Effects with GarageBand for iPad
Students created an audio recording project using GarageBand on iPad to learn more about different audio effects.
Learning Objectives for this lesson:
- Create an audio recording project including drums and loops.
- Understand different audio effects.
- Apply audio effects to a recording.
This project allows students to be more creative about how they learn subject content.
Rather than just research or rote learn definitions of different audio effects, students were challenged to be more creative and learn new skills by recording their definitions, applying effects and adding music to create a unique and personalised project.
Students demonstrated their learning by creating an audio recording project with GarageBand on iPad. They began by researching definitions of different audio processing effects.
Then, they recorded their definitions in separate tracks in a GarageBand project. They then applied the relevant effect to each definition. For example, adding an echo effect to their recorded spoken definition of ‘echo’.

This lesson formed part of my Apple Teacher Portfolio as an ‘Explore’ lesson, but could be easily adapted and used as an ‘Apply’ lesson depending on the age, skill level, positioning of the activity, and has lots of opportunities for extension activities.
I used this lesson with my 3rd Year Music class (14-15 years old), but it could easily be used in different contexts with other age groups too!
