Electronic Music DJ Course

 

Our split-level Electronic Music DJ course gets you directly into the club, if you can prove your mettle and are up to the challenge, that is. Every single student who has taken the course in LA has gone on to perform in the club, and we are looking forward to seeing what our NY crew can do! Our Electronic Music DJ course is designed for absolute beginners, as well as those who have already played around at home, who would like to learn proper techniques on the latest professional equipment and brands such as Pioneer and Native Instruments, as taught by our expert roster of Electronic DJ instructors. Group sizes are capped at only four students to ensure maximum playing time for each student. If you are looking to play electronic music genres such as Trance, Main Room, Trap, and Progressive, then this is the course for you!  To introduce our new 2017 genre-specific DJ courses we have cut the original price by over 20% for the entire year!

We have made this extensive course distinct from our Underground DJ course to ensure that students are grouped in a like-minded environment with instructors who have practical experience in the Electronic music scene. This means no dirty looks from fanatic techno instructors for playing a song with a vocal in it! We believe that learning to DJ should be FUN, not frustrating! Part of this means focusing on the music YOU want to play.

For students coming to NYC from out of town to take the course, please keep in mind that our club night is not always scheduled immediately following the course end date. If you are unable to make your scheduled club night, we can still include you in a future lineup!
