Dj School In Bangkok

36 posts in this topic

Hi,

Could you please advise me which DJ Schools that teach in English in Bangkok are good?

Paste the website address, name of school and contact details here if possible.

I've looked up, there are some on Nana, Asoke, etc. but is there any place you'd recommend?

Also, which one do you think is better/best between Jazzbah and SAE?

Thank you!

SAE offers audio engineering and not DJing... Do not consider DJing as a real job if you start it in a DJ school. Good luck with your venture anyway.

Sorry to say - but club, big room & event DJ's are born ready to go (technical aspects are easily aquired), DJ school is for people who will rarely progress past the home environment, and a nice little earner for DJ's beyond their prime.

Hint - Checkout Pioneer or SAB Lighting Company in Thailand. - Buy a copy of "Sound & Stage" magazine for details.

Cheers,

Soundman. :o

Well, its have to be SAE Bangkok. The Instructor there is DJ Dragon (mongkorn). A well respected DJ in the scene and a passionate teacher with many years of experience and graduated students. cheers

once checked out one in Siam Square. Long story short, 4 months later saw the same guy still trying unsuccessfully to mix the same two trance records. The first time I showed him in 5 seconds without headphones. The second time I just looked through records while seeing him still trying to do it for 30 minutes. I don't recommend that place.

If you want to learn to DJ I can teach you no problems. Several years experience playing at huge dance parties including Ministry of Sound and Gatecrasher Australian tours and warmed up for a lot of international producers & djs.

Had a look in SAE. The "DJ school" is part of their music production course. Some talented musicians there.

spend money on gear and music and scrap the lessons, its not rocket science, its practice.

Can you count & tap hands/feet in time - if yes go and buy some kit and practise. study about 'off beats' and the like and listen to the structure of music that you want to mix

I'm also keen to get some DJ lessons to get started. I'm a bass player with some recording experience so plan to mix my own bass tracks. However, i've never worked a set of decks.

Can you help?

What type of DJ'ing do you want to do? Big difference between playing any type of dance music (i.e beat matching) to hip hop (scratching-dropping) and commercial dj'ing (just q'ing up the (playlisted tracks)

Do you wanna learn on decks (vinyl)

or CD

or MP3 with a controller (Hercules or similair)??

What and where do you want to play?

I DJ'd for 15 years in UK, from pirate radio (no pay - just a passion for tunes) to decent paying raves/parties, up to fashion shows for Armani and BMW car launches where they give you 500quid for a few hours work. Without a shadow of a doubt the unpaid stuff was always the best from a fun point of view.

If anyone has any interest in teaching me, I would like to learn.

I've made a lot of mixes in the past (for fun) by cutting songs up in Sound Forge and then arranging/crossfading them in another program, but I'd like to learn how to mix live and beatmatch in Ableton or Traktor or whatever. I sort of get it already, just don't know how to physically do it, so I don't think I'd be a bad student. Probably wouldn't hurt to learn vinyl too, but I'd prefer to mix mp3s.

Message me if interested. I could pay a little.

Indeed.

"Selection" is the skill you can't aquire. reading a dancefloor and leading them is 99% of the job. I know many people who cant mix but can smash up a party on the tunes they play. conversely there are untold dj's who can mix brilliantly, but what they mix..... thats where the problem lies.

i remember a dj i worked with years ago telling me about watching sasha play (long before he was famous). my mate said that sasha came to the party with 1 record bag - and then played an 8 hour set. his genius and fame came through his natural talent for tune selection

Hey to add to this, does anyone know anywhere that offers a practice space in bangkok?

I've just moved here an am yet ship my decks, mixer... But would prob ship my records or at least some over first, my condo being pretty small I doubt I'd get away with banging out tunes every hour of the day. Or alternativly if anyone wants to hookup for a mix when they arrive that would also be cool (I don't know too many folk here at the moment so that would be cool!)

Back on topic tho, your best bet is to get the equipment and lock yourself your room for a week and practice!

And when your in club, don't just listen to the music... Listen to how its mixed, and how the music progresses and the effects that gives on the crowd.

90%+ of white people under 30 are DJs.

Thats funny, I was under the impression that 90% of white people have no rhythm.

I've heard the percentage is even higher for Asians.
