Who, Me?


Hi! I’m Patrick – the founder of The GarageBand Guide.

First things first: I’m not a professional music producer and I don’t make a living in a recording studio.

have been a musician for longer than I care to remember and have been in my fair share of recording studios over the years, though I was never brave enough to press any of the buttons….

Years ago, I was introduced to GarageBand by my then girlfriend (now fiancé Wife!) and haven’t looked back since.

I fell in love with the design, the flexibility, but most of all how easy it was to take all the crazy musical ideas and notions floating around in my brain and make some kind of sense out of them, with GarageBand.

So I got stuck in and over time learned enough to record and  produce  professional sounding Audio….

In 2011/2012  I even recorded, mixed and mastered a whole record – under the pseudonym Wiredrawn – using GarageBand.

I only wish I could’ve learned how to use it faster, which is where The GarageBand Guide comes in.

My aim is to help you hit the ground running with GarageBand, and avoid the trial and error I had to go through.

So you can master the technical stuff and get on with enjoying the creative side of things…..
