THE ULTIMATE DJ TRAINING PROGRAM
Since the 70s the first DJ started spinning records for a crowd. Throughout the years there have been many developments in music, technical setup and entertainment, so nowadays people expect more and more from a DJ.
Presentation, skills, but also entrepreneurial mindset and visibility is extremely important for a DJ to set yourself apart from the rest. Amsterdam Audio Collective set up an ultimate Bootcamp for DJs to help improve and challenge themselves. This program is for all levels and music styles and will push every DJ to be the best version of him/herself.
The training program
We start off with some of Hollands' best DJs, who will give a masterclass. Also we invited one of Hollands' biggest event organisations and artist manager.
You will train your skills in hands-on workshops to help you improve your technique and insight. This will all be supported by our technically skilled team, who will explain all exercises to you and who will answer all of your questions.
With an interactive Q&A by young and talented artist BASSA, who is currently pursuing his dream of becoming a professional DJ, we'll complete our intensive program.
