Garrett was patient, kind, and professional when he meet with my son virtually. I was a little worried about how the meet was going to go because it was virtual; however, he did an excellent job rearranging the camera whenever he needed to provide the appropriate angles for my son to learn.

Money and time well spent! Garrett is very knowledgeable, capable of discussing multiple DJ methods/styles, and is also great at communicating on different levels of music comprehension.
Mark
Garrett is everything I was looking for in my DJ instructor. He has a thorough background in teaching and working with students, but at the same time is a professional DJ who is out gigging all the time. His studio in North Hollywood is great, and he's made a huge difference in my DJing.

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, and underground venues I have learned how to set a mood and move a dancefloor. I can share with you the techniques & insight I have gained along my journey.

Mark is great! Helped me understand the basics and ease into learning. He was so helpful with answering any questions I had. Looking forward to growing my skills with him!
Dan
I had the pleasure of working with Mark over the course of ten weeks recently as I wanted to radically improve my abilities as a DJ. From the moment we began, Mark and I connected over similar musical tastes, and he understood my goals that I was setting for myself.

Mark worked with me by giving me stylistic feedback and walked me through technical details that gave me the comfort to start DJing my own sets. In this era where distance learning is the norm and virtual broadcasting is getting more commonplace, the work that I did with Mark has allowed me to operate with confidence. I began doing weekly streams (which had rough beginnings!) that became were the basis for work we were doing together.

I would highly recommend someone who needs help getting started DJing and also needs someone to bounce music ideas off of as they're honing in their craft. Thank you again, Mark!

Very patient with my 13 year old son who is just beginning. Could not have asked for anyone better.

Vaughn was very insightful during his teachings for Music Production. There are a lot of hidden secrets when it comes to engineering and producing music and he really helped clarify those things. He'll push you creatively and help you understand the plethora of tools software has to offer.

As someone who knows nothing about music production. Vaughn helped me have a better understanding of my 3rd party plugins as well as plugins within my DAW. He is freakishly knowledgeable on the topic.

The session didnt happen. I think this website is possibly of a con. I'll be requesting my money back for the 5 sessions bought.

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.

Raymond is a great DJ teacher. Our 11 yr old grandson is learning a lot. Raymond is on time for our in-home lessons. He's patient and understanding. We would recommend him to anyone.

"Garrett has been teaching DJing to my 11 year old son for several months now. Garrett has really helped him find something he's passionate about (something I think is priceless in itself). In addition, I sincerely appreciate his professionalism, and enthusiasm for his craft. I could not recommend him more!"

"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."

"At the start of the quarantine I was having difficulty getting the feel for anything and everything DJing. It was brutal!, intimidating, terrifying, and sort of infuriating. Robert and Michael took the time to really break down the flow of what you need to do, how many beats do you count out, where the bass knob should be. They did everything to make transitions and blends super easy at the beginner level. I am still taking classes with them, and can’t wait to learn more. They have truly helped to boost my confidence
