Denon DJ Prime
DJ Courses

Beginner to Advanced


The Denon DJ Prime ecosystem provides DJs with some of the most powerful features available on the market. However, this brings with it some challenges! Knowing where to get started and learning this hardware and it’s accompanying software can be a confusing process. Our online DJ courses for Denon DJ Prime units such as the Prime 2, Prime 4, Prime GO or even SC5000/6000s will help you go from a beginner to advanced DJ! Learn everything from fundamental mixing techniques, EQ control and transitions to sophisticated blends, creative use of the effects and mash-up mixing.

We pride ourselves on not just showing you what a button does, but how to use it creatively. The lessons all work in chronological order so that as you master one skill, you’ll be able to combine it with others, instantly improving your creativity. Each DJ tutorial within the course features screen grabs and overhead shots of the equipment, making it easy for you to follow along step by step.

common questions

Why Have we split the lessons into 3 courses?

We have split our Denon DJ lessons into 3 DJ courses, beginner, intermediate and advanced. If you’re a DJ that already knows the basics we don’t want you to have to watch hours of video footage that’s just not relevant to you. However, if you’re starting and you’ve already spent lots of money on DJ equipment we don’t want you to have to spend a fortune for all the lessons if you don’t need them right away. Meaning, you don’t have to spend money on all the advanced tuition until you feel you need or want them!

Here is a breakdown to help you choose the right course to start at:

What music should I use?

Inside all of our courses are free to download links to third-party downloads, the Crossfader Music Pack & Crossfader DJ Tools. All the techniques taught can be applied or adapted to most music libraries but the lessons inside this course all use music provided for free inside the Crossfader Music Pack and DJ Tools folder.

This means you can follow along step by step with the music and tools provided or apply the techniques to your own library.

Who's the tutor?

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 teaching you the creative skills needed to help you stand out from the crowd.
