I have performed at over 200 nightclubs and music festivals internationally alongside names like The Chainsmokers, Marshmello, Big Sean, Wiz Khalifa, DJ Snake, Steve Aoki & more. I am currently a resident DJ at OMNIA San Diego. I can provide dj lessons for students at all levels. Lessons will be given on the interntational club standard Pioneer CDJ 2000 dj system at my studio. Subjects will range from basic set preparation and mixing strategies to advanced fx and a variety of other djing techniques.

About Dylan

Hi! My name is Dylan T., aka Dyluxe, and I'm available for in-home, in-studio, and even online music lessons worldwide! I offer tutoring and mentoring on electronic music production with Ableton Live software, Ableton Push Hardware, and other software plug-ins, as well as DJing on the professional standard Rekordbox software with the Pioneer CDJ 2000 Nexus DJ system. All lessons are taught on a one-on-one basis and will be customized to your specific needs. Whatever your knowledge level or ability, I can teach you anything from the basics of electronic music to advanced production, engineering, and mixing techniques. My innovative hybrid curriculum will teach you to both create and perform your own original music. I have a complete in studio set up with all of the premiere tools you will need to achieve your goals. My goal is to help you

expand your knowledge of electronic music and DJing so you can bring your artistic visions to life.

I am an Ableton Certified Music Producer and Graduate of Dubspot Electronic Music School with a degree in DJing and Music Production. I also have a Bachelors Degree from San Diego State University. I am currently a resident DJ for OMNIA San Diego & Hakkasan group as well as an Internationally Touring DJ. I have performed at over 300 nightclubs, music festivals, and events worldwide alongside artists like The Chainsmokers, Marshmello, Dillon Francis, Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa, Steve Aoki, & many more.

Aside from my DJ career, I have a ton of experience teaching and working with children. I have always enjoyed teaching people and helping them to reach their goals. I started out at a young age as a babysitter for family friends. In high school, I took a job managing a local skatepark and giving skateboarding lessons. Once I moved to San Diego to attend SDSU, I took a side job as an activity leader for Harmonium, an after school program for elementary school students. During the summers, I also managed and taught skateboarding at the local YMCA Skateboarding Summer Camp.

Anyways, after I started to excel in my music career, friends and acquaintances started reaching out to me for advice and information. Ever since then I have been tutoring, mentoring, and helping my peers learn how to DJ, produce music, book shows, boost their marketing & much much more. I look forward to working with you and helping you to achieve your goals!

Raymond is a nice and a great teacher for our 11 yr old grandson. He is patient and fun. But he gets our grandson to focus when GS gets distracted. I feel that Raymond is teaching wholeheartedly and really it’s up to the student with how far and fast he wants to go.

DJing is both a technical skill and an art form. I will teach you both. Over the course of many years and many house parties, bars, clubs, festivals, I have learned how to set a mood and move a dancefloor. I can share with you the insight I have gained along my journey.

About Mark

My name is Mark Farry. I am a DJ, music producer, and sound healer based in Portland, OR. I have been producing electronic music for 12 years and DJing actively for 3 years.

My history includes: operating a music blog in 2008 to ride the wave of electronic music's popularization, co-founding an online community of house music enthusiasts in 2015, hosting a weekly radio show at KPSU in 2016, launching a podcast focusing on storytelling through melodic house & techno music, and more recently organizing music festivals in the PNW region. I have played in low-light bars and on elaborate festival stages. I have written music to dance wildly to and music to meditate calmly to. I have played music to friends at home and I have played music to strangers in a foreign country. I seek to share the insights I have gained along my journey.

Much

Love!

Mark is incredibly knowledgeable, patient, and friendly to work with. He has been helping me mix music in Ableton and I am very excited about what we have created. Mark is quite articulate about music which allows us to thoroughly examine the different sounds and elements in a song to better understand what we like and what could be improved upon. I recommend him as a teacher to students of all ability levels and am excited for us to continue working together.
