This course contains 34 lessons in which you’ll learn:

Getting Started-

We’ll show you how to plug in and get started on your equipment. We’ll also show you exactly where to download your music and DJ tools and how these are used in the course. Plus we’ll import & organise your music library and then export this to a USB ready to start DJing. You’ll also learn how to correct any grid issues in your music library.

Music Theory-

We will teach you how to understand beats, phrasing and timing in your music. This is essential to be able to mix music accurately.

Beat Matching-

No wave forms, no beat counters and no sync. Here we are going to help you master the art of beat matching with only your ears. This is a skill all DJs should learn when starting out and we will give you all the theory, tools and techniques you need to master this.


It’s time to put all the theory and techniques you’ve learned together to start mixing tracks together. We’ll show you where and when to mix, how to use EQ’s and filters plus a few tricks to make your mix sound clean!

Performance Features-

Here we will show you how to use hot cues, loops & beat jump across various genres. More importantly we will also show you how to incorporate these features into your sets in practical ways.


Learn how to clean up your transitions and perform unique mixes by adding in effects to your DJ sets.

We have developed a foolproof way to learn the core DJ skills you will need to master. Inside the course is access to our Crossfader Music and DJ Tools pack.

The music pack contains a variety of exclusive music produced by friends of Crossfader to help you build your library whilst mastering the basics of mixing.

The Crossfader DJ Tools are simple beat loops from various genres to simply the beat matching process and help train your ears.

You can literally load the exact same songs or tools used in every lesson into your software/hardware and follow along step by step.

Our dedicated DJ tutor Jamie Hartley started working in the industry as a full time DJ over a decade ago at the age of 16. Since 2014 he’s worked to build Crossfader from a small UK based DJ school where he taught aspiring DJs in his studio, into what you see today, a global online DJ school and community.

From working one to one for years in a studio Jamie has developed foolproof and systematic ways of breaking down DJ skills and techniques so you can master them! A lot of other DJ schools will show you how things work rather than teach you the creative skills needed to help you stand out from the crowd.
