Absolute Beginners (No Equipment) 

Imagine walking into your very own DJ Booth and working on some awesome DJ kit. Whether you’d prefer to learn on Digital, CD or Turntable, we can have some of your favourite songs ready for your first visit to the studio.  You don’t need any equipment to get started as we will introduce you to a few different software/controller combinations for you to work on.

Purchasing your own decks… Sounds great doesn’t it.. Well yes if you know how to use them properly and understand how they should perform!  Maybe you haven’t a clue where to start or how much you should pay? Well that’s where I come in.  As tempting as it maybe, my advice would be to hold off buying anything, just until you have explored some of the different hardware brands and software platforms.  As right from the first session, you will start to get an idea of what you do and don’t like. You will also learn how to use the DJ equipment properly. So by the time you are ready to make your purchase. You can do so with ease and with confidence.  By purchasing something that not only fits your budget, but also matches your workflow and DJ style.

Improve your skills

If you’ve ever wondered why something you’re doing is not working as you’d expect and/or you just want to feel confident behind the decks… then you will definitely benefit from DJ lessons with Want2DJ!

No matter what level you are at, what resources you have learned from, we can fill in any missing blanks and help you overcome any challenge. We can help you achieve a professional standard of mixing. One that you will be able to perform consistently every single time.  

How long this takes is down to you. Until we start working together and I can understand your competence/confidence levels. It is difficult to know how many sessions you might need.  That said, whilever you commit to attending, I am 100% committed to helping all my students get results. We’ll discuss all all your ideas and the options available to you and create a plan for working together on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis.
