Courses to suit every age, ability and electronic music preferences.
The Four Four courses will take you through a journey from complete beginner to becoming an experienced DJ with the skills needed to produce and perform your own incredible set. Develop your understanding of techniques and software as well as equipment and rig preparation.
Our experienced tutors have a vast background in the industry and will not only show you how to become a DJ, but how to become a successful one.
Always liked the idea of turning the decks but not known where to start? Our DJ Taster course will guide you through the techniques you need to start mixing straight away. After an initial introduction about the DJ industry, you’ll start to cover the different stages of mixing, how to set up your decks, how each piece of equipment works and methodical beat matching.
This course would suit those who have never had any formal training and are looking for an introduction into DJ-ing. Immerse yourself in the Four Four ethos and push your skills to the next level. The DJ Taster is a 4-hour course for groups of up to 8 students.
Whether you are a complete beginner or want to break free from your life as a bedroom DJ, this course will give you a more in-depth understanding of the techniques used by successful DJs. A step up from our Taster course by allowing you to explore more effects including hot-cueing, looping and filtering, and when to use them.
You will also cover timing, keeping tracks in sync, pitch correction, phasing and drop mixing. You will also learn about digital DJing and controllers, Rekordbox, Traktor, Serato and Midi integration. The Weekend course is split into two 4-hour sessions over a Saturday and Sunday, with capacity for up to 6 students.
