DJ 101 Course

Learn how to DJ electronic music on our DJ 101 Course

The quickest way to learn how to DJ electronic music, is to be taught in group lessons, so you can interact not only with an instructor, but with your fellow learners on part one of our comprehensive DJ course at the first dedicated Electronic Music DJ School in LA. Unlike our beginners music production courses which are for all genres of music, we specialize in DJing on the electronic music circuit. Suitable for complete beginners, and learners who have played around at home, and want to get serious and learn the latest innovative software and techniques from a professional DJ, with a track record playing top venues all over the world. At the end of part two of course – DJ Course 201, you will be invited to play out in the Gallery at arguably the best club in LA, the Exchange on a Friday night if you make the grade and are accepted after submitting your mix. We have a 100% record so far!
