What You’ll Learn
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 its accompanying software can be confusing. Our online DJ courses for Denon DJ units such as the Prime 2, Prime 4, Prime GO or even SC5000/6000s will help you master the equipment and your music! 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.

All the techniques taught in our courses, however, can be applied or adapted to most music. Our aim is for you to get creative and mix confidently with your music library.
The beginner course also has Crossfader DJ Tools available to download. We develop these tools to help you master basic skills such as timing and beat-matching manually.
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! Many 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.
what support will I receive?
After you enrol in a course, you will instantly access all the videos and lessons to watch as many times as you like. Each lesson has a dedicated comments area for you to ask tutors any questions you may have. You can also get in touch with tutors via email if you’re having problems, and we’re there to support you every step of the way.
How Do I View My Course?
Purchased courses are instantly accessible via our student portal learning area. You can access your course and lessons 24/7 and watch each video as many times as you like. If you have an iPhone, we also have an iOS app to access our learning portal on the go! Everything in the app syncs up with the web so that you can work seamlessly between the two.
You can also take your lessons on the move by downloading them for offline viewing inside the app. Just like Netflix!
Which Languages Are The Courses Filmed In?
Our courses are all filmed in English. Unfortunately, we don’t have subtitles available in other languages. Multi-language support is something we will be adding in the future so check back for updates.
