Meet Some of our students
This has by far been the best and most useful course I’ve ever done! It is structured in such a great way that is easy to follow, but at the same time very informative. I’ve not used my equipment much in the past, until I did your course! It’s just really brought everything together for me and makes me want to use them more than ever now! P.S Loved all the sample music you demo with, thank you!
Just wanted to say a big thanks, how great this course is! I have started learning how to DJ the past year with 1 to 1 tutors, but I have to say this, has helped me gain my confidence further and this course is easy to understand by the way you have structured each video with techniques. I will be purchasing the advanced course and I look forward to learning more!
I have finished course one, I’m so glad I did, it has helped me heaps! I’ve been playing around for a few years but decided to go back to basics and start at the beginning. So many questions answered in your tutorials which are excellent. I’ve got more practice to do and then I’ll be starting my second course!
I have been a DJ for over 25 years now and never had any lessons, just trial and error and advice from other DJs. I’ve just completed the beginner and intermediate courses and I have to say I really enjoyed going back over the basics. I have also learnt a lot about the software and use of effects. I will be purchasing the advanced course next week. Great tutorials!
Thanks for a great course. I’m an older DJ who learnt on vinyl, then moved to CDJS and have recently bought the XDJ RX2. I took these courses to get used to the new technology. Love the courses, they’re very clear and easy to follow!
Jamie, absolutely fantastic course! The way you show the various techniques, the structure of the course and the quality of the videos is top-notch! I have done live teaching sessions before, but I prefer learning using your online teaching courses! Already purchased the advanced course and can’t wait to start. Also, love the content you put out on your social media channels. Great way to spend my time during the lockdown!

Do I need DJ equipment to take this course?
To take this course, you will need some DJ equipment, headphones, speakers and time to practice.
We have designed the course, so it doesn’t matter what equipment you use. We have you covered, whether it’s a Rekordbox controller, Denon DJ standalone player, Traktor setup, or anything in between.
The course is mainly filmed using Pioneer DJ equipment as we intend for you to take your skills to a club or festival DJ booth; therefore, we want you to be confident using the Pioneer DJ layout. Anything in the course that is exclusive to a specific DJ setup is highlighted in the course and is a bonus lesson.
If you have any questions throughout the course, each lesson has a dedicated comments section where you can ask the tutor any questions.
English is not my first language. Do you have subtitles?
Yes! Subtitles are available in the following languages: Arabic, Chinese (traditional), English; French, German, Italian, Spanish, Japanese and Portuguese.
Am I too old to start learning something new, like DJing?
Age is just a number when pursuing your passion for DJing! Many of our students started their DJ journey later in life and have achieved remarkable results. Our courses are designed for beginners, whether young or old, and our step-by-step approach ensures you can grasp the fundamental techniques and concepts. It’s never too late to learn something new and embrace the joy of DJing.
I don't know where to start and have no music to learn how to DJ?
No worries! We provide you with everything you need to get started. With our exclusive Crossfader Music Pack and Training Tools and a three-month free trial to popular music streaming services like Beatport or Beatsource, you’ll have access to a vast library of music for your DJing journey. We guide you through signing up and importing music, so you can start mixing immediately and learn the art of DJing quickly.
I'm afraid I'll be judged or criticised for my skills if I try to DJ in public.
We understand the fear of judgment when stepping into the DJing world. At Crossfader, we foster a supportive and inclusive community. We aim to uplift and help you become the best DJ you can be. You’ll be part of a family of DJs, with access to our private Facebook group and Discord community, where you can connect with fellow DJs, share experiences, and receive encouragement. Our dedicated customer service team can always address any questions or concerns.
I don't have time to dedicate to learning how to DJ.
We recognise that time is valuable, so our course is designed to fit your busy schedule. Each lesson is conveniently broken down into bite-sized sections, ranging from 5 to 20 minutes. This lets you learn quickly and squeeze in a quick lesson during your spare moments. Our program is available 24/7, allowing you to access the lessons whenever convenient. With just a few hours of focused learning each week, you can master essential DJing skills and progress on your DJing journey.
