">Idol on iTunes Songwriter Workshop Saturday, March 22 at 2 p.m. and Monday, March 24 at 6 p.m.
You don't have to know how to play an instrument, write a song, or even sing in tune. With GarageBand and a little inspiration from the Apple Store expert staff, you'll learn everything you need to write, compose, and record your first hit song.
This free one-hour workshop covers music-making basics and gives you songwriting tips from the pros. You'll learn about song structure, chord progression, lyrics, and just what makes a great song great. You'll also get to explore GarageBand hands-on and see how fun and easy it is to create music.
You'll leave the workshop with the knowledge, ideas, and inspiration to compose a masterpiece to enter into the American Idol Songwriting Competition. And who knows, if you win, you'll hear your song performed live on American Idol.
