Cockburn School DJ Workshop

Cockburn SchoolWe would like to say thank you to the 21 students and staff from Cockburn School in Leeds for a fantastic day with DJ School UK. The full day of Secondary School DJ workshops at our venue rounded off a week of art activities at their school where the students produced original dance music tracks and then performed them in our night club space.

“During a summer school project 21 Cockburn students attended a workshop and DJ showcase performance at DJ School UK headquarters. All the students were key stage 3 ranging from 11-14 and had no prior DJ experience. Throughout the workshop session students received some expert training from DJ School UK’s Dan De Lissandri who was absolutely fantastic with the students and understood their learning requirements. Students were able to explore a range of DJ equipment from Pioneer CDJ’s, laptops and controllers and were able to develop mixing related skills and techniques.

The final stage of the session resulted in a music showcase performance where the students performed live in the clubroom to other participants and parents. Prizes were awarded by DJ School UK for best production skills and best DJ skills.

Overall, the students were delighted with the experience and have all asked if they can take part next year. I would personally like to say a big thank you to DJ School UK for a really rewarding and valuable experience. We will be seeing you again soon.” Mr Stewart, Music Teacher, Cockburn School
