Learn to DJ Course

£129.00

This is where you actually learn to DJ

On hour is great to try things out but learning to DJ requires time investment, there is no quick fix. By the end of this 8 week course though, you will be able to beatmix and the foundations to your DJing career will have been laid.

Over the sessions we cover everything that you need to know to set you own your path to becoming a DJ. The backbone to it all is mentored tuition whilst you play the kit. With fine adjustment and help, one to one tuition will help you achieve your goals far faster than any youtube video. DJing is about gettting ‘hands on’. There is no other way to learn.

You’ll learn about the kit used by DJs across the world. Headphones, carts, turntables, mixers, laptops and the ever so important ‘performance’ secrets that are often kept under wraps. You’ll learn about levels, cross fading, gain controls, how to cue, how to fade and the all important theory of mixing. Its a dark art but it shines bright!

You can bring your own music or use ours, its entirely up to you. In the early stages we use a few tried and tested tunes to get you going but once you have mastered the basics, you can experiment a bit more. You can use Vinyl and MP3 as we have the facility to play both.

By the end of the 8 weeks, you will have the groundwork laid for you to get some kit and start to hone your personal style and skills. The hardest part is getting the foundations right and this is this course is about, getting it right from the outset.
