Learn to play an instrument with Apple’s GarageBand application

garageband-basic-lessonsIn the new version of Apple’s iLife 09 application suite, GarageBand has received a big update and one really cool feature. Apple has added a feature to help people learn to play either the guitar or the piano.

The basic lessons are free and can be downloaded through the lesson store built into GarageBand. These lessons cover the fundamentals of playing a new instrument and guides users through learning to play a basic song.

One added feature that makes learning to play an instrument fun is Artist Lessons, which allows for the purchase of lessons for $5 apiece from major recording artists, who will teach you how to play one of their songs.

If interested, the iLife 09 suite is available through the Union Computer Store for $59.
