I have always had a keen interest in djing as someone who has a huge passion for music. My current employer allocates their employees a ‘Personal Growth Fund’ annually which we are entitled to use to apply for courses or programs which will enhance our skill set or enable us to gain a new skill. As a fan of music, I decided this would be the perfect opportunity to have an experience of djing, to see if it would be something I enjoy.
I came across WRIGHTS Academy and embarked on a 6-week course with Junior. As a DJ with 10 years’ experience in the industry, I had no doubt that I would get the best out of the course with him. The sessions are 1 to 1, with a goal to create your own mix by your last session.Junior was patient and clear with his instruction which meant I was able to progress week by week, at the same time enjoying every minute. His instructions were detailed and I gained an excellent understanding of not only what I needed to do, but why and how the software and equipment worked and sounded as it did.
I have enjoyed the course so much, I have since purchased my own set of decks and I am already booked in for another 6-week course in which I only hope to develop my skills even further. Eventually I hope to start djing at private events and who knows what other opportunities this could open up.
I was lucky enough to have my personal growth fund to help me fund this course, but I would not hesitate to pay my own hard earned money for these sessions as they are worth every penny!
