DJ Classes

Announcing our brand new fortnightly DJ Classes!

Learn the art of DJing with the Centre for Music Performance‘s new DJ Classes! Discover beatmatching, transitions, effects, sampling and much more with this brand-new initiative. Classes will be led by local professional DJ, Alex Giddens.

Classes are offered at two levels – beginners welcome, and intermediate/advanced. Equipment is provided, but bring your own headphones.

DJ Controllers and all-in one systems are provided, so you’ll have everything you’ll need.

Beginners Sessions will run 6:30pm-8:00pm, Intermediate/Advanced Sessions will run 8:00pm-9:30pm

Spaces will be limited. Session sign-ups open in the week prior to each session.

Sessions will be held in the Faculty of Music.

To find out more and sign up, please visit the CMP Hub.

For Beginner sessions, we are using Pioneer DDJ-FLX4 Controllers. Students will need to bring their laptops (with a USB type-C input) and will need to download software (rekordbox) on your laptop to use.

For Intermediate/Advanced sessions, we are using Pioneer XDJ-RX3 All-in-One Consoles, participants will need to bring personal USB sticks with their own choice of music.
