Here’s what you can expect:

DJs: Learn how to DJ from an experienced veteran in the club scene both in Ireland and Internationally. We will cover all the aspects of how DJs work and prepare for a gig, learning the main skills of beat matching and mixing while getting to know how the decks and mixer work. We also have the newest DJ gear, the most note-worthy item being a full CDJ & DJM Pioneer Nexus 2 set-up. You will learn how to find all your favourite music and keep up to date with all your favourite DJs and Producers. This year we are also allowing students the choice between recording a live mix or a livestream of their DJ set onto BMG Sound’s Facebook. There have been many student success stories come through the studio with many of them being given the prospect to DJ at local TY Club Events.
The cost is €100 per person. All weeks are subject to demand. If you have headphones please feel free to bring them but we provide some so they’re not essential. We take a small break halfway though the morning so please bring a drink and small snack.
Places are limited to 4 with a minimum of 3 DJs required per week. To book your place please email Billy on [email protected]
or you can also sign up via Eventbrite (please check confirmed weeks with Billy before purchasing) – a full list of weeks can be found here: DJ Workshops Eventbrite
Two of our student success stories are Ali Roche and Emily Dunne. Both began lessons right here at BMG Sound. Ali and Emily were quick to learn and highly motivated and shortly began to play live sets in clubs for sold out teenage events. Below you can see an example of Ali’s work, a mix she recorded in the studio.
“I did the dj summer workshop in bmg sound last summer when i was 15, and it really gave me a better understanding of what’s involved in djing and mixing. I’ve always had an interest in music and doing the summer workshop with billy really gave me the knowledge and confidence to become a dj. Billy was very supportive and let me be part of the junior cert night last september. Since then, i’ve gained more experience by practicing in the studio, and djing at more fourth year events, and now am one of the resident djs for TYevents, which i really really enjoy. This workshop started my “career” and i’m so delighted that i did it, would highly recommend to anyone interested in this path.”
