Student Testimonials

"I recently finished my advanced DJ course a few weeks back and cannot recommend it enough. The support and tips I received on improving my DJ technique were amazing. My tutor really made the whole course enjoyable for me and I loved every minute! Thanks to LSA. I can't wait to get out there and share my music in the clubs! Thanks again for all the help, highly recommend taking this course!"

"I took the Advanced DJ course with LSA. The tutors were fantastic and quick to assess the stuff I already knew. The techniques they taught me for beat matching on vinyl turned something which was foreign to me to something I could start getting on top of (and it has really refined my CDJ beat matching where previously I was very reliant on BPM counters). Initially I was skeptical about what I'd get from the course, but having done it I can't recommend this course highly enough."

"I've had two blocks of lessons with London Sound Academy. On both occasions I have come away with a wealth of knowledge, skills to make me a better DJ & have had a good laugh with the tutors. I also took part in their Ibiza tour doing gigs across the island and saw so many people fulfil there dreams. I would highly recommend LSA for any level of DJ, from beginner to experienced."

"I think that London Sound Academy is a great place for aspiring DJs/producers to learn the basics in their field and progress. I did the DJ course as I already produce my own stuff. Although, there is always room for improvement so I am considering the production course...
My tutors were all very skilled in their fields, great teachers and super likeable! I totally recommend LSA!"

"I have just completed the full 3 part DJ course at London Sound Academy. It was a wonderful experience, the instructors have been patient are very knowledgable (as they are real DJs and producers) and I learnt a lot from them including cross genre mixing and understanding how to mix by ear. Looking forward to playing live with these guys at Egg & Ministry and p.s. they have a radio station called LSA Live that I currently hold a monthly show for. Thanks again LSA. Next I'll be taking the music production course."
