TOP 10 QUESTIONS

On Average, we launch more than one DJ Class every four weeks. To book a seat in our next class, you need to apply for your DJ Course and book your seat by submitting a down-payment of 100$ (Non-refundable and will be deducted from the course fee). Once done, we will ensure that you start the course within a maximum period of four weeks. In the application form, you mention your free schedule and we will add you to the class that fits your timing. Usually the DJ Classes happen twice a week covering around two hours each visit on a fixed schedule.

In case of private tutoring, the schedule is more flexible and can be discussed closely with the tutor after submitting and confirming an application.

DJ Courses are short and can be competed within an average of four weeks. The payment is split into a down-payment of 125$ upon registration, half of the remaining upon start, and the other half towards the middle of the course.

Because we care to give the student all the attention required, we have limited the number of students per class to four only. One of the most important advantages is that the students can work in groups and learn from each other, as well as discovering different approaches and perspectives towards DJ’ing

We are specialized in Electronic Music however we do not teach you what to mix, we teach you how to do so. When you learn the art, technique, and science of DJ’ing, you will be able to mix any style of choice, whether it is Pop, Dance, R&B, Techno, House, or even Dubstep, Chillout, Psychedelic and D&B..

Applying to this course grants you 3 vouchers:

When it comes to DJ’ing, the minimum age for admission depends on which course you want to take. The “Essential CDJ” Courses, “Vinyl DJ” Courses, and “Live Performance” Courses are open to students of 15 years old and above. If you are below 15 years old, you can enroll in the “Digital DJ” or the “DJ4Kids” or the “Private” courses.

Our DJ School is fully equipped with the latest DJ gear. It is not a must to have your own gear however, because it is very important to practice. we recommend that you buy a basic DJ setup to practice at home. If you cannot afford a setup at the moment, we recommend that you get the DJ Room Rental Bundle for which you receive a 33% discount


We sequentially host events and give the chance to our top students to perform live and experience the stage. “Per-vurt Sessions” is another platform we provide to our students to be noticed on social media and push their career forward.

Although we do not believe in major benefits behind receiving a certificate in DJ’ing or in Music Production, and because those two domains are not considered to be academic, we do grant certificates to the students taking the “Master Programs”. Students taking Essential or Private Courses are granted a letter of completion.

It is true that hanging a certificate on the wall looks nice, but what really makes you qualified is your mixing skills and the ability to control the dancefloor

Knowledge, Talent, Skill, Practice, Passion and Patience are the main ingredients of success. At Per-vurt, not only we make sure that you get the most professional tutoring, but we make sure that we will be proud being represented by you in the dance music industry. For that, we have decided to not graduate the student without making sure that he/she is able to DJ. Any student who is still not able to perform in a way that goes on par with our standards, will take more sessions for free until we make sure that every penny spent was worth spending. Knowledge alone is not enough though, practicing what you learn about is key.

This is an intermediate level course that allows you to DJ at any event. Should you want to pursue learning advanced skills and techniques, and discover deeper aspects about DJ’ing, you can enroll in the Private Advanced Post DJ Course afterwards or simply tale the Master DJ Certificate from now, once for all.

” It was a pleasure learning with Jason Kaakoush. who is a great mentor and very experienced and talented in what he does. “Thank you” for everything that he taught me and i would recommend Jason to anyone whose willing to learn and start with a professional tutor”

 

” When I first heard that Jason Kaakoush is giving the Back2basics course at Per-vurt , I was so excited that I will be trained and couched by one of my favorite DJs whom I danced for his beats in Syria. It was an amazing time there exploring a passion of mine with a well knowledgeable artist like Jason who was giving me all what I needed to learn. I was also amazed by watching the electronic music scene through Per-vurt “

 

” I took the back2basics course in 2019, the course was very comprehensive and well structured. The instructor Jason is very open and honest. He provided a lot of his experiences and feedback which gave the course a very nice edge. After I finished the course I was able to practice at Per-vurt and developed my skills even more. It was a great first step to get me started in the music industry and Jason was always available even outside the classroom to help out with any questions. “

 

” When I signed up for the Back2Basics course, I knew nothing about DJ’ing. I was just passionate about music and wanted someone professional to guide me. One year later, I am sure that I made the right choice. Jason explains everything in great detail while being a super chill person. He does not only teach you about how to use the equipment; his course also covers useful knowledge about music theory. BIG BIG Thanks! “
