Learn how to become a DJ online: This best-selling, top-rated Udemy DJ course is a complete masterclass with 11 hours of original, high-quality instruction.

With 18,000 enrollments and counting, you know you are in good hands!

Hi there everyone! 

My name is Ross Palmer, and I'm going to show you how to become a DJ online, at a world-class level.

Here's a demo mix of me showing off some of the skills you'll learn in my online DJ school: vimeo dot com /274562678/eadfd0b470

I spent 13 years building my DJ technique, starting from vinyl turntables and moving all the way up through CDJs. I've been passionate about dance music since I was 11 years old, and I started professionally DJing when I was 18.

After years of honing my craft, I was fortunate enough to get a job at Armada Music*. During my time there, I worked alongside some of the best DJ’s in the world of dance music today. I witnessed that my own ideas and theories of DJing were superior to those of many signed artists, and it was a complete validation of the skills I had built over so many years. I had some tricks up my sleeve that even top people had never thought of!

Today, former students of my DJ school and direct mentors are currently playing to packed crowds at festivals, in stadiums, and at the world’s most prestigious clubs, including Tomorrowland, EDC, and more. And I can say with 100% confidence, these are the skills the world’s top DJ’s use to crush it in front of any crowd, every time. How you execute these skills is all about how often you practice, but these are definitely the technical foundations on which you can learn how to become a DJ online, at the highest level.

Sections 1 and 2 will cover all the basics of how to DJ - everything you need to get started. I’ll even give you some advice on purchasing your first deck and how to book your first show. 

In Section 3, the DJ classes dive deeper into the different tools needed to create a really engaging show, including how to make seamless transitions in a pinch and a super easy way to spice up even the most boring sections of a track. I will even walk you through creating a playlist to fill a 1-hour set, which is a lot longer than it seems if you're doing it right. 

Section 4 will focus in on advanced techniques that will help you learn how to be a DJ like the pros. In addition, you will learn how to mix faster and more precise, as well as secret tricks the pros use to make their show sound larger than life. Finally, we will talk about showmanship and how to really polish your performance to take your DJ’ing to the highest level.

My former students and good friends are signed to the world's best labels right now, Spinnin', Ultra, Revealed and more. I've been very fortunate to learn how to DJ from professionals at the highest level, and now you can learn to DJ online, anytime, anywhere.

But don't take my word for it: have a look at the reviews of my DJ school and see for yourself - thousands and thousands of happy students have already taken the course and left their reviews.

And it's not just the course itself, many students have already asked hundreds of questions in the Q&A section, and I do my best to answer every single one. We've built a community where all can learn how to improve, and that's the massive value of this course.

Thanks for reading,

Ross

This is a songwriting course for everyone, whether you're already a musician, or someone with no training at all but the desire to create music.

Think of composers such as Paul McCartney, who admits to no formal training in music. Or singers, who even at an early age can sing in perfect pitch. The ability to create music is in everyone. 

Have you ever seen Behind The Music or an interview with a famous composer or band on how they actually write their songs? They almost always play chords on a guitar or piano which generates melodies in their mind. 

In this course you will learn how melodies are generated in the mind as chords are played.  You will see how musical phrases are joined into sentences, and then combined  into sections, which  form songs. Throughout the course I use real world examples of contemporary hit songs such as Rihanna's "Stay" and Justin Bieber's "Love Yourself." I also discuss and demonstrate the application of basic songwriting techniques and song elements in classic rock songs from Led Zeppelin to Nirvana.

These sections - Introduction, Verse, Pre-Chorus, Chorus and Bridge - are the main elements  of today's modern music. At the end of this course you will be able to compose as many songs as you wish, in any style or genre!

This is an interactive course, where I play chord progressions on the guitar as you sing melodies. By the end of this course you will have written your first song, and you will be able to compose as many songs as you wish, in any style - pop, jazz, rock, country, and more!

Learn how easy and inexpensive it is to produce your own professional music videos. Some people who take this course may already have the 2 necessary materials: a modern smart phone and a good modern video editing software. That is all I use in my videos and I am going to show you just how easy it is.

Just a little history: I have written over 150 songs so far over the past 40 years and have always thought that you needed a lot of money and technical skills with videography to produce those videos you see from the big artists. Then, I saw those first videos from Justin Bieber that got him noticed with Usher's manager Scooter Braun. When nobody knew who Justin Bieber was, his mother put out these amazing professional looking videos and had no record company backing, but got noticed from somebody associated with one of the biggest R&B stars at that time. Also, Arnel Pineda (from the Philippines) current singer of Journey was also discovered by guitarist Neil Schon from YouTube.

As students of this course, you can use these same techniques that Justin Bieber used for his videos and that I use for the Pianoland video.

This Is REALLY A Quick Course. There is No Need For A Large Course To Learn How To Accomplish This.

You may look at the curriculum and think that this is a very basic course, because of how small it is, but nothing can be further from the truth. I designed it that way, because I know you are excited about creating a music video. Why drag it out?

I promise you that if you follow my advice in this course, you will be able to create an amazing music video for your music or band that used to cost tens of thousands of dollars.

So, I look forward to teaching you this amazing thing that musicians need for marketing their music career. Also, seeing yourself on a professional music is just exhilarating!

Sell Music: How to Build an effective Music Selling System

Become a profitable musician

How to Become a Profitable Musician

We’re all familiar with the stereotype of the starving artist, playing and passing the hat. However, while we’re trained to think that’s necessary for “good art,” that’s a romanticized myth and one we don’t need. For every poverty-stricken underground artist, there are others who make it big -- so why can’t you be one of them?

Still, there’s no denying that making your way as an independent artist online or otherwise is hard. With so much competition, you need to make sure that you put yourself in the best position to succeed. One of the best ways of doing that is making sure that you have a comprehensive email marketing system in place, allowing you to distribute music and monetize your fanbase as best as possible.

This course offers a comprehensive guide to how to do just that.

1. About the Creator

The course was developed by Thomas Ferriere, a graduate of Berklee College of Music with more than 20 years’ worth of firsthand experience within the music business.

Musical groups as diverse as Nine Inch Nails, Imogen, Heap, and Radiohead have implemented variations of these proven practices and they’ve worked wonders for them. This course has been taken by more than two thousand satisfied students and is geared towards those looking to learn the basics of and make a big impact in their indie music sales.

You do not require any special copywriting skills or materials to begin. Thomas Ferriere’s course instead streamlines years of learning and specialized skills into a short course broken up over a few lessons that distill the essence of that academic and music background into an easy-to-understand and highly accessible format.

2. About the Course

The course itself includes 2.5 hours of video instructions split up into easy to digest lessons which can be viewed at any time after the initial download. In addition, you will receive four articles that help to explain the concepts covered in the course, additional downloadable resources, and a certificate of completion.

That latter part is especially pertinent if you ever want to prove to others that you have a grasp of what it takes to sell music online. In an age where certification is both increasingly important and increasingly conferred in an online fashion, the certification included can help elevate the course in the eyes of future employers if you seek out a music marketing job of your own.

You can also access the lessons on your smartphone or other smart devices, allowing you to watch them there, on your TV, or whichever way you prefer.

3. What You’ll Learn

The layout of this email marketing course for music breaks down the process into several steps.

First, you’ll want to develop special email-centric pages on your website. These are also known as “Squeeze Pages” and they are one of the most essential parts of the process. Many of the other methods of selling music require a lot more steps, effort, or copywritten work; however, by setting up an effective Squeeze Page, you can help automate much of the rest of the process.

Once you have done this, visitors to your site who are curious about your music can enter their email in exchange for free samples of your music. An autoresponder built into the site will then blast out friendly emails over the course of a few days.

This helps solve two problems with one big tool. First, as a musician, you don’t have time to send out dozens, hundreds, perhaps even thousands of emails to fans looking to engage with you. By setting up an effective Squeeze Page, you can automate the process by pre-writing messages (or hiring someone to do it for you) and then allowing the autoresponder to message them out automatically upon people entering their email addresses.

Secondly, this helps ensure that you’ll be able to keep fans and customers engaged with your content and informed of your latest concerts, releases, and other exciting news. Most of all, the autoresponder sends out offers of free music.

The overall effect of this is to help you build up a rapport with your fans and increase your chances of being able to monetize your fanbase while getting new sales on a daily basis without your direct involvement. This is a perfect example of passive income at work, which can be an essential way of helping build your brand and bank account without you having to spend extra time on it.

The course lays out the details of how to accomplish this on a step-by-step basis. It will also touch on the importance of generating increased traffic to your site via things such as Facebook Ads and how to make Adwords work for you. Examples of email tablets are given to help you demonstrate the best way to write these in a professional yet engaging manner.

4. Who it’s for

In distilling down advanced techniques and expertise to an easy-to-follow formula, this course is perfect for anyone looking for extra guidance on how to make music marketing work for them without the need for an advanced marketing degree or industry contacts. This means that it is accessible to and a great idea for anyone interested in making money off their music.

In particular, it’s a boon to bands, DJs, musicians, and other indie artists who could benefit from the insight it provides. If you have never marketed your own music before or that of someone else, this is a great introduction on how to do so in a cost-effective online-savvy fashion.

If you do have a basic idea of online music marketing, this course can help everyone from seasoned producers and podcasters to solo artists up their online game and stay ahead of the competition.

With the help of this course, you can maximize your monetization via Squeeze Pages and email automation, allowing you to enjoy more financial stability and focus on what matters most -- the music.

Radio is an amazing amplifier and still the #1 way to reach a HUGE amount of people and build a fanbase.
