This activity is for GarageBand for iPad.

Chords are the emotional support for your melody. Teaching students chord progressions is so important to model this important foundation of melody writing.

Using the Smart Instruments chord bars and Autoplay, they can explore loop-type chord patterns to underscore their chord-based melodies (taught in an other resource).

In this activity, students enter chord patterns using the Autoplay feature, changing chords when necessary to match the chord requirements. In another track, the melody can be played - sheet provided. Additional tracks can introduce drums and bass, or any other instrument.

Using the track settings, students will learn about panning, treble and bass enhancement, as well as reverb and echo. There are other features here, as well. Quantisation and graphic notation editing is also mentioned.

Saved work can be shared via email, Airdrop, as a audio file, or a GarageBand file to be worked on another device or the Mac GarageBand version. Remember, once an iPad version project file has been transferred to a Mac and modified by GarageBand for Mac, it cannot be exported back to the iPad for editing.

Enjoy and let me know your thoughts!
