This course will take you from complete beginner, to a professional class DJ.
By the end of the course you can expect to have a complete understanding of most DJ equipment, including industry standard Pioneer CDJs and DJMs.
You will also gain a profound understanding of the art of DJing, be fluent in the techniques and practices used by top DJs, have the ability to perform a set in any situation and seamlessly mix any genre of music.
Mixing tracks harmonically is one of the most powerful mixing techniques. Understand how to mix tracks which are harmonically related can turn a good DJ to a great one, therefore you will learn about Keys and using programs and shortcuts to help you find tracks which are harmonically related.
EQs are a vital part of mixing, and when used well, they can allow you to create mashups on the spot, as well as improve the sound of your transitions drastically. Therefore you will learn the theory behind how EQs work and how they can be used across multiple mix routines.
We’ll teach you how to utilise loops for multiple reasons (ranging from extending tracks to very creative effects).
You’ll learn to set up and use Hot Cues, as well as Hot Cue Banks to create incredible remixes on the spot. There are also various other reasons you can use Hot cues and we will cover them all.
We’ll show you how Beat FX can be used to make a transition sound a lot smoother, or even to add spacial effects to tracks.
Colour FX are the most commonly used type of effect on a DJ mixer, and you will learn the theory behind how the work, as well as all the different ways you can use them.
You’ll learn multiple different mixing and transitioning routines so you can be ready to mix any genre and any track like a professional.
Many genres of music are more suited to more old school style mixing routines which involve the use of the cross fader, spinbacks and scratching. We cover all of these techniques from the ground up so you can become proficient in using them.
The final few lessons are focused on ensuring you can put all the skills and theory you have learnt into practice.
We’ll show you how to use all of the features included in Rekordbox to help you create the best playlists.
You will record a few DJ mixes and start self promotion on social media and the best DJ platforms.
We have built a music industry execution plan that has worked for all our students who have seriously put it into action so far. We will walk you through the entire plan and teach you how to begin landing gigs and getting paid as a DJ!
You do not require any equipment for this course as we have everything we need in our studio. However, to get the most out of the course, we will recommend that you buy a DJ controller so that you can practice at home in your own time. Sufficient DJ controllers start at £150, so they don’t have to break the bank! We will talk you through all of this during our lessons, but if you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Lessons have a duration of two hours and can be scheduled for any available time throughout the week. Available times range daily from 10am to 10pm. You can either schedule them yourself via our calendar system (you’ll receive an email after purchasing a course), or you can get in touch with us via email or phone and we’ll schedule them for you.
