Introduction to DJing

Person Playing Dj Turntable

A free 6 week DJ skills and techniques programme for 12 year old students and above.

DJ’ing is a fantastic hobby and for some develops into a dream career! The ability to control and be creative with music and express yourself is an amazing skill and somewhat of an art form. Just as with playing a musical instrument, DJ’s sometimes specialise in specific areas of the subject which we will explore.

This course uses Traktor DJ 2 (Free software) for PC/Mac/Tablet and we will be exploring the techniques used to perform a 'set' of music, developing the most common skill used to mix music called beat matching and also explore the theories of 'ebb and flow', cue points, looping, tonal play, FX manipulation and so much more to create more interesting mixes.

Open to all 12 -18 year olds in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly who are interested in DJ production and techniques.  Each class is limited to 12 students.

Applicants will need the following to participate:

Existing IT equipment - a personal computer or laptop (Mac or PC)
Traktor DJ 2 - Free download (https://www.native-instruments.com/en/products/traktor/dj-software/traktor-dj-2/)
Zoom Conferencing - Installing is not required but would be an advantage.
