Course FAQs

After Taking The Course Will I Get A Gig?

We don’t provide gigs as part of the course. This course is all about building up your reputation online and in person. We give you guidance and structure to help give you the best chance for success. We believe in making your way in the industry organically through these methods. You can’t buy your way into the industry; it takes commitment and hard work, but we guarantee that if you action everything within the course, you will have the best chances for success, and a gig will likely come your way soon after!

Do I Need To Also Buy A Mixing Course?

We would recommend buying one of our mixing or beginner courses if you’re new to DJing or don’t feel confident with your skills yet. The last thing you want to do is get your first gig but then not feel confident enough to perform at it. Becoming a confident and creative DJ can take time but thanks to our range of mixing courses you can master these skills with ease ready to show off through the content strategy outlined in this course.

What Equipment Will I Need?

This course can be taken no matter what DJ equipment you own. This career-driven course focuses on mindset, accountability, actionable tasks, and much more. We recommend you are already a confident DJ who thinks they’re ready for the club. Part of this course is about how to level up your social media, and you must already be confident with your DJ skills. If you’re new to mixing, we recommend one of our beginner courses first to learn the basics before trying to get gigs. Please note that this course will not guarantee a gig; however, it will change how you look for gigs, where you promote yourself and how you get your foot in the door. Be prepared to put the effort in, there are no shortcuts in this industry, and those who put the effort in now will see success in the long run.
