Spin DJ Academy
Spin DJ Academy incorporates electronic music into The New York Academy of Music curriculum for the first time. During the 12-week program, the instructor covers the history, technology, and practices behind DJing, teaching classes of 6–12 pupils how to sample, scratch, and create their own mash-ups. The Spin DJ Academy program ends with the chance for students to showcase their newfound skills during a live performance at Revolution Music Hall. Pioneering figures in the DJing and electronic music community are also invited to share their experiences during seminars. Students eager to explore music production may also enroll in programs that teach the basics of Ableton software as well as the audio science of re-mixes, mashups, and re-edits. Spin DJ Academy's production facilities provide the ideal learning lab for burgeoning producers.
