These days, the music that ignites dance floors has come from fewer and fewer live instruments and increasingly more turntables and laptops. Professional DJs Chris Stiles and Brian Sadiarin have partnered with Bach To Rock music school to make music education reflect that evolution. By teaching classes in turtabilism, electronic music production, and recording technology, the veteran DC DJs ready students to take parties and recording studios by storm. Beginners start with elemental skills, such as setup, music selection, and scratch techniques, moving on gradually to more advanced topics such as music theory and Serato DJ software. Those with some experience under their belt can experiment with cutting-edge equipment, try out creative new techniques, and figure out why you shouldn’t spin a pizza on a turntable.
Bach To Rock
"Learning to play music should be fun" states Bach to Rock's philosophy. "It's called play for a reason." This warm, inviting spirit permeates everywhere students work individually or in groups with seasoned players to improve their skills in guitar, voice, drums, piano, keyboard, and even in turntables. They then put their musicianship to practical use in extended jam sessions, learning how to be expressive and glue their instrument back together after smashing it. Once pupils have progressed to a professional level, they can check out Bach to Rock's professional recording studio, which are open to artists who want to lay down tracks for an album or fine-tune their already-existing songs.
