.png}
    The Automation Option
    {Screen_shot_2011-01-11_at_8.36.57_PM.png}
    {Screen_shot_2011-01-11_at_8.36.45_PM.png}
    If you choose this last option you will no longer be able to use the slider, but you will also have greater control over the track volume, by clicking on the track volume line, adding nodes and raising and lowering them to adjust the volume.
    Using the Piano Keyboard and Editing Notes
    You can bring up a piano keyboard to help you compose your own music using various instruments.
    {Screen_shot_2011-01-11_at_8.47.09_PM.png} {Screen_shot_2011-01-11_at_8.49.02_PM.png}
    Try selecting notes you have recorded and moving them around, shortening and deleting them.
    {Screen_shot_2011-01-11_at_8.49.18_PM.png}
    Pitch and Voices
    It is also possible to adjust the pitch of your voice, either making it lower or higher than normal. Be careful, if you raise or lower it too much it will be difficult to understand what you are saying.
    {Screen_shot_2011-01-11_at_8.48.24_PM.png}
    To add your voices to a track, click on New Basic Track.
    {Screen_shot_2011-01-11_at_8.41.06_PM.png}
    Mute the other tracks and use the record button to record your voice.

    Exporting
    Once you are happy with your composition, export it as an mp3 to your computer.
