Have you ever heard of Garageband? It's software made by Apple that is just fantastic, and this afternoon I took a free class at the Apple Store in Chandler to learn more about the 2009 version.
I made a small and simple beginning to an orchestral piece. It's called My Song 3, basically the default name it gave the file. This was done in about 1 hour while I was stopped to learn new things about the software. This was a fun class!
