Career Path : DJ Training

Have you gone to a club or a wedding, and eyed the DJ with envy? Have you ever wished you were the one spinning tunes, and creating a high-energy atmosphere where everyone’s dancing? If you have, then you may want to consider taking JB training courses. But how can you know if this exciting field is right for you? Here are 5 steps to help you decide if being a DJ is the right career for you.

STEP 1: Research, research, research.

Before you get any where near a DJ training program, find out all you can about the position. Scour the net to find out more about the lifestyle of a DJ, the pay, the challenges and the rewards. Once you’re comfortable that you have a strong understanding of the field (and you’re still interested), move on to step 2.

STEP 2: Think about me, myself and I.

Now that you’re familiar with the ins and outs of being a DJ, ask yourself a few simple questions: does it fit with who I am? Can I see myself doing that for a living? Is it a good fit for my personality? Will I enjoy taking DJ training courses? If the answer to these questions is yes, read on.

STEP 3: Follow a DJ around for a day.

The best way to find out if a job as a DJ is for you is to follow a DJ around for a day. Find some DJs local to you, and ask them if they would like some free help for a gig, on the condition that you’re allowed to shadow them. By spending time with a DJ and learning what a typical gig involves, you’ll develop a greater understanding of the discipline, and you’ll have a better idea of whether it’s right for you or not.

STEP 4: Visit a DJ training school.

If you’ve made to step 4, the next thing to do is to visit a DJ training school. Many schools have open houses, and these events are a great way for you to meet and talk with teachers, many of whom have worked as DJs. Ask these teachers questions about the job, and about career prospects. This will further increase your understanding of the position.

STEP 5: Enroll in a DJ training school.

The last step is to enroll in a DJ school. As you spend time studying and attending courses, and really immersing yourself in your education as a DJ, you’ll truly know for sure if the job is for you. This is the last step in the decision process, and probably the most critical one.

So if you’re thinking about taking DJ training courses, follow these steps. It will help you decide if this exciting job is what you’re looking for.
