Highlights

  • One-on-one tuition
  • Hands on experience with professional gear

Ever wanted to be a DJ but didn't know what was going on in the booth? This DJ mixing taster course will teach you the tricks of the trade with a one-on-one session in our inner city record store. Learn beat mixing, scratching, blending and track selection from working DJs with years of experience!

What's Included?

  • All equipment, 2 turntable, mixer, speakers
  • Tuition from a working Dj with years of real life experience
  • Choose your own style of music

Whether you just want to know how it's done, feel the urge to dabble or are seriously considering DJ'ing as a career path, there are a few fundamental things about mixing which remain relevant across all musical genres and formats. During this DJ Mixing Taster Course you will learn these things exclusively on vinyl records. Mixing was invented on vinyl and you can only truly understand the basics behind DJ'ing by using it; without digital readouts to distract you or SYNC to help you! Knowledge and skills gained while mixing vinyl can then be easily transferred to digital media.

You will spend your two-hour one-on-one DJ lesson in a real, live record store, surrounded by both classics and the latest releases. This is your chance to put your hands on real records and mix them, all the while gaining insights into where and how mixing came about. You will learn what BPM is and why certain plugs must go certain ways. You will learn about what the industry calls train-wrecks, crowd pleasers and much, much more! Your teacher is a working Sydney DJ with years of experience. Topics covered · Tools of the trade - intro to turntables & DJ mixer · P.A. set-up – signal flow – input options – troubleshooting · Handling a record – cueing - basic beat matching techniques & exercises · Beat mixing transitions – using crossfader, headphones & monitor · Intro to music structure – bars/BpM/intro/outro – identify cue points
