The course has been designed and presented by our very own certified trainer, music producer and DJ - Rob Jones, and is presented in a series of online videos that you can watch where and when you prefer - with a full complement of accompanying downloadable materials for your future reference, which consists of comprehensive written notes and customized mp3s for you to practice mixing with.

Included with the Beginners-Intermediate course are a collection of DJ mixtools from Loopmasters, for practicing your basic DJing skills.

 

How much does the course cost?
The cost for joining our beginners-intermediate course is just £195 GBP, which equates to approximately €228 Euros or $297 USD. This can be paid using most major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard etc) or your paypal account.

Where is the course held?
The course is delivered as streaming videos via our website directly to your PC, Mac, Tablet or smart phone. You can take the course wherever you are located in the world, and at times that suit you. Once you have access to the course, you can login to your account anytime to watch the next module and proceed with the course.

What equipment do I need?
To take the course, you need to have a device that is connected to the internet and some speakers or headphones to hear the movies. No specific DJ equipment is required to take the course, but you will obviously want to purchase some at some stage in order to mix. This can easily be done after watching the course though, as you may find it helps you decide what equipment is right for you. Then, once you have the equipment, you can watch the lessons again to learn how to use it.

How long does the course last?
The course is presented in a series of movies, which last several hours in total. However, there is heaps of information in the movies, so you may find you need to watch them all many times over before everything sinks in. So, it could take you days, weeks, months or even longer to get through it, depending on how fast a learner you are!
