Scratch, Mix & Fade: Intro to Club DJ Essentials


DJs are the unsung heroes of the club scene. With their ability to "read" a crowd and their mastery of electronic gear, they weave musical narratives, controlling a club's atmosphere and motivating their audiences to get out on the dance floor. Now, in this unique 4-session class led by music scene veteran Josh Carl, you can learn the basics of those skills for yourself—then practice what you've learned in a local after-hours club!

In the first sessions you'll learn the fundamentals: what a "mix" is; introduction to the equipment; hands-on-instruction in cueing and scratching; and more. After you've learned the basics, on week #4, we will move off-site to an area club to discuss the hows and whys of music programming; how to read a crowd; getting your first DJ gig; how to deal with promoters; etc. You'll also get to check out the DJ booth, familiarize yourself with professional level equipment, and see a demo by the instructor!

Every student will receive a thumb drive of practice tracks.
