I have been taking singing lessons with the absolutely amazing Julia for almost a year now and my experience has been wonderful! Julia is a fantastic teacher. I have grown so much in my time with her and I'm looking forwarded to continuing to push my vocal boundaries with her help. I recently started piano with her as well and I'm loving every minute. Julia is professional, patient, and most importantly, inspiring. My lessons are my favourite day of the week.

Julia is so great! As an adult learner I was worried about not being quick like the kids. Julia is very patient with me and if she's frustrated she never, ever shows it!! Daniel runs an excellent business. Very professional and quick, open communication. 10/10 recommend.

I LOVE Dark Mountain Music! I get to see Julia for voice lessons and she has helped me so much with my confidence and ability to sing again! I had taken a year off from singing due to health related things and I was definitely nervous to start again but she was so kind and encouraging and made it a very fun hobby for me to enjoy again! Thank you Julia!!

Daniel is exceptional at Customizing Lessons to Suit my son & I. Out learning speed and Talent are different so Daniel adapts to that easily. He also communicates well with us during and as well as outside our lesson times. I feel he offers us great value and convenience. We are grateful for how much he has helped us. top top it all off, he is genuinely a nice person.

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 there any age restrictions for enrolling in DJ lessons?

We recommend ages 13 and up for our DJ lessons as they can cover some fairly in-depth topics. However, we don’t have strict age restrictions.

This recommendation is just based on what we commonly see from students progressions over the years. We totally get that everyone is different, so we’re always open to chatting about options for younger students too. If you’re looking to sign up a younger student, just shoot us a message and we’ll adjust accordingly!

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.
