What equipment do I need for DJ lessons?

DJing doesn’t have to break the bank. It all depends on your budget and personal preferences.

All you need is a laptop so you can run DJ software. If you get a bit creative, you can totally get the hang of mixing and blending tracks without splurging on extra gear like DJ controllers, speakers, or turntables right away. If you’re looking to start with some more equipment right away, we can assist you in finding affordable purchase or rental options!

Can I choose the genre of music I want to learn to DJ?

With our DJ lessons, you have the freedom to choose the genre of music that speaks to you. Whether it’s electronic dance music (EDM), hip-hop, house, techno, or any other genre, choosing what resonates with you can truly shape your style. By focusing on any specific genre, you’ll dive deep into its unique structures, techniques, and culture. However, if you are interested in becoming a paid professional in the music industry, we do recommend learning to mix as many genres as you can.

What topics are covered in the DJ lessons?

In our DJ lessons, you’ll learn essential skills such as beat matching, mixing, music theory, cueing, and using effects. You’ll also dive into some genre-specific techniques, brush up on your performance skills, learn a bit about recording and editing. All geared towards helping you find your own style whether you want to be a paid proffessional or a hobbyist. We’re all about customizing each lesson to fit your goals and dreams, making sure you get the most personalized guidance and instruction possible.

Are online DJ courses any good?

At Dark Mountain Music, we highly prioritize in-person lessons. This way, your instructor can offer instant, hands on feedback as DJing can have a lot of twists and turns (literally). However, we do also recognize that it isn’t always feasible. That’s why, like most DJ schools, we offer high-quality online learning alternatives to ensure accessibility for all aspiring DJs.

WHY LEARN TO DJ?

MUSIC APPRECIATION

DJing nurtures musical appreciation by immersing individuals in the intricacies of rhythm, melody, and structure, fostering a deeper understanding and appreciation for various genres and styles through hands-on interaction with music.

POTENTIAL INCOME

DJing is one of the highest paying professions in the music industry! While beginners may start with modest earnings, experienced DJs can earn substantial income from club residencies, private events, festivals, music production, merchandise sales, lessons, and sponsorships.

MEMORY IMPROVEMENT

DJing can improve memory as DJs often need to remember song structures, cue points, BPMs, and audience preferences, enhancing cognitive skills over time. All that brainpower you’re using can actually help improve your overall memory with regular practice. Keep at it, and you’ll see some real improvement over time.
