PRIVATE FOR DJS ONLY
Since the industry has shifted from traditional beatmatching to an ensemble of MIDI controllers and synced devices, the art of mixing by ear seems to be a thing of the past and that’s not OK. If you want to stand out from the rest, then stepping away from the technology and digging through the crates of your local record shop will give you a chance to clear your mind and focus on pieces of music that really speak to you.
After you finish this course you will be able to know the difference between different types of turntables and they operate, what are the components of a player from needles to tonearms and platters, how to adjust the weight, height, and calibrate anti-skating, as well as how to verify the pitch.. You will also know how to handle a vinyl record, back-cueing, scratching, beatmatching techniques, EQ Mixing, and many more

TOP 10 QUESTIONS
WHAT ARE YOUR PAYMENT CONDITIONS? CAN I PAY IN L.L?
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)
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BOTH MODULES?
Mixing vinyl records is not as easy as using CDJs or digital technology. There are no visual guides, no pre-saved cue points, and not even a BPM counter.
Both modules are given in private and they are exclusive for DJs only. If you do not know how to DJ on CDJs then you need to enroll in the Essential DJ Course.
The first module covers all the topics that are mentioned in the syllabus over 10 hours. The second module covers advanced techniques and deeper understanding about the overall vinyl mixing. It also focuses on a more practical and technical approach.
CAN I ENROLL IN THIS COURSE IF I AM NOT A DJ ALREADY?
This course is open to people who have an idea about DJ’ing using CD Players, and are able to beatmatch. If you have no idea whatsoever about DJ’ing then we recommend that you start with the Essential DJ Course first, and then apply for this vinyl dj course whether taking the full bundle of just private sessions to learn the new technique of vinyl dj’ing. (You can also learn the basics of DJ’ing in private with Ralph Nasr)
WHEN CAN I START?
If you are applying for a private session or a private course bundle with Ralph Nasr, the maximum waiting time would be 3 weeks after you submit your application and confirm it by a down-payment.
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 HELP ME FIND GIGS?
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.
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 “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
IS THIS COURSE ENOUGH FOR ME TO DJ AFTER I GRADUATE?
Knowledge, Talent, Skill, Practice, Passion and Patience are the main ingredients of success. Knowledge alone is not enough though, practicing what you learn about is key. This specific course requires a lot of practicing and in order to be able to perform using vinyl, we recommend that you spend at least 30 hours applying what you learned before you go live
Taking both modules is very important when it comes to mastering the technique of mixing on vinyl.
