DJ tips or techniques

  • Scratching: Opening and closing the cross fades becomes more difficult the moment you try to move it faster. First move it slowly then go on increasing the speed, by this you can perfect the scratch.
  • Develop a style: The tunes/songs you chose to play and how you play them work together to define your Dj-style. Your style should be expressed depending on what dub you are playing and in the type of music that is expected of you.
  • Respect the crowd: Developing your style is extremely important; however you still need to have in mind the type of people you are playing for.

  36. Sammy Abbra Stevens says:

    i think 1 hr lesson once a week for 3 months does not give someone enough time for practicing on equipment n practice matters alot in deejaying art as i see.

    • ESOM says:

      Sammy the school offers the student with space and equipment for 6 days a week. Lessons are conducted once a week, but the rest of the week is dedicated to practicals. Hope that clarifies it for you! 0700132588

  37. nambiropatricia says:

    are the djaying fee negotiable.. and CD the duration be extended to like two hrs . and like twice in a week.

    other wise WD wish to join

    • ESOM says:

      The fees are fixed. And there is no need to extend to two hours. Deejaying is a very practical subject so what matters most are the practice sessions. The school offers space and equipment throughout the week to students for practice. 0700132588
