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 with 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 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…
…GET INVOLVED :o)
I started djing about 3 years ago, at the time I was living in Germany and as the years went by I was asked to dj in a couple of low key bars, there I learnt the basics of djing beat matching and how to use the equipment. But that’s where it stopped I only knew the basics. Within the last year my life has changed drastically and I am now living back in my home town of leeds. I wanted to take my skills to that next level to enable me to play out and I wanted to do it quickly. I did my research and came across miss melodies academy. After the first session Miss Melodie got rid of some of the bad habits I had picked and took me back through some of the fundamentals. Within a couple of sessions my mixing become a lot more sharper and less predictable. She is an extremely good tutor and most importantly she is straight down the line, she will tell you whether the things you are doing are good or bad. The Academy has defiantly give me that bit extra to take me forward. I would highly recommend the course to any one from a beginner or a more advanced person who’s wants to push on.
I would like to take this time to thank the Academy : )
After having a couple of years off dj ing i decided to get into the digital side of things and signed up for the full dj course at melodies academy which i thoroughly enjoyed Melodie obviously has a vast knowledge of all aspects of djing and teaches you in a very laid back but thorough way in a style that suits your individual needs and by the end of it i left with confidence and know how to ‘play out’ shortly afterwards i went on holiday to portugal and asked a local bar if i could spin a few records and ended up djing for 4 hours!!
If your looking for a place to learn djing or just to improve and gain confidence melodies academy is definitely the place to start!
