At DJ School UK we’ll teach you the skills and knowledge you need to become a DJ and performer. You’ll use professional industry-standard DJ equipment in a brand new studio. You’ll plan and rehearse a performance in a working nightclub then show off your skills at the Breeze International Youth Festival on Briggate, Leeds. We’re looking for 20 young people aged between 13 and 19 years old to be committed to the project. It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or have experience, you can take part. This course is free You can learn how to:
  • Mix records, CDs and digital music
  • Scratch/be a turntablist?
  • Set up, use and maintain equipment
  • Produce and take part in a rehearsal in a nightclub
  • Perform your group production on Briggate in Leeds
  • Use these sessions to complete parts of your Arts Award.
Every young person involved will leave with a CD of their work and an experience they will remember for the rest of their lives. The sessions start on Tuesday 12th March 2013 at 6.00pm to 7.30pm for 13-15 yr olds and 7.30pm to 9.00pm for 16 – 19 yr olds.
