I teach beat matching, turntable fine-tuning and repertoire selection to help you become the DJ you aspire to be. I own crates and crates of vinyl records and CDs, and I have DJ'd all over the world to enthusiastic crowds, so I can teach you to attain a real joy and skill in the art of turntablism.

Gfire was very encouraging, even though my voice was barely audible at times.
She had very effective advice for training my voice to go higher ("less effort on high notes"). She incorporated singing to help my speaking voice and overall made me feel like she really cared about my improvement. I will use her again next year, and feel like our phone lessons were quite successful.

My preferred method of DJing is through Ableton Live, because I believe it offers an unparalleled potential for creativity. I will teach the basics of how to use Ableton (if necessary), how to prepare a library of tracks for your DJ sets, how to mix and match effortlessly between songs, how to create live mashups on the spot, and the essentials of mixing. I spin mostly electronic and hip hop music in my DJ sets, but any and all genres are welcome!

Steve is a pleasure having around. He is patient, he inspired my kids and managed them well during the lesson. Steve's knowledge and love for music is motivational.

Although today was my son's first lesson with Steven, I gave him 5 stars because my son really enjoyed the lesson and also liked him a lot. From the start, Steven was calm and very very patient. He made my son comfortable and worked around his pace and level.

This is about you not me!!!!! DJ techniques including Turntables, CDJ’s, and everything you need to know about DJ'ing, from harmonic mixing to creating a real journey, what tracks to start/end with, how to beat match. What to expect and how to get booking...agents/managers. Now some of this can be done on line but I normally teach DJ'ing privately, so lets have a discussion and see how I can help you.
PLEASE NOTE: YOU MUST CONTACT ME VIA PHONE AT LEAST 36 HOURS BEFORE YOUR LESSON. There are specifications I need to discuss with you- and if you are coming to my studio for my own comfort and safety I like to get to know any potential students first. Thank you.

Charissa is an amazing one on one teacher. She goes at your own pace and makes sure you really know what's going on. I'm a slow learner so I love that I can ask her as many questions as I want and when I want! Not to mention, she is one of the coolest down to earth people I've ever met!

Such a great teacher, and you can be sure that she knows her stuff. But what I appreciated the most was the fact that she always made sure that I understood the lesson before we moved on to the next. Teachers this great, that truly care about helping their students reach their dreams, are hard to come by these days!

I worked with Dylan over the past few months, and I am really pleased with the progress I have seen. With his help, I have dramatically increased the breadth of knowledge of the tools available to me in Ableton. He has an awesome personality and is someone who is really cool not just to learn from but also to hang out with and talk about things other than music. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
