"I'll first cover the basics such as a breakdown of the turntable its self and its functions, equipment arrangement and management. From there ill teach the basic cuts, scratches, and matching using wax.
Later (for those who stick around) tours of famous stores and record shops while teaching them the importance and history of "Digging" or looking for sounds in order to truly become a great dj
As for those who advance further, I'll teach them the art of beat juggling and "double work" such as marking the one on wax, advance dropping techniques, etc. Finally we will then take all the skills learned....and put them to use in Serato or Virtual wax software.
Moving to those who want to learn production, it will be on a one to one approach, and i will teach them things depending on their skill level.
