LIVE DJ PERFORMANCE
Having the skills to DJ in your own home setting or in a studio or even in the radio waves doesn't make you a fully prepared DJ. A very significant part of DJ arts is the actual art of performance. Being able to move a crowd should be second nature to a professional DJ. Active industry DJ's are able to turn any live setting into an energy-filled party, no matter what crowd is in front of them. Learning how to read the crowd, genre-specific performances, live DJ techniques, putting together DJ sets and cleaning up your mixes, training your ear and mechanically DJ-ing without using your eyes, troubleshooting and technical setups in different club settings are some of the main aspects that are taught in this extended course.
