We run courses from our purpose built studio in the Yorkshire Dance Building in Leeds City Centre, or we can come to you.
From experience and statistical analysis we see that young people develop personal learning and thinking skills plus self-confidence, self-efficacy and self-esteem through musical activities. They are especially motivated and engaged in DJ related activities. DJing signposts young people to the wider world of instrumentation and singing plus extends their knowledge of musical genres and shows them the approach of the artist in problem-solving.
We tailor our DJ Workshops to suit the needs of your group. From primary school assemblies to G.C.S.E. music curriculum boosters, cultural days, team building days, treat days, Occupational Therapy, youth offending teams, Arts Awards and the Duke of Edinburgh’s Scheme.

“All children fully involved in the session and interested throughout, all able to ask questions and have them answered, excellent session.”
“Some of the children didn’t want to try at first but by the end of the session had taken over the decks.”
“I saw a change in attitude, communication and effort in the short time the children were DJing.”
- “Just a quick message to say thanks for all of your efforts at the 6k residential. It was a massively successful weekend. The outcomes spoke for themselves in the fact that we have a bunch of young peeps still absolutely buzzing from their experience and have progressed their skills and knowledge. These things cannot be done without the hard work from yourselves. Lets hope we can do it again next year! Thanks again.” Matt Burrows - Youth Arts Co-ordinator (County Wide Projects), Connecting Youth Culture, Continuing Education Unit, North Yorkshire County Council.
- “Thanks for all your work on the project – you’re a gem.” Sue Walker - Wise Up Arts – Feedback following a Bronze Arts Award course with a Youth Offending Team in Halifax.
- The workshop was a great success and the children really enjoyed it. They were pleased to have a go on the decks and do some mixing which was great for some of the boys in that particular class. We were really pleased with how you chose songs for the 90s era which tied in great with a themed day. Overall the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and we will keep you in mind if anything else comes up in the next coming year. Thank you for sending me the link too. The children will enjoy listening to it. K. Edwards, Queensway Primary School, Leeds.
- Thank you SO much for tonight Jim, it has to be said you are awesomely fantastic. The guys were really chilled out and gave good feedback at the end. Can’t wait for next week.George Dickinson, Targeted Youth Support Worker, Tockwith Youth Centre. You fitted in wonderfully, the young people have enjoyed you being there and the access to your teaching and skills. In addition to this you have helped pave the way for a resident DJ opportunity at the Club.
