  • DJ Workshop, grades 6-8 and 9-12 [NEW]

    Learn the fundamentals of DJing along with its history, culture, and theory in this 5-day class. Students format and organize their music library and create playlists in preparation for mixing using Pioneer’s CDJs and Rekordbox software, the industry standard. Students learn the origins of DJing and the genres/sub-genres of dance music, with each student researching and presenting one for the class. We also cover basic music theory and beatmatching, utilizing their math and critical thinking skills. Students develop their performance skills as they compile and practice mixing a DJ set, culminating in a final “show” performed for their classmates and recorded. Students work at their own pace and all levels of experience in music are welcome.

    Students must bring their own headphones (wired, no bluetooth), laptop preferred.
