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!

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!

About Gina

Hi! I am very confident teaching on all types of equipment & all genres of music. I have played the biggest venues in LA, Mexico, Asia, Australia, Las Vegas and beyond. Dj-ing is my profession and my passion and I'm super happy to tell you how I made Dj-ing my full time career by the age of 24.

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.

Garrett is incredibly personable and knowledgeable, the best attributes of a great teacher! I've learned so much from him already and am looking forward to more to come in future lessons. I'd highly recommend Garrett to learn basics and beyond of dj'ing.

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.
