I’ve been into dance music for as long as I can remember, but for long enough, I didn’t realise there was a difference between a dj & a producer. A producer, being the person that creates the song, and the DJ is obviously the one that plays it to the masses. The reason they’re often both referred to as a “DJ” is because a lot of producers are DJs too.
Now I’ve tried my hand at dj’ing, and even though I did put time in, I never really got to grips with it (until recently when melodie started tutoring me, but that’s a different story). I think it’s one of those things that I just didn’t click with. That didn’t quench my thirst for dance music though, and after finding out about producing dance music, I wanted to get involved.
Now, generally speaking, learning a new hobby/skill is expensive. Learning how to produce dance music usually is too, that’s the reason i taught myself. Not via self teach manuals, but by trawling the Internet night after night. In truth it took around 3 years to get to a decent standard, because, although I was learning something new every day, I had also picked up a lot of bad habits along the way. If there was a course similar to ours available at the time I was learning then id definitely have done it. It would have saved me so much time.
The main focus of this course is to give others the knowledge & tools to be able to take up this hobby relatively quickly, and in what had proven to be the most effective way. Furthermore, students won’t have to do as I did and spend hours going wrong before hand. We also want to make sure its accessible to EVERYONE, hence the reason we’ve priced the course so low. Please don’t be fooled by the price though, we aren’t running a Mickey Mouse club here. You’ll benefit from 1-1 sessions here, at the studio, in person, with either Melodie or I.
Throughout the course we’ll focus on ensuring your needs are catered for from day 1, regardless of if you’ve produced dance music before or if you’re a total beginner with zero musical knowledge.
What’s more, you won’t have to fork out for your own equipment, that will all be provided for you.
If this has appealed to you even in the slightest, I urge you to contact the academy. 1-1 Taster sessions are available so that you can see exactly what we will be getting up to in the course and if you’d just like to ask us a few questions, we’d be more than happy to help.
Afterall, learning how to write a song that might just end up being played by one of the worlds biggest DJ’s sounds far more exciting than learning to play the recorder, doesn’t it?
