A. Most people find an unacceptable amount of latency with GarageBand's musical typing, so a somewhat better solution is to use the Third Party freeware product, MIDIKeys. The ultimate solution is to use a MIDI Keyboard (a controller). The M-Audio Keystation 49es is a very popular and inexpensive keyboard controller. We’ve had mixed results with version 1.8 of MIDIKeys used with GarageBand version 10 under Mac OS X 10.9 ”Mavericks.” GBv10 did not seem to work very well with MIDIKeys so we can't recommend it with this new version.
