DJ Dino helped my husband get lessons and I have to say, I can actually listen to my husband's sets now. Dino did an amazing job with the in-home sessions, was easy to work with, and always on time. He is a highly patient, easy going and knowledgeable individual. I'd highly recommend him for any level DJ.

Zen has done such an amazing job teaching me how to operate Ableton. I was extremely overwhelmed and had no idea where to start and Zen really broke everything down for me and provided me with the resources I needed to get started.

"Robert is amazing at what he does. His taste in music is excellent, he loves DJing, and his excitement is infectious. He’s a natural-born leader/teacher and he’s just super fun to work with. The full range of things you can do with a DJ controller can be overwhelming. Robert will save you a lot of time by getting you focused on the essentials. He is detail-oriented, and his feedback is specific and actionable. He’ll point out things that weren’t even on your radar, and you’ll be better for it. Hopefully, you’ll be working with Michael as well. He’s a technical master, has an encyclopedic knowledge of all things funky and fresh, and he’s the nicest guy. I'm very happy to be working with these guys."

"When I decided I wanted to learn to DJ, I dove right in and bought a controller with no idea how to use it. Garrett took me from being a complete beginner, to a DJ who actually knows his stuff! Just had my first paid gig yesterday and it feels amazing. I highly recommend Garrett to anyone who is serious about becoming a DJ."

"There are many aspects of Robert that make him uniquely suited to instruct people in the art and skill of mixing:
* he's an extremely empathetic person so he's always on the same wavelength as his student.
* he's an exceptional communicator, as evidenced by his fluency in not only English and Spanish but ASL as well. More importantly than his multiple-language fluency, he has a natural aptitude for teaching and explaining things in an intuitive way.
* he's extremely passionate about live music performance, but especially the sounds that get people moving on the dance-floor. He also possesses an exceptional breadth of knowledge of dance music as a whole: the history, the artists, the genres, and all manner of tracks from timeless classics to fresh releases.

Robert has put a lot of thought into how to build the fundamentals of mixing from the ground up. I know, because I was one of the first people he taught. When we started, I was overwhelmed by the flashing lights and myriad buttons on the controller, and couldn't transition from one song to the next to save my life.

The many hours we spent teaching me to mix had two significant outcomes:
1. Not only do I feel comfortable stepping up to the decks to mix, it's actually something I REALLY enjoy and look forward to.
2. Robert developed the teaching framework he'll use to teach you, which focuses first on mastering critical fundamentals in an intuitive, step-by-step process.

If you're anything like me, listening (and dancing!) to dance music is something that brings you a great deal of joy.

Take it from me: the thrill of a perfectly-executed transition from one song to the next is an intensely gratifying and thrilling one. Being at the helm of a controller, you get to play an active role in the music, which is so much cooler than just passively enjoying it. Robert got me to that level.

He can get you there too."
