DJing is both a technical skill and an art form. I will teach you both. Over the course of many years and many house parties, bars, clubs, festivals, and underground venues I have learned how to set a mood and move a dancefloor. I can share with you the techniques & insight I have gained along my journey.

About Mark F.

My name is Mark. I am a DJ, music producer, and instructor based in Portland, OR. I have been producing electronic music since 2008 and DJing since 2012.

My history includes: operating a music blog in 2008 to ride the wave of electronic music's popularization, co-founding an online community of house music enthusiasts in 2015, hosting a weekly radio show at KPSU in 2016, launching a podcast focusing on storytelling through melodic house & techno music, and more recently organizing music festivals in the PNW region. I have played in low-light bars and on elaborate festival stages. I have written music to dance wildly to and music to meditate calmly to. I have played music to friends at home and I have played music to strangers in a foreign country. I seek to share the insights I have gained along my journey.

Much Love!

Very patient with my 13 year old son who is just beginning. Could not have asked for anyone better.

I've had three lessons with Mark so far, and it's been great since the start. He's open to any style of learning, and has a really calm and welcoming attitude. I kind of love him.

Great lesson for our seven-year old. Explained concepts in a way our son could grasp, very patient and just the right pace.

Mark is incredibly knowledgeable, patient, and friendly to work with. He has been helping me mix music in Ableton and I am very excited about what we have created. Mark is quite articulate about music which allows us to thoroughly examine the different sounds and elements in a song to better understand what we like and what could be improved upon. I recommend him as a teacher to students of all ability levels and am excited for us to continue working together.
