DJ Lessons with Want2DJ are perfect for anyone looking to …

  1. Learn to DJ Professionally or as a hobby
  2. Get back into DJing and learn a Digital setup
  3. Improve mixing skills and build confidence

Whether you are an absolute beginner, are self-taught or used to DJ back in the day.  We are committed to helping students achieve their DJ goals.  I absolutely love working with DJs of all experience levels, ages and backgrounds and I’d really  love to help you.

We can also help with:-

  • Hardware/Software Support for MacOSX and Windows 10
  • Help and advice on what to buy and where to purchase

What can I expect from DJ Lessons with Want2DJ?

If you have your own decks and…

  1. you would like to get everything set up and working properly, or check what you have bought is good enough for what you’re looking for.
  2. you would like to improve your skills and feel confident behind the decks.

Then you will definitely benefit from DJ lessons with Want2DJ.

Not all students have the same DJ goal(s), level of experience or learn at the same pace. So we start by discussing your ideas and go through possible options to see where to focus our attention and build the lesson from there. We will then create a plan for each lesson thereafter.   How many sessions is hard to answer before we’ve had chance to work together. We just need to establish where you’re at, in relation to where you want to be.

You might benefit from one to two 2hr sessions or regular sessions on a weekly, fortnight or monthly basis.  Once we’ve established where you’re at in relation to where you want to be, we will have a better idea.  Whatever your DJ goal, experience and background, I will help you achieve a professional standard of mixing. One that you will be able to perform consistently every single time.  What I can say is… as no matter what resources you have used to date, as long as you attend your sessions, I can help to fill in any missing blanks and am 100% committed to helping you get your skills to a level you are happy with.  Possibly even help you secure and work towards a paid opportunity!

If you don’t have any DJ Equipment or music… we have everything you need to work out what you need to buy.  Where to purchase your decks and how much you can expect to pay.   Our DJ Taster Session is one of the cost effective ways to explore different hardware brands and software platforms. This can help fast-track your DJ journey to finding the right setup for you.  

From your very first session, you can start to get an idea of what you like and why whilst at the same time learning how to use everything.  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.

Whether you’d like to explore a Digital platform, CD or Turntables. Imagine walking into your very own DJ Booth and playing on some awesome DJ kit. We’ll even have some of your favourite songs ready for your first visit to the studio.  Whatever music you like – to date we have worked with Student DJ’s aged 7yrs to 61yrs. Music choices have been eclectic to say the least. Some like the current Top 40, others prefer 90s Dance anthems, Bassline, Drum & Bass, Dub-Step, House, Bassline and Happy Hardcore. Even Party Classics from the sixties, seventies and eighties.  What do you love to listen to and play? Where would you love to play it and who for?  I can’t wait to find out more about your personal favourites and help you to create a mix you can feel proud performing live, again and again.
