Electronic Music DJ Course

Our split-level Electronic Music DJ course includes your very own slot in the Gallery at The Exchange nightclub in Downtown LA at our club night if you make the grade and want to be thrown in the deep end. So far not one person has not made the grade! Our Electronic Music DJ course is suitable for complete beginners and learners who have played around a bit before at home and want to learn the right way on the latest professional touch screen equipment by brands such as Pioneer and Native Instruments from our superior roster of Electronic Music DJ instructors in groups of no more than four. If you wish to learn to play popular genres of electronic music such as Trap, Progressive, Main Room or Trance on a Vegas-type circuit, this Electronic Music DJ course is for you! Learning how to DJ should be FUN – not frustrating! Also, our genre-specific DJ courses are new for 2017 and we’ve slashed the old 2016 price by over 20% for all of 2017!

This course is fully comprehensive; the differences between this course and our Underground DJ course are the music you will have in common with your fellow learners, and your like-minded instructor will have experience in this popular electronic music scene. You will not be getting dirty looks from a too-cool-for-school techno DJ instructor if you play a song with a vocal in it! Before we were fortunate enough to have the demand to run genre-specific DJ courses, our generic courses often resulted in instructors who could never be suitable for all of the learners’ music tastes; you had to be lucky to get the right instructor. Now we are thrilled to be able to offer fully comprehensive, genre-specific DJ courses!

Please note that our club night is not always scheduled straight after your course, so if you’re coming to LA from out of town, please bear this in mind. If you can’t make our club night but wish to be in the lineup on a future date, we can make it happen!
