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!”

“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.”

“I always had an interest in DJing and decided to take the plunge and give it a go! The tutor made me feel at ease and the course was relaxed but structured. I managed to mix my first mix CD by the end of the course which felt like a real achievement all thanks to London AMP. Cheers!”
