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.
Her recent release “Wicked Plan” Was signed by L.A record label Digital Rhythm Music and is still number one in their best sellers chart.
Her next release “Lost” A chilled Deep House track due out on May 19th.

Having a keen interest in fashion she is really happy to be able to merge her love of music and Fashion by producing music soundtracks for various fashion shows in the uk. This enables her to really be diverse and delve into her extensive music collection producing soundtracks in all different genres.
In 2016 Melodie launched SaSS @ Distrikt Bar in Leeds

What's it like to work with us?
Learning to DJ with Melodie was the best decision I’ve made in a long time. No need to compare with any other institutions. Melodies DJ Academy is hands down top quality, teaching you everything there is to know at your pace.
I started as an almost beginner, due to practicing in my bedroom once or twice. Melodie has given me the knowledge and skills that make me confident enough to play out. I am now gathering interest and looking for work in clubs, something of which I would not have confidently been able to do prior to this course.
Not only has she taught me to use top equipment and techniques such as beat matching, using effects, looping and sampling, but Miss Melodie has helped me find my style as a DJ and shown me how to promote myself within the industry.
I am now well on my way to achieving my goal as an established house DJ thanks to Miss Melodie. I would highly recommend and I’m gutted its over. Will definitely keep in touch. Thanks.
Music has always been my number one passion and late last year after a vacation in Majorca spent watching DJs Pepe Link and Boris Cantero I realised that with some help I could realise my life long ambition and become a DJ , but I would need some help to get started.
Having looked around the Leeds area and viewed feedback from others I gave Melodie a call …the rest is history.
Melodies academy has the patience of a saint !!! starting from scratch I was carefully shown the basics of how to DJ starting with beatmatching and looping.Over time I have moved forward and allowed to progress at my own pace ( for which I am eternally grateful) to the position now where I am now learning the ropes with Ableton and starting to produce my own tracks.
Melodie has given me the confidence to go out and sell myself and currently I have a permanent DJ residence on Fridays in one of our local establishments.
For those looking to start or improve their DJ skills I cannot recommend Melodie highly enough , fabulous and patient tutor who has done it all herself and is happy to impart that knowledge.
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)
