Sessions in Schools from £1.36 per child
We bring everything required to deliver at your school.
Each booking must be a minimum of 2 hours. In that time we can deliver 3*4o minute sessions.
Our fees relate to how long we are on your premises – during that time you choose what activities you want us to deliver from the following:
DJ Taster session:
This is an engaging session where each student will take a turn to experience the DJ equipment.
The session delivers a basic understanding of the Pulse, Tempo, Beat, Counting In, and offers opportunities to discuss Dynamic, Harmony, Copyright and Intellectual Property
We can deliver this format to up to 15 young people every 40 minutes.
Engaging, motivating and inspiring demonstrations for whole classes or assembly:
Talk to us about possible themes including – DIY culture, Anti violence through HIPHOP or introducing the “Pulse” in music.
Please note this is not a “hands-on” session. To deliver this session to a whole class we do not have time to let the students have a turn. Occasionally and at our discretion we may invite some of the students to get involved. This will depend on the behaviour and circumstances of each class.
Get “hands-on” with the experience of DJing:
This is an intensive and engaging session where each student will use the DJ equipment to produce a basic mix.

We can deliver this format to up to 8 young people every 40 minutes.

Book multiple weeks of delivery for your SEN, EBD, SMEH or other groups and we will support their journey to accreditation.

I’m attending university in Bristol to study Electronic Music Production. I immensely appreciate the support that Dan and Jim gave me in the early stages. I honestly believe I could have lacked the confidence to enter this career path if I had not attended DJ School.
It was a Really good Experience yesterday i Really Enjoyed it too. And i Really Enjoyed doing Decks #DJ #Decks #YEAH
When working with children and young people of all ages they are patient, supportive, encouraging, use clear and informative language when giving instructions, and always put the joy of music-making and music-giving at the forefront of what they do. They are a valuable asset to our hub and to the city as a whole
Jim was incredibly patient with me as, with my autism, I was keen to try and achieve things quickly, rather than take things a step at a time and perfect my skills over time. It was always a real pleasure coming to the lessons and I really looked forward to them each time.
Without your skills it would be impossible to run projects and even harder to access difficult to reach and vulnerable young people… I assure you what you are doing is thoroughly appreciated, respected and invaluable to all parties concerned. Again can I emphasise mine and young people’s appreciation for what you do and I look forward to all future work with yourself.
I believe we need more recognition urgently of DJ-based education as a valuable avenue for music education more broadly. I am passionate about the difference DJing can make in the classroom. Pete Dale (senior Lecturer in Music at Manchester Metropolitan University and author of “Engaging Students with Music Education: DJ decks, urban music and child-centred learning”The difference DJ education makes.
“I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly music, for the patterns in music and all the arts are the keys to learning.”- PlatoWhy Music?
Music is an integral part of students’ daily lives, and the vast majority possess large personal libraries and use digital music devices and services. – Alyssa M. Batula, Drexel University 2012Music is integral
Even before computers were useful tools for creating music, the 1980’s urban Hip- Hop movement provided ways for young people without musical training to compose and create music. – Alyssa M. Batula, Drexel University 2012Using the turntable to make music:
You can grab any type of music and use it as a percussive instrument – Mixmaster MikeUsing the deck as an instrument
