Testimonials

We’ve worked with JW DJ Academy to help train our in house DJ’s for our corporate events. Our DJS are good but they were missing that little something. The tutors always delivered, considered, friendly and professional advice.

Excellent Beginners Course. I really enjoyed it. I felt very comfortable and Louis the tutor was really caring and understanding. I am now confident to go onto the intermediate course.

Wow ! An amazing course. These guys really know what they are talking about. I had such a laugh and have made friendships to last a lifetime. I am looking forward to getting started as a DJ

My DJ logo needed a revamp so I contacted the academy for their in house branding services. Rocky was a pleasure to deal with and delivered on time. I would definitely use their services again.

I booked a DJ Scratch master course at JW DJ Academy with Adam (DJ TRIPITAKA). The whole experience from start to end was extremely professional. The tutor was great and helped me vastly improve my scratching ability. I would highly recommend to friends and family for anyone who wants a professional and friendly academy to teach you how to be a better DJ!

Brad , Student

Scratch Master Course

The beginners DJ course was SO good. My tutor was Leanne and she was brilliant at explaining everything, as well as being so friendly and patient. I didn’t expect to achieve much in my first class, but by the end I was mixing tracks together with confidence and have totally caught the buzz! I can’t wait for my next class and to keep learning more.

Liz Morphew , Student

Beginners DJ Course

I've enrolled myself for two courses (Scratch Masterclass & Live Mash up workshop) at JW DJ Academy with Chris/Dan, I can gladly say that I completed the workshops with confidence to enhance my DJ skills! I will definitely recommend JW DJ academy to anyone that is looking for a 1-2-1 workshop with friendly/professional tutors to enhance their existing DJ skills or any individual that is keen to learn how to DJ.

Frank Opoku , Student

Scratch Masterclass & Live Mash Up Workshop

A life long dream and passion of mine is to be able to DJ. After doing my research, JW DJ Academy just ticked all the boxes. I had taken a course at another well known institute, which was nowhere near the quality of teaching and support offered by JW DJ Academy. Not only is their mission to be THE best DJ Agency but they are also thinking about their future and growth. Signing up to the Beginners DJ course was the first step and Jaynee has just been incredible with her motivation and commitment in supporting my goals. The welcome from the Agency was great at helping me calm my nerves taking that first step. And then comes DJ G-Starr for my first lesson.... WOAH! His energy, passion, enthusiasm, wisdom and expertise makes him a GREAT tutor. The knowledge, experience and insight he holds within the industry is fundamental to a new starter. I was so impressed by how easy he made things for me and his technical abilities, let alone his library of music with a wide range of genres. It certainly was not as easy as it may look to some but his patience and guidance allowed me to be able to mix by the end of our session!! I was definitely on a high when I left and am looking forward to more sessions as well as learning from other tutors within the Agency. They also are helping me in sourcing the right equipment and learning more about the music industry. An all-round package well worth the investment. Recommend to anyone who wants to learn more, no matter your age or skill set, from REAL people who are genuine and want to see you succeed! No hidden agendas here! THANK YOU AGAIN!

Elaina , Student

Beginners DJ Course

I’ve never dj’d before and by the end the day I was beat mixing and dropping tunes comfortably. Me & my friend had the most awesome day. Our teacher Leanne was epic, she went into so much technical detail but it wasn’t overwhelming and we learnt so much. Leanne was calm, so approachable and the best teacher and it was so nice to be taught by a female, totally empowering! We didn’t want to finish the lesson and could have gone on for hours. Honestly the best day in ages. If I can mix in only 3hrs imagine what I could do in weeks! I highly recommend JW DJ Academy, they take their time to get to know what you want out of the course, you feel so welcome, comfortable and leave feeling like a DJ in the making! Book book BOOK, you won’t regret it!! 5 stars ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Lou , Student

Beginners DJ Course

Hands down an all round amazing experience! I had my first lesson with Ethan who is a brilliant teacher. He broke everything down so that it was all so palatable and easy to understand. It became a whole lot less intimidating after literally the first 5 minutes. By the end, he recorded my progress and I was able to jam to the mix he taught me how to create later at home. Jaynee is absolutely fabulous and the whole team are so warm and friendly. I can't recommend JW DJ Academy more. For anyone looking to learn as a beginner or if there's something you'd like to learn in particular like scratching or mashup, this is the place to be! Thank you Jaynee, Ethan and the whole team! You've got me well on the way to making my dreams come true!

Beginners DJ Course

My DJ'DREAM COME ALIVE! A fantastic, customised DJ workshop, with Ruben & Jaynee. Extremely professional, friendly -easy teaching approach, not to mention immense industry knowledge and great value for money! A MUST workshop for anyone longing or wanting to be a successful DJ. JW is the way to go and the ONLY WAY…. Thank you, for the superb and fun sessions. I can’t wait to showcase my newfound talent

Sonja Tenner , Student

Custom DJ Workshop

I had a private intermediate DJ lesson with one of the academy’s killer tutors, Ashley. The owner, Jaynee was super helpful in terms of recommending the right course, after initially being bought the beginners experience by a friend for my birthday. Jaynee took the time to understand my exisiting skill level and made recommendations on the right course and tutor based on the type of music that I mix. Super seamless, supportive and judgment free experience. I felt relaxed and able to ask as many questions as needed - Ashley and I covered both theory and practical elements, which I found incredibly helpful in preparing for my first gig, which was that weekend. Would highly recommend to anyone regardless of your skill level. Thanks again legends! KB x

Intermediate DJ Course

JW DJ came into our youth centre to do a workshop with our young women ages 8-16. The session was well organised, great communication, they had the young people mixing songs, dancing and singing!! Shout out to Walshy on the decks and his 10/10 tutoring! Everyone loved it and we will definitely be booking you in again for our other youth spaces. Great session!! Thanks so much again! AAK team and young people x

DJ Workshop

I had a beginners session with JW Academy recently and it was a great experience. Jaynee was extremely helpful from the start and everyone at the academy was very helpful and easy going which made the experience a whole lot better! My tutor was G-Starr who was really good at explaining the basics of what it takes to become a fully fledged DJ. G-Starr was also very friendly and made me feel at ease from the start! It was also good to be able to play on a large sound system at Be At One in Liverpool St. From having minimal experience in mixing songs, by the end of the session I was able to get to grips with the art of mixing and managed to mix several tracks together in the space of 3 hours. I'd highly recommend this session to any budding DJ out there!

Rishi Radia , Student

Beginners DJ Course

I had a great experience with Ruben, he is unbelievably talented. His knowledge was second to none and as able to demonstrate everything that he spoke about. Jaynee was also incredibly helpful from the first moment I enquired with the academy. Always willing to give up her time to speak to me and to get a plan in place. Would certainly recommend!!

Harry Sansbury , Student

I did the turntable scratch course with dj Cable. He is an amazing and professional dj. From the first lesson I felt comfortable and I saw the results after few weeks. I highly recommend them.
