ABOUT OUR PROGRAM
Learning to DJ can be an incredibly fun, but also frustrating experience. There are a ton of great free YouTube videos floating around, but as many, if not more, videos that are outdated, misleading and confusing. At The DJ Coach, we aren't just interested in showing you a quick skill that you can pull out at a cocktail party to impress your friends. Coaching is unlocking a person's potential to maximize their OWN performance and understanding.
We have taken the thousands of hours of coaching and developing curriculum and have laid out courses, projects, video series that are step-by-step and practical, accelerating the growth of our members.
In addition to the access to information, we believe that the interaction between members and our coaching staff is extremely important for growth. That said, coaches are available for 1-on-1 sessions and mentorship and can give more insight beyond or between the on-demand curriculum offered on the site.
