Dan understands that everyone has a different starting point and will adapt his first lesson to suit the needs of the student. From the beginning Dan will try to understand what the student hopes to achieve in the short and long term and he will adapt his approach to teaching accordingly. Dan will always deliver an inspiring and interesting lesson and will leave the student full of ideas and buzzing from the experience.
For beginners Dan will teach the basics of DJing and Music Production and instantly get the student making or performing music their choice. Even if you have a lot of musical experience or haven’t ever played a note, Dan can help you to understand all about music making from an alternative approach.
Dan will provide all of the equipment for the lesson and can advise on which equipment to purchase if the student wishes to own their own.
