You will go throught a complete walkthrough of the industry standard DJ program ‘Rekordbox’, which is used by most club DJs. Serato and DJ Pro 2 are also available to learn.
You will learn in detail how to identify and count beats, bars and phrases which can immediately help you mix tracks at the right points.

You will also learn how to connect everything so you are always in control.
Beatmatching is the first step to creating a smooth transition between two tracks. We will ensure you master all the knowledge and techniques required to beatmatch like a pro. This includes learning about about pitch and tempo matching.
Learn every step towards creating a seamlessly smooth transition between tracks.
You will cover ever step required to mix your first track. From setting up the decks and mixer correctly, to loading the track, pitch matching, beatmatching, and using the faders.
We’ll show you how to use all of the features included in Rekordbox to help you create the best playlists.
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).
At the end of the course you will record your first full mix using all the techniques and skills you have learnt thus far.
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.
