Hi Keith, 

It depends on what he's recording, Garage band has instruments built in so that you can "play" them and generate new tracks, if that's what he's looking for then he'll be disappointed in what "worldorchrome" has to offer at the moment I think. If on the other hand he is looking to take pre-recorded tracks and have an audio editor, Audacity (the old audio open source workhorse)  has a chrome app that would allow him to do all those things. Import tracks, export finished tracks, and a pretty robust set of editing tools all for free. 
Hope that helps.

Hiya folks.

I have a Principal who has asked questions that seem to need an integration response instead of a technical response (of which I am apt to provide) for a music teacher who has been identified as moving from Mac laptop to Chromebook.  I was wondering if there was someone out there who supports music curriculum within the Googlesphere/Chromebook environment that might be able to chime in with some answers or perspective.

...our music teacher, identified the following needs of his device:  1) being able to play cds   2) being able to record music (he uses garage band) using multiple tracks and generating music electronically to accompany  3) a way to import and or create  music tracks and share them easily (he creates files which he emails as attachments -- I'm thinking this could happen in drive.

The first question I see as easily met by providing an external/portable CD/DVD player that can connect to our presentation devices (projector, Promethean Board, classroom speakers).  Really it is number 2 and 3 that I was looking for help with.

Thanks in advance.  On or off list is fine.

Keith
