DJ STUDENT TESTIMONIALS

“Great time, great craic, great people, great music – what more could you want for 5 weeks of music tuition. In fact I finished the course and ordered my setup right away! The tutor is a top bloke, no issues whatsoever, very engaging, assisted when needed and let us enjoy our course.”
John Turner

 

“Went into the course not even knowing the basics and finished with a confident knowledge of mixing and experience with decks. Great course for kickstarting your DJ life! Highly recommended.”
Roly Smithers

 

“Excellent. It wasn’t even like going to ‘class’ – it was more enjoyable! I found the tutor to be sound. He never made mixing boring and we all had a laugh as well which made us want to attend. He taught us well, was well spoken, clear and to the point when explaining how to use Traktor and answered all our questions. Always obliging to help during the course and after the course too. I would recommend Secret Sound to anyone who wants to start DJing. You will have a great experience and you will enjoy it throughout. ”
Jason Molloy

 

“Really easygoing, realistic atmosphere to learn in, the kind of environment where you can have a laugh while learning at the same time. I was never afraid to ask a question.”
Amy Coyle

 

“This course happened to be the best thing I could have done at this moment in time. I learned all the key aspects of DJ’ing that I needed, thanks to the tutor, who was patient and explained things very well and gave me my own time to understand and get things, nothing was rushed or skipped. Thanks a lot to the Secret Sound guys, really nice fellas and made you want to come back week after week. 10/10 – best around in my opinion”
Liam Shannon
