After a very brief introduction we get the young people behind the decks trying out what they’ve just seen and heard. We guide them through different techniques. A tutor will stand where the audience would be so they have full control and access to the decks (as they would at a gig). We provide Vinyl and CD turntables.
We maybe suggest different songs/styles young people could mix.
For example a Drum & Bass (180 bpm) track mixed with a Hip-Hop track (90 bpm) (because the hip hop track is half the speed of D& B).
During the initial stages, (depending on group size) it’s more about making sure everyone gets a go at the basics.
Just because DJ’s get paid loads and are supposedly ‘cool’ this doesn’t mean that it’s hard to DJ.
Getting teachers/youth workers involved easily proves this.
