Melodies DJ Academy... Aspire to inspire
After a successful 16 years experience of djing at some of the best club nights in the uk and including an amazing 15 years ongoing Residency at the Legendary night SPEEDQUEEN!
DJ Miss Melodie decided to set up her DJ Academy to help encourage more females to enter the fantastic world of DJing!
Having struggled to promote herself in a time when DJing was a much more male dominated business, something like the one-to-one tuition offered here at the academy would have been very beneficial.
After helping to produce some fantastic female DJs, the academy now runs courses for males and females and at every level from beginner, advanced to specialist.
We also run a very successful Junior Djs Group from age 9yrs to help encourage young people into this very exciting career!
Working on a one-to-one basis with your tutor enables complete attention and guidance wit h course plans individually constructed to your abilities and goals.
Since established, the academy has a 100% record with all students moving on to live experiences playing in bars and clubs throughout the UK! With a complete passion for teaching our tutors have a keen interest in bringing out the best in every student by encouraging your development and building your confidence. You can ensure that your sessions will be informative, valuable and most importantly enjoyable.
Melodie now tries to spend more time in the studio working on music production and Produces under the name M-Melodie.

What's it like to work with us?
I attended Melodies DJ academy due to my many years partying hard and wishing always it was me up there entertaining the crowd! Melodie was a great inspiration to me seeing her at Speedqueen as she always worked the crowd into the best possible dance frenzy and always had a smile on her face!
After purchasing CDJ’s and not understanding the logistics i was about to give up all hope until i found Miss M had an academy – after a few motivational emails i signed up and can honestly say it was one of the best ideas and moves ive ever made (and theres not been many!)
Melodie is patient teacher, a great motivator and inspirational guru who inspired me at every lesson even when i hit the effects button too much! Melodies Dj Academy is a must for anyone who wants to learn, improve their technique or just wants to hone their skills and get advice!
Thanks Melodie , my inspiration, guru and most of all a new and lifelong friend! X x
Becoming a DJ was something that I had never stopped thinking about since being a teenager, but I never had the confidence to do anything about it. I can remember being about 10 years old and having my first Hifi system with twin tape decks trying to mix one song into another on those and play the singing of one song over the top of a beat in the other tape deck. Obviously it never sounded any good becuase I didn’t know about beat matching then.
After years of listening and watching Melodie play at Speed Queen every Saturday as I danced and wished it was me up there, the minute I heard she had an academy of her own to teach people and share her skills with people like me I snapped up the chance immediately.
I really enjoyed the one to one no pressure lessons, Melodie made me feel relaxed and confident that I could do it and it was a lot of fun doing what I absolutely love, house music!
I tought myself to mix at 12 years old, living in the middle of nowhere in the Yorkshire dales it took me years to progress and be able to beat-match properly, and on vinyl it was tough. Clair (Miss Melodie) was one of the 1st DJ’s I saw play in Leeds @ Speedqueen and she along with Tin-Tin really inspired me to want to get DJing on the Leeds scene, so I made it my mission to play Speedqueen, and since then I’ve gone on to play some of the worlds biggest events.
I can confidently say that if your wanting to learn how to DJ you’re in safe hands and I couldnt think of anyone better to learn the skills from than one of Leeds’ finest and longest serving DJ’s…
