A DJ needs to learn their instruments like any other artist and be flexible on unfamiliar DJ controllers. Learn from DJ Cruu, who began on Technics 1200s, used the first Final Scratch digital DJ rig, and now teaches on modern DJ controllers.
In-Home Professional Dee Jay Lessons and Training
FVDJs will bring a computer setup to your home or a location of your choice to provide DJ lessons and professional disc jockey training. Years of calls asking for Dee Jay and gear advice and training prompted DJ Clint to outline a lesson plan for starting your first mix. This plan led to other lessons on improving your dj mixes and completing everything from recordings to promotions. Contact K.C. Vinyl DJs now to reserve a learning session with yourself or someone important to you.

Young DJs will grow stronger each day.
Learning while young is very important for the brain. Any instrument allows the brain to make connections it never would have before, creating a web of language, beat, and emotion as a means to express ideas. It is very beneficial to children to get them playing with musical instruments before they get hooked on video games.
No one should hesitate to learn because they are older. A great number of successful DJs in Kansas City started in their middle 30s and 40s, and now play successful club gigs.
DJ Lesson Batch 1 - Dee Jay Basics
Understanding the gear you are working with is very important in order to avoid ruining your gear and harming yourself and others. Begin here with disc jockey basics, a lesson intended to give you enough training to get you started without overloading the crate.
An effective lesson requires around 4 hours to complete, but an intro of one hour will give enough time to get the gear going and get the very basic dj skills down. Group rates are available for $20 per extra kid per hour if you are having a DJ Lessons Birthday Party
DJ Basics Lesson Batch Includes
- Cables 101, Electrical Safety
- Setting up the equipment
- Optimizing the audio signal
- Optimize the computer - windows or mac
- Where to find legal dj music promos
- Perfecting the pitch

DJ Lesson Batch 2 - Intermediate Disc Jockey Training
Busting out the first dee jay mix is very rewarding, but pales in comparison to the feeling of a flawless DJ set. Prepare yourself for the next level of training, where focus is put on making better decisions. Beatmaching is still going to be difficult for some time as your brain learns to hear and differentiate two different drum tracks going while blocking out synthesizers and instruments. Learn more key strategies to bring your mixes tighter.
