The days of tedious recorder practice are over. DJ decks are now officially recognised as musical instruments on the GCSE Music curriculum.
Recently we were featured in The Guardian for publishing a syllabus with the London College of Music, meaning DJ-ing can now be graded and awarded with an accredited certificate with the LCME. This puts decks on a par with classical and jazz instruments.
But most children don’t listen to classical music, and until recently music curriculums have not reflected this. Through DJ-ing, young people can discover a love for music-making in an exciting and fun way. Our new DJ-ing course is designed to make getting started as straight-forward as possible – for children and parents! Our course includes the Pioneer DJ DDJ-200 decks and our book ‘How to DJ’, both delivered to your door before the course starts.
Here at Virtuoso x FutureDJs, we believe that music education should be accessible to everyone. That’s why we have partnered with Pioneer DJ to include the DDJ-200 in the course. It’s the ideal beginner DJ’s choice as it is inexpensive, doesn’t take up too much space and can even be connected to your smartphone.
At FutureDJs we have always been at the cutting edge of music education. We’ve continued this reputation by creating Virtuoso, an interactive platform which provides live, remote courses from our state-of-the-art teaching studio.
Join us on our mission to remix music education. Take the first step to helping your child find their own sound by signing up to our DDJ-200 course, with flexible payment options through Klarna.
