Our Beginner Online DJ Course for Rekordbox users is the perfect way to get you started on your journey to becoming a confident DJ. We will teach you the core skills every DJ needs to master and have you mixing in no time.

Whether you’re just installing the Rekordbox software & plugging your controller in for the first time or wondering what music you should get started with we’re here by your side. The course will get you ready to press play on your first mix and build your confidence and love for DJing one lesson at a time.

This course contains 25 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 to use these in the course. Plus we’ll import & organise your music library, so it’s easily accessible when 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, an essential to be able to mix music accurately. 

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

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

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 while mastering the basics of mixing. The Crossfader DJ Tools are simple beat loops from various genres to simplify the beat matching process and help train your ears. You can use these tools to follow along with your tutor step by step. These tools and lessons have helped hundreds of previous students master the art of beat matching and mixing in no time!

As a Crossfader student, you’ll also have access to this courses forum where you can meet and chat with other students and the tutor himself.

Please note:

  • To make the most of this course, you will need either the Pioneer DDJ RB, DDJ RR, DDJ RX, DDJ RZ, DDJ 200, DDJ 400, DDJ 800, DDJ 1000 or any other Rekordbox ready controller (not sold with the course) and the Rekordbox DJ Software using performance mode.
  • We would also recommend a pair of headphones and some speakers to make the most of your training.
  • The course features the Pioneer DDJ RB, Pioneer DDJ 400 & DDJ 200 in its video lessons. However, all the skills can be applied to any DJ controller using Rekordbox!
  • All screengrabs on this course will be shown on a mac operating system but are all applicable to windows also.
  • Some lessons in this course have screen grabs from Rekordbox 4.0; however, all the theory and technical skills still apply.

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.
