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?
Melodies course has been a massive boost for me. When I first started I can honestly say I didn’t have a clue. However since attending Melodies course I’ve really progressed as a DJ. She helped me find my personal sound and what works best for me and the amount of confidence I’ve gained from attending is unmeasurable. Like I said, I started off a very basic beginner, I can now beat match, plan sets, use acappellas and effects. I highly recommend taking Melodies sessions, I feel that I’ve progressed so much in such a short space of time and I don’t think I would have achieved this otherwise.
I always wanted to control music.there were many schools i attended but i didnt achieve anything. When i moved to Leeds from Lithuania i found Miss melodies academy it seemed unreal at first! Melodie is one wonderful teacher who got me into musics world from the first lesson..i got deeper and deeper and after a few sessions with Miss M i understood that it wasnt just music created one after another all the mixing, playing that she taught me left a big impression of how many things a person could do with a range of music.
Obviously it depends on the teacher and the way she teaches and explains everything to you. She was a wonderful teacher! To be honest ive never met a better teacher in my life.she showed me everything and its unbelievable how much a persons understanding and teachers knowledge can do together. Ive learnt everything i wanted and i can truly say that my dream came true because of her!! many thanks
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!
