DJ Equipment Basics
Learn the basics needed to get started as a DJ, whether you’re thinking of making a career change or simply looking for a new hobby. The techniques, equipment and role of the DJ has evolved in the past twenty-five years from simply playing music to a level where they are considered integral to today’s music and nightclub scene.
Choosing the correct equipment is a must, and with so many options out there it can be a daunting task, especially if you’re a beginner. Join Kazell, a well-respected LA based DJ, as he demonstrates the different equipment you can use to set up your own custom rig. He also walks you through the advantages and disadvantages of gear and basic equipment configurations.
Whether you’re setting up a home DJ studio or working at parties, weddings or clubs, Kazell has all the information you need to do it right first time without wasting money. By the end of the course you will have learnt basic to advanced skills, how to create your own music, how to set up a studio and master DJ skills, DJ equipment basics; mixing, dubbing and editing; understanding copyright laws and much more.
The course is delivered online using video-based training, allowing you to complete it at your leisure over a 12-month period.
