DJ Course reviews

“As I’ve been playing out regularly for the past 5 years I wasn’t sure what more I could learn. I was amazed at the depth of knowledge Chris has on DJ production and he has really opened up my eyes to the creative possibilities for DJs… cheers Chris!”

Advanced DJ certificate

“I needed an overview of DJing and decided to enrol on this course as the course structure seemed perfect for me. The tutor was really patient and had a great knowledge of all styles of music. Taking the one-to-one option worked for me as I could stop the course and ask questions at anytime. Thanks a lot for all your help.”

DJ Skills Crash Course

I studied the music technology diploma at London AMP and had an excellent time there. Having come from doing a similar course at a standard uni, I found their hands on approach and one on one tutoring incredibly efficient and much more insightful than the former. The teachers are are fantastic and make the courses both productive and fun. Thanks for the experience!
