I can also teach you how to go from amateur DJ to professional with a few tricks I have picked up along the way.

I will let you in on secrets of how to get paid for doing something you love. In terms of the sessions, I am flexible to teach you whatever you have the most interest in.

He was very kind and patient to me even though I know nothing about DJ. The location was not that hard to find. It was special and memorable for me.

This was a really fun experience. I'd recommend having prior knowledge of music in terms of rhythm and awareness of song structures to get the most out of the experience but he really does bring it down to basics of finding common ground between tracks and freestyles quite a bit so the experience feels a little more inspired and free-flowing. Very friendly, very open, easy going and I came away genuinely feeling a little over confident ;) Decks borrowed and practising.... thank you James - best of luck in all that you turn your hand to x

This experience is really a nice one! Firstly, he would briefly introduce how the DJ work and some basic knowledge of the DJ. After the brief, he will show you the way to play with the DJ controller. Should say, the experience is really worthy to have a try.
