As a total beginner Donny has taken me to all the basic steps it takes to learn dj-ing. With great motivation and positive coaching he is helping me out in this learning process. He encourages me to mix my own preferred music and we're now moving towards developing my own set!
“I’d fully recommend this DJ school to whoever is interested in mixing/DJ-ing in Amsterdam, I’ve had a great experience with the school and teacher overall in the past 1.5 years.”
I am very very happy that I had a chance to learn djing in DJ School Amsterdam. I met such amazing DJ coaches and the best part I liked about this experience, that I could better define my own style and be confident about what I am doing. I am looking forward to see you guys again in future and for those who are wondering if it’s worth it, IT IS! Cheers, BALLYN :)
My son had an excellent experience with DJ School Amsterdam! He took a 5 hours customized session followed by a short performance. He greatly enjoyed the DJ lessons in a professional environment, well knowledge teachers and well equipped studio. He is highly recommending the studio to everyone willing to improve the DJ skills.
Great people, great atmosphere and a great place to learn everything about being a good dj. As a guy who have never touched a dj gear, I worked with Justin, Donny, Roeland and Bardo (with Olivier organizing everything perfectly) and I made a significant progress in just two weeks thanks to them. They are all so nice, talented, professional and very good at what they do.
