New York Sound Academy to Offer DJ Courses and Music Production Courses in New York City

After ten years of success in London we are now planning to make a leap across the Atlantic and offer DJ and music production courses in New York City. Part of our mission is to create a worldwide community of music industry professionals and a network that our alumni can benefit from on a global scale. America is one of the biggest countries on the musical map and of course massive for electronic music, it's naturally the next step for us to make. Opening in New York will allow us to offer unparalleled tuition quality with one-to-one DJ lessons and music production lessons and flexible learning. We want to help students obtain the highest skill standards and success rates.

Upon opening New York Sound Academy (NYSA) students will be able to enrol on the full range of DJ courses currently on offer at London Sound Academy (LSA). That will include the Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced DJ Courses, and our exclusive Elite DJ Course. Students will also be able to use the studio to practice their DJ skills on industry standard equipment. Upon graduation from the DJ Course they will get a string of benefits including DJ gigs and be able to continue their learning with our one-to-one music production courses on Ableton.

Custom DJ Courses

We understand that many DJs have some basic prior knowledge or have specific goals in mind when it comes to their DJ tuition. For these clients we have custom courses available where we can plan a special curriculum just for you. We offer DJ classes on Traktor, Serato, Ableton and other programs and clients are welcome to bring their own DJ equipment into the studio. If you have a controller you want to learn how to use this option might be the best for you so please contact us for more information. We also have a turntablism (scratching & beat-juggling) course available.
