Through my many years as a Disc-Jockey* (also known as “DJ”), I have developed techniques that have enabled me to perform in a way no other DJ can. I’m always thinking what will make a performance better. The first thing that comes to mind is creativity, then showmanship…but it all has to start with basic skills. Unfortunately, in these days of technology, most aspiring DJs, and even professional ones haven’t taken the time to learn what a DJ is truly about. Without this understanding it’s hard to know who you are as a DJ. Most often, technique suffers. This is why I have made it my mission to educate DJs on how to become the best they can be.
With my History of the DJ classes students learn about the evolution of the DJ. The evolution of the DJ as the center of focus in today’s musical atmosphere has been defined by a succession of events dating back to ancient times. Utilizing actual Victrolas and DJ gear of yesterday and today, we are able to capture their attention and stimulate their imagination, thereby increasing their aptitude and literacy through the appreciation of the DJ. Combined with Technique, Music Appreciation and fundamental DJ Instruction, there is no educational factor not covered.
Topics of Instruction:
- So You Want To Be A DJ (Basic Instruction)
- History of the DJ (Features my DJ Exhibit: SPIN – Evolution of the DJ)
- Developing Your Technique (Creating your DJ brand)
- Music Appreciation From a 21st Century Perspective – (How music is created and appreciated in the 21st century)
