The Complete DJ Course

The definitive DJ course based on the revolutionary five-step formula for DJing success, based on Phil Morse's Amazon best-selling book Rock The Dancefloor!

Course introduction

Across its nine modules, The Complete DJ Course brings to life, expands upon and demonstrates in brand-new ways the five-step formula for total DJing success (taken from the Amazon best-selling book, “Rock The Dancefloor!”), as used by thousands of DJs already to learn to DJ or to build on the skills they already have.

What you'll learn

  • In Step 1, The Gear, you learn how DJ gear and software work, from $200 entry-level controllers to standalone systems and pro gear, covering all the major hardware and software including Pioneer DJ, Serato, Traktor, Denon DJ, Roland, Reloop, Virtual DJ, Numark, Technics, Rekordbox…
  • The best DJs can play on any gear- you’ll learn four things you need to know so you can play on ANY set-up too. This will also help you to avoid making expensive mistakes when starting out or updating your gear
  • Step 2 is The Music. Here’s a BIG myth: Some people will tell you that you need a huge record collection to DJ with. Not only are they wrong, it turns out that’s actually the LAST thing you need – and if you believe this, you’re holding yourself back
  • Discover, shortlist, organise and prepare your library so you can always get your hands on exactly the right track to play next, at any DJ gig
  • Step 3, DJing Techniques, is a big one! Here you’ll learn the timeless techniques that all good DJs need to know whatever their gear. Many DJs neglect these – but without them, you’ll never progress.You’ll master music structure, counting & timing, jogwheel control, mixer skills and manual beatmixing
  • Grasp the features and tricks of the latest digital systems – think the most up-to-date info on cues, loops, FX, key sync, live remixing, tone play and so on, including cutting edge ways to effortlessly switch between genres and BPMs in your mixing
  • You’ll then learn real-world DJing tactics to get you through any kind of modern DJ set, from clubs and lounges to festivals, parties, weddings and more, and in a whole range of musical styles including house, hip hop, trap, pop and “open format”
  • The Playing Out module shows you what to expect in venues nowadays, how to set up, how to read a crowd, how to deal with requests, how to fill dancefloors (and keep them full) – and gives you the one secret that ensures promoters and venue owners will remember you and want to book YOU again, not some other DJ
  • You’ll get tips on confidence and conquering nerves – very real obstacles for many DJs – so you can enjoy your DJ sets and do the best job
  • In Step 5, Promoting Yourself, you’ll get the “joined up” formula to succeeding in today’s online world. (It is possible to get the gigs you want AND be true to your art and yourself.)
