Curios about DJing, but not sure where to start? With years of experience, I will teach you the basics of DJing in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. We will work on techniques such as track blending, effects, loops, as well as music sourcing and organizing your library and equipment set up.

About Alina B.

I am a Ukrainian native, based in Chicago. I am able to teach in both English and Russian languages. I provide a relaxed and fun environment for everyone that comes to my studio.
I have a B.A. in Translation between Ukrainian, Russian and English and hold a TEFL Certificate.

My DJing career started in the underground scene. I've been playing in various cities across the country and overseas. I have released several compositions on various record labels as well. My main focus is electronic music.
I will teach you the techniques, pairing, music selection, working with software and organizing your music, equipment pros and cons.

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 👅👅👅

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.

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!
