Sounds and Samples
Sampling and Sounds 2 day Course
29th & 30th October 2018 10am-3pm / £20 per person
For ages 11-17
Sound is all around us in every area of our lives and we often don’t pay attention to what can be used to make unique, inspiring and interesting music. To become a successful artist in the music industry can be difficult and to stand out from the crowd you need to be unique and original.
We would like to invite you to attend the Sampling and Sounds course at DJ School UK led by tutor and DJ Dan De Lissandri and international DJ and producer Tristan Da Cunha.
The outcomes of the course are for you to:
- develop an understanding of how to use sampling to make interesting and unique music
- learn how to use music production software and hardware to manipulate sounds and make new music
- develop creative, musical and technological skills
- collaborate with other musicians and producers
- develop artistic and creative skills and learn about music in an alternative way
- try new ideas, concepts and techniques
- take part in positive and inspirational activities
We will teach you about the different ways to sample music and sound to make music. We will look at a range of sources such as films/documentaries, sound libraries, sound FX and the sounds that are all around us. A key part of the course is for you to listen to unfamiliar genres, something they you not normally listen to including music from our past.
All you need to bring with you is comfortable clothes, a packed lunch, music you would like to sample and lots of ideas.

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.

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.

“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
