What You'll Get

Though ideal for fetuses, grooving to the human heartbeat makes for dull dancing in adults. Create electrifying beats with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get a beginner two-hour intensive workshop at Off Centre DJ School (a $100 value).

Head instructor Erik Laar (a.k.a. Steptone) and his vinyl warriors show mixmasters-to-be the roots, artistry, and versatility of old-school turntabling and new-school mixing software. With a watchful instructor at their elbow, pupils send kazoos to the dunce corner by learning to use turntables as an expressive instrument via hand skills, basic music theory, and analog sound mixing. Like cheetahs in training, apprentice DJs practice scratching and creating original tracks, mixing snippets from a variety of music styles. The school keeps the two-hour class small and fun-focused, giving each student maximum hands-on time with turntables and any time-travelling gramophones.

A critically acclaimed horseless jockey, head instructor Laar has phono-duetted with notables such as Kid Koala, scored films, and played festivals such as the Warped Tour and NXNE. Located in artistically inclined Leslieville, Off Centre DJ School sports top-line equipment and close proximity to local eateries for postclass nourishment.
