DJ Course reviews

I took the DJ crash course with the objective of generally knowing what decks did. I’d picked up odd bits of info from youtube tutorials but being at London AMP gave me a really solid foundation to play at house parties or consider going professional. The facilities were great and they have the new Pioneer CDJ3000’s which were amazing and I gained a good knowledge of what tech to go and buy afterwards. I would definitely recommend London AMP, they were brilliant.

“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!”

“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.”
