Overview

SKapade Studios offers a selection of one-to-one DJ tuition for DJs of all ages and experience levels. We can tailor what we teach to the style you prefer, and if you have any special requirements, just let us know.

 

Our lessons centre around Pioneer CDJ setups, but we are also able to cater for DJs looking to explore the world of digital and vinyl DJing. If you are unsure as to what level you may fall under, here’s our general guide:

 

Beginner

 

These classes cover the basics of DJing and are suited for DJs who have never touched the decks, and those who have just started and want to explore learning on a club standard setup.

 

Intermediate

 

This level is suited to the DJs who are comfortable with the basics of mixing techniques, and may be beginning to perform at smaller events. You will learn the techniques needed to keep a set running smoothly, and introduce more exciting mixes.

 

Advanced

 

This class covers the advanced aspects of DJing, designed for more established DJs looking for that extra edge against their peers. We understand everyone will have their own styles and questions at this stage, so we take extra effort to tailor these classes to what you need.

Unsure where to start?

If you are a complete novice (like we all were at the start) and just want to familiarise yourself with the layout on industry-standard equipment, why not check out SKapade boss Stephen Kirkwood reviewing the DJM 750 MKII mixer from out partner Pioneer DJ?

 

This overview and demo is a brilliant way to learn the overall layout of the mixer, find out what all the different buttons, knobs and faders do, as well as learning about some of the advanced features of it are.
