You will need an USB CD drive (CDR, CDRW) to be able to burn a CD on a Mac, since modern Macs no longer ships with a CD drive. Plug it in to the Mac before beginning.

  1. Open the Music app.
  2. Pull down the File menu and choose New -> Playlist.
  3. Label the playlist something like “CD” and then create the playlist of songs you want to burn to a CD, you can do this by dragging and dropping music into the playlist, or right-clicking on music and choosing “Add to Playlist”.
  4. When finished creating the CD playlist, pull down the “File” menu again and choose “Burn Playlist to Disc”.
  5. Configure it as an Audio CD if you want it to be able to play in a standard CD player, and click “Burn”.
  6. Insert a blank CD into the CD-RW drive and let your Mac burn the music CD.

Once it’s finished, eject the disc, and you’re ready to play the CD in most CD players.
