I’m blessed to have this beautiful, creative, talented soul in my life! There’s not enough characters available in this review to list all the things I’ve learned from her. She has a special knack for explaining and instructing to even the most challenged of folks (e.g. me). Alina’s talent and ability to teach is 👅👅👅
Kelly
Alina is so fun, smart, and easy to work with. She has a natural talent for music, people, and is patient which makes her a wonderful instructor as she helps guide you through the learning experience. In a few short lessons with her I have learned far more than I thought I could ever in writing digital music. Getting to work with such a person has really sparked a passion. In myself to learn and dedicate more time to it. Her knowledge, experience, skills and passion truly make her an asset to any person looking to grow musically in composition or live performance.
Aerin
Alina is easy to get along with and knowledgeable about the techniques involved in djing.

She brings the fun to this exciting element of djing without feeling the pressure of having to get it all right on the first day. Alina moves at a slow pace, with patience, letting you take the wheel and move through it together. Can’t wait for our next session!

Yo, Zen is the best in the game. Gettin' groovy on the drums as well as in the virtual world. Much obliged!
Jason R.
Dj zen is an excellent teacher for someone like me.. He was patient and understanding when it came to the speed at which I pick up things. (Slowly) He was extremely versatile when it came to the types of music i wanted to mix and very knowledgeable about the equipment i had in front of me. I would recommend him to extreme beginners to people looking to polish their skill sets and add even more. Im very happy with what I am learning!
Lorelei M.
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.

I break things down into layman's terms and offer a 6-step order of operations, similar to PEMDAS, that's applied to every time you're mixing a song, no matter the genre or the equipment that you're using. I've been mixing music for about decade and have had a passion for listening to/discovering new music for all my life. If you're a music head like me, already mixing on your own but want to hone in on your craft, or just starting out intrigued by the career of DJing I'm your guy!

About Michael

In general, I love music. And for the past decade, I've loved mixing it as well. Going to concerts has always been a huge part of my life and getting to play at them myself has taken things to the next level. Then throwing my own events and festivals offered me a chance to host a DJing workshop, and

Michael is an extraordinarily talented DJ and a wonderful instructor. He has a ton of experience DJing in all sorts of environments. He’s a technical master. He also has an encyclopedic knowledge of all things funky and fresh. Most importantly, he's genuinely excited to share DJing with his students. He's patient, clear in his explanations, and he gets as excited as you do when things start to click.
Michaela Gallagher
Michael was a fabulous instructor! He was a great listener and was able to match my skillset and experience with his lesson plan. I'm looking forward to taking more lessons with him!
Sara Streapy
Michael is an amazing DJ instructor! He is one of the kindest souls you will ever meet, which reflects his teaching style by being patient and encouraging you every step of the way! His expansive knowledge and passion for music is infectious. Looking at a DJ controller can be super intimidating, but Michael breaks it down for you in a way that's easy to understand. I couldn't recommend him more! This will turn into your new favorite hobby :)

I am a resident DJ at LA's biggest clubs and I've played festivals all around the world.
DJing has been my full time profession for over 10 years.
When I was 18 I saved up, bought myself turntables and some records, and taught myself how to DJ. It was very hard to teach myself especially playing vinyl!
Teaching comes very natural to me, and I love to play and teach all genres of music. I know how to play and teach about any DJ set up wether it's a controller, CDJs, or vinyl.
I'm excited to meet you and get you rolling!

So far, I've loved all of my classes with Sergio. His teaching style with photography fits my needs perfectly.

I like Sergio because he is very laid back and super funny. He fits incredibly well with my learning style and pace and I always enjoy our lessons. I was immediately able to pick up things I had previously struggled with upon taking his classes and have really enjoyed myself. Overall, I would absolutely recommend Sergio to anyone looking to start playing saxophone.

"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!"
