Recruiting now for NEW DJ Skills City of Leeds Youth Music Ensemble

DJ School UK are now recruiting for young musicians who want to learn how to use DJ equipment as real instuments.

At these sessions we work as a band, team or ensemble to create new music. We avoid copyright material. We use beats and sounds we find, record or synthesize to create completely original music. We do this by scratching, looping, juggling, cue-drumming and sound effects. This new art relies on us using modern DJ equipment as instruments. We call it: “controllerism.”

Sessions run every Thursday in school term time from 6.00pm to 7.00pm for ages 11-18.

Beginners are always welcome and will be shown all the basics. Everyone is welcome to use headphones to practise on their own until they feel ready to join the team and let others listen.

All Thursday sessions take place in our studio in Leeds City Centre – Click here for a map and details of our location.

Advanced players are invited to join a later session from 7.00pm but must be willing to commit to rehearse and perform on dates and in venues to be confirmed.
Fees – Sessions cost £1 each but we prefer people to pay £10 per term and commit to be a part of the team.
