This course is given in either Private, Semi Private, or Shared Class.

  • Private: You and the tutor, and no body else 🙂 Up-close & personal, flexible style, timing, and pace.
  • Semi Private: This course preference hosts 2 students. It’s fun, interactive, and competitive!
  • Class: The shared class hosts a group of 3 to 5 students. Classes are pre-booked on a fixed schedule that fits all students.

The Back2basics course is divided into 2 modules. Module 1 covers the essential of DJ’ing. When completed, you can go more advanced and apply for the second module that has the same price table or take private tutoring sessions with Jason (As per needed). Module 2 can only be given to students who have completed Module 1 as well as a minimum of 2 post-assessments.

The first module covers the basics of club DJ’ing going through understanding gear, setup, DJ concepts, playlist management, beat-matching and essential mixing techniques.

The second module covers a deeper understanding about electronic music structure, keys, advanced harmonic mixing, as well as enhancing the mixing techniques, controlling the energy on the dancefloor, and building a brand to launch a career in DJ’ing.

Taking the first module will ensure that you get to an intermediate level if more practicing is frequently done on the side (you can book our DJ Room and benefit from a student discount) and if frequent assessments were done by the tutor. However, taking both modules will cover the advanced techniques and will ensure you be ready to perform in clubs.

If you already have an experience in DJ’ing but you feel that you lack more advanced skills, you can apply for one module or for private tutoring sessions. Jason will tackle the topics that fill the gaps and would craft a course to match your needs.

On Average, we launch a Back2basics private course every few weeks. To book your course, you need to apply for it and submit a payment (Non-refundable and will be deducted from the course fee).

Once done, we will ensure that you start the course as soon as possible. In the application form, you mention your free schedule and Jason will coordinate with you about a schedule that fits your timing. Usually the DJ Classes happen twice a week covering around two hours each visit.

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 4 vouchers:

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. Learn more here →

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. We also share your contact details with promoters who are looking for you.

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

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.

” 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! “
