TOP 10 QUESTIONS
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CLASS & PRIVATE?
The DJ Essential Course covers all the intermediate topics that are listed in the course syllabus. There are 2 options for this course:
- SHARED CLASS:
The shared class hosts 4 students covering 10 hours to complete the full curriculum of the intermediate module over a period of 5 weeks. In case the class hosts 3 students only, the course fee becomes $215.
The private course hosts only 1 student and it covers 8 hours to complete the intermediate module over a period of 5 weeks. A Semi-Private course (hosting 2 students only) could be an option for you at $275 instead of $300.
WHAT ARE YOUR PAYMENT CONDITIONS? CAN I PAY IN L.L?
The courses are priced in USD for international students.
If you are a local student, you can pay in LBP based on the daily rates. Please note that we have already discounted our original course prices by more than 50% due to the economic situation that we are all facing
As for the payment methods, we accept cash, international transfers, online payments, and bank swifts (additional charges apply on all electronic payments)
DO I HAVE TO PAY THE FULL AMOUNT IN ADVANCE?
DJ Courses are short and can be competed within an average of 4 weeks. The payment should be fully paid anytime before the first session, however in order to book a seat, a non refundable down-payment should be settled.
IS THIS COURSE ENOUGH FOR ME TO DJ AFTER I GRADUATE?
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.
The DJ Essential Course is considered to be one of the two modules of our Advanced DJ Course. This essential course covers the intermediate topics that are listed on the course syllabus. Along with enough practicing, it guarantees that you can perform at any event.
Upon completion of this essential course, and if you would like to reach a more advanced level, then you can apply for the second module in private which covers more advanced techniques, deeper cognitive understanding, vaster and wider tips & tricks, and has a more practical approach. You can discuss this post-course with your tutor upon completion of the essential module.
WHEN IS THE NEXT DJ CLASS SCHEDULED?
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 your payment (Non-refundable). 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.
WHAT STYLE OF MUSIC DO YOU TEACH?
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..
DO I NEED TO HAVE ANY GEAR?
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
DO YOU OFFER FINANCIAL AID FOR STUDENTS?
At Per-vurt School, our aim is to always support education and grant our students the best we can to ensure they get an excellent learning experience even when their financial resources are limited. We believe that it is our responsibility to contribute in making education less of a privilege and more of a human right.
For that, we have come up with another financial aid that would extend your course payments over a longer period of time while you enjoy taking the course stress free. The plan is to grant you double the time it takes to finish your course payments with 0% interest. For example, if the course duration is 2 months, you can have 4 payment installments. This has to be secured by a banker’s check that will remain in the safe box until the full payment is completed, and by then it can be returned to the issuer.
For more information about our financial aid and how to apply for it please contact us here →
DO I GET A CERTIFICATE UPON COMPLETION?
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 “DJ Master Certificate“. 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.
