Pioneer DJ is partnering with DJ HAPA, founder of educational platform The DJ Coach, to deliver aspiring and beginner DJs a five-day WeDJ and seven-day rekordbox 6 tutorial course at no charge. By the end of this series, new DJs will have recorded their first DJ mix.

The comprehensive, step-by-step course is designed for new or existing customers using Pioneer DJ’s DDJ-200 Smart DJ controller or DDJ-400 two-channel DJ controller for rekordbox. Artists are challenged to complete daily lessons ranging from 20 to 30 minutes in length, concluding with a short quiz and exercise to cement the learned skills. Lesson topics include the following: basic music theory, effects, rhythm, mixing, looping, tempo and more.

“Learning how to DJ is an exciting time for an artist, but it can also be intimidating and challenging for beginners,” said John Powell, president, AlphaTheta Music Americas Inc. (formerly Pioneer DJ Americas, Inc.). “We are offering free, accessible and interactive lessons from an industry veteran and breaking down barriers to help prospective DJs realize their potential. Emerging artists are the future of DJing. We might be teaching them now, but soon they’ll be teaching us.”
