This 3 day workshop will begin with DJ Angel Lee talking about DJing, her experiences and paths into the music industry. Then you will learn how the DJ equipment works and how to set it up confidently. You will explore different genres of musical styles, from Rnb to house music and develop an understanding how to work with style, tempo and pitch. This will enable you to learn the technicalities of the DJing and how to beat match.

You will be able to practise on professional equipment, study additional music production tips, and create your own playlist / mini mix!

On this course you will also learn about the industry: training and professional avenues you can take, and how to market and promote your new brand. At the end of the course, each student will perform in a small local venue. You will DJ your very first set to an audience of friends and family. This is important for giving you further confidence and understanding of DJing within realistic surroundings.

All of the workshops available at our summer school are offered specifically to girls, young women and gender non-conforming/non-binary/transitioning participants ages 11-18. For more information about why, please see the ‘About’ page. If you have further questions please email Dr Liz Dobson who will be happy to provide more information about the science and technology intervention, and provide information about other University of Huddersfield music technology workshops and taster days that are open to everyone: e.d.dobson@hud.ac.uk.
