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.

What's it like to work with us?

Music has been my passion since I was in my early teens. I worked in an old record shop for work experience in Hyde Park, Leeds and started to pay attention to electronic music after being shown a load of vinyl and a pair of technics. The first ever record I owned was Flowers by Armand Van Helden and thought, what have I been missing!

I listened to house music now and then but didn’t really pay attention to it until I was in my early 20’s. I started clubbing at places like Wax:on and progressed into listening to more deeper sounds and knew I had to become a DJ.

I bought myself a pair of CDJ’s, went about learning the ropes but never really got into vinyl. I wanted to give myself an edge and consider myself as a “complete” DJ by learning on wax. I went to Melodie and after only two lessons, I was playing in clubs on vinyl and collecting all the ltd edition releases I’d been missing out on.

If you’re even just considering DJ’ing, don’t think twice, contact the DJ academy. It’s given me so much more confidence and gave me the last push I needed to get where I want to be.

If you want to get into djing and finding it difficult to teach yourself as I was, you should definitely get on this course! Melodie knows everything there is to know about djing and is excellent at passing on her skills.

She has taught me so much during the course and I have seen a major difference in my mixing. I am now confident in incorporating acapellas and effects into my mixes. Every session is always a laugh and a laid back atmosphere, but learning at the same time, Im gutted its over!

As an absolute beginner, I was apprehensive about what to expect from both Melodie and the lessons. I didn’t need to worry!Melodie put me completely at ease from the start, and turned what had previously been a bit of a mystery into something that I now feel that I understand and enjoy.

She is incredibly patient, anything I didn’t get she was happy to explain again and go over things until I got them.
The one-to-one structure of the lessons gave me more confidence as I could ask questions and not feel that I was slowing anyone else down.

Overall, an enjoyable experience, one that I would totally recommend, and I will be back for more! Thank you x
