What You'll Get
Since the invention of the eight-track, musicians have only used records to spin on turntables or replace flat tires on tour busses. Give vinyl some exercise with today's Groupon: for $84, you get a one-hour introductory DJ class and one hour of practice time at School of Remix (a $175 value). Students must be 13 or older.
School of Remix's professional instructors guide novice hands around the turntable during introductory courses and rehearsal sessions. In a one-hour class, four to six budding music-makers learn how to operate equipment and master key skills such as cueing, beat-matching, and mixing both sounds and bowls of nuts. Professional DJs from the Vancouver area bolster their student's creativity with one-on-one instruction as they produce tracks.
After classes, musicians don headphones and spend 60 minutes filling the studio with dulcet tones that bounce, cartwheel, and pirouette off the room's acoustic walls.
