DJ Course Level 1 - One Month


Mondays and Tuesdays 6.30pm - 10pm

Course Outline

The 1 month DJ Course level 1 is suitable for both vinyl and digital DJ's alike and is suitable for beginners or those with some experience who want to improve their skills.
 The level 1 course is spread across four weeks with two sessions per week, this gives you plenty of time between sessions to practice either at home or in our studio. Practice time in the studio is included in the course, and there is always a tutor on hand to help and advice. The SubBass DJ learning zone is totally unique as we have individual DJ booths for you to work in during the course, as-well as the main teaching area. We are the only training center with this kind of facility, and means we can always monitor your progress as you play out loud with speakers instead of trying to practice in headphones in the same room as other students like many other schools.

With a very small class size you will receive the tutor's full attention and won't feel crowded or rushed, you will also have your own equipment for the entire duration of the course.
 The focus on the course is making sure you have a clear understanding of basic to intermediate DJing techniques which can be the hardest to grasp, as when you are new to learning anything it is important that you understand the fundamentals. The SubBass level one and level two courses have the same content as our DJ Complete course but with evening instead of daytime sessions.
