Our Beginner Online DJ Course for Serato DJ Lite & Pro 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 have just installed the Serato DJ Lite or Pro software & plugged your controller in for the first time, we’re by your side. We’re here to help you choose, manage and organise your music library ready to press play on your first mix. This course will build your confidence and love for DJing one lesson at a time.

This course contains 20 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.

Music Theory
We will teach you how to understand beats, phrasing and timing in music. This is 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 beatmatching with just your ears. Beatmatching is a skill all DJs should learn when starting and 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 confidently. We’ll show you where and when to mix, 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 loops from various genres to simplify the beat matching process and help train your ears.
You can load the same songs or tools used in every lesson into your software/hardware and follow along 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.

The lessons in this course use a range of Serato DJ enabled controllers, such as the Pioneer DDJ SB3, DDJ SX2, DDJ SB2 & Numark Mixtrack Pro 3. However, the techniques taught in this course apply to almost any Serato DJ enabled controller, as the performance features available, are near all the same.

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.
