The formula for the success of the DJ Course is the personal nature of our in-studio tuition, with groups of 8 or less learning the creative operation of DJ equipment through practical tuition and interaction.
The DJ Course deals with both creative DJ skills and understanding the workings of the industry. Initially mixing techniques are taught, and then the importance of creativity and individuality in the mix are explored, before real world club and radio DJ environments are experienced and outlined by professional guests on our exclusive tours.
As well as the essential 'learn to DJ' aspect of the course, an introduction to music production is also provided on 'Reason' software, covering the essentials of drum programming, building grooves and arranging tracks. Comparisons to the records you play are part of this, making for essential knowledge.
The DJ Course comes to an end with a chance of a lifetime opportunity to mix live at one of Manchester's leading clubs. In a private session, behind closed doors, students are shown the layout and workings of the sound system first-hand, gaining valuable DJ experience.
To achieve the 'Industry' recognised DJ qualification practical assessments are made and you are encouraged to compile a demo CD in the studio as a way of demonstrating your skills.
