When I started at the academy I wasn’t a beginner, more of an enthusiast who needed a kick up the backside! I’d been content to just mix for my podcast for a few years but having sessions with Melodie gave me the confidence and the desire to play out and entertain. I didn’t think I was good enough to play in a club or that the kind of music I played would make people dance but it didn’t take long for me to realise that I wasn’t far off.
Melodie helped me to focus of making my sound more professional looking at things like EQ’s, the all important volume levels and more creative things like acapella mashups and sound effects. She helped me build the foundations of a good technical ability and has given me the inspiration to continue building this up and making myself better.
After much encouragement I finally sent a demo cd to a club in Leeds and now i’m a resident dj for Glasshouse at Mezz in Leeds playing in the funky room. It’s been a real buzz playing for such a big club and an up for it crowd, it just encourages me to want to learn more and explore new techniques. Melodie has helped me get here no doubt!
