Course Outline

The Weekend DJ Course level one is a great DJ crash course for those at the beginner level who want to DJ any genre. We will start with the basics and make sure you gain a good understanding of pitch matching, beat mixing, music structure, phrasing and mixing board techniques.
 The weekend course has the same course content as our 1 month course, but is taught at a slightly quicker pace and is a little more condensed.

But with a small class size you will have plenty of time to digest all the techniques and we will make sure you go home with a full understanding of what you should be practicing and working on. The SubBass studio is full of the very latest DJing equipment including Pioneer CDJ's, Serato Controllers, Traktor S4 Controllers as well as a range of mixing boards and FX units from Pioneer and Allen & Heath. So during your course you will experience and learn to use a broad spectrum of DJing equipment.
