Start Here

Welcome to The GarageBand Guide! I’m glad to have you as part of the biggest community of GarageBand users on the web!

My mission is to get you up to speed with everything you need to know to create incredible GarageBand projects on Mac and iOS, without boring you to tears with a ton of hard to understand technical jargon.

If it’s your first time here, I know things can look a little overwhelming, so i’ve created this page – with some of my best resources – to get you started.


Step 1: Who Am I?

I’m Patrick (the dork on the right).

If you want to know a bit more about ‘my story’ and how I started The GarageBand Guide, be sure to check out the About page.

Then, drop me a note and introduce yourself – I love hearing from you guys!




Step 2: Be Part Of The Community

The GarageBand Guide is updated frequently with new stuff, so I have a few ways to keep you in the loop.

First, subscribe to my bi-weekly newsletter. Packed with useful tips and tricks for you to get your teeth into, i’ll update you when a useful new post drops as well.

If you use GarageBand on Mac, grab a copy of my hugely popular downloadable ebook ‘The Garageband Quick Start Guide‘ on the house!

If mobile music making is more your style, you can download my iOS/iPadOS focussed ‘Getting Started With GarageBand‘ ebook for free too.

Choose whichever tickles your fancy, enter your email and you’ll be all set! Your email address will never be shared and you can unsubscribe at the touch of a button.











I post news, videos, cat GIFs and links to other interesting things on Facebook. There’s a community of over 7,000 amazing people there and i’d love you to be a part of it too.



I also love creating videos! Join over 100,000 other GarageBand fanatics on Youtube and subscribe to the channel!




I love to overshare stupid pics, ‘behind the scenes’ stuff and sneaky peeks at future GarageBand Guide projects on Instagram.
