FREE DJing and Music Production Courses

FOR TEENAGERS! "TRUTH SQUADS" are offering free group courses in DJing and Electronic Music Production in the Auckland region.

Truth Squads are a community program founded in the essence of the gift economy.

Truth Squads provide free Electronic Music Production and DJing courses for Teens.

The program provides FREE after-hours group tuition for high school students.

There are 2 courses available. DJing and/or Electronic Music Production.

The first introduction course (in DJing) will be held on a Saturday and run over 2 weekends. Each session will be 3 hours each. We are close to finalising numbers on this so let us know ASAP if you would like to register your interest.

The basic course outline is below:

• Introduction to DJing

• Introduction to equipment/ways of mixing. E.g. Turntables, CDJ’s, Mixer etc.

• Music structure

• Beat Matching

• Mixing techniques

• Transitions

• EQ / Basic sound theory

• Effects

• Recording a mix CD/Demo and getting it heard

The course is absolutely free but students are encouraged to join the Truth Squads in the local community contributing in some way. E.g. pulling weeds, painting over graffiti, walking dogs, visiting the elderly etc. (see our other listing)

Producer and International DJ - David Ding will be facilitating the course. We are Auckland based at the moment but looking to grow as interest grows.
