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 these are used in the course.

It’s time to put all the theory and techniques you’ve learned together to start mixing tracks together. 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!

Performance Features

Here we will show you how to use hot cues, loops & beat jump across various genres. More importantly, we will also show you how to incorporate these features into your sets in practical ways.


Learn how to clean up your transitions and perform unique mixes by adding in effects to your DJ sets.

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 simplistic loops from various genres to help you master the beat matching process and better 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. This course has helped hundreds of previous students master the art of beat matching and mixing in no time!

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.
