"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

"I hired Garrett to work with my two boys ages 8 and 11 during the quarentine. Initially we started online and my two kids had never DJ before. Garrett was able to build rapport very quickly and create a lesson plan for each child that met them where the are developmentally. Garrett used his wide range of music knowledge and natural teaching abilities to create a really fun and engaged learning environment. Once we could safely meet in person, Garrett 's skill as a teacher was even more spectacular. He has helped my kids become real DJ's, find a deeper appreciation for music and has built up their confidence in being able to perform and share music with friends. Garrett has never been late for a lesson and even takes extra time and goes out of his way for his students. He is incredibly professional and has a real gift at connecting with his students. He was the bright light during COVID for my entire family. We cannot thank him enough for all his hard work and the abundance of music that his brought to our home."

Seriously though, he's so helpful. He breaks down complicated equipment & concepts into understandable pieces.

"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."

"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!"

"Robert was truly fantastic at teaching me the basics of DJ'ng. He first showed me the ropes and then let me try things while he watched and advised. Robert really knows his stuff, and has a knack for presenting things in an easy-to-follow manner which I could understand. In 5 short classes I went from knowing nothing to understanding the basics of mixing with confidence. He is also fun to work with, and very easygoing which is a big plus. I would highly recommend Robert to anyone looking to get started in DJ'ing."
