FutureDJs


Type Of Organisation: Participatory Arts / Music


About

It is our mission at FutureDJs to make music accessible to all young people. We want to breathe new life into music education by helping connect students with their music department. We’ve found that DJ-ing creates that connection and fires students’ passion for music.

DJ-ing is on GCSE Music syllibi and decks are a musical instrument. FutureDJs teach peripatetic DJ-ing and music production lessons in schools, and help teachers to introduce electronic music into their department. We’re not advocating replacing classical music, but we can help you to bring together the best technology and contemporary practices to create an exciting 21st century music curriculum.


What I / we help young people achieve

By using the music they know, listen to and understand, DJ-ing students learn the fundamentals of music on a relevant and exciting instrument, opening the door to a whole new world of music production, song writing and composing. In our study programme, we teach music using decks and live performance technology. We cover what underpins music, from timbre, tempo and harmony to texture, rhythm and structure.

Learning and taking part in music boosts a young person’s mental wellbeing and gives them the confidence they need to succeed. It can also help students to develop their communication, problem solving and critical thinking skills. And, by developing these skills, children will be well equipped for for a future working in any industry.

Every student who learns with FutureDJs is a student with a new fascination for music — and potentially a new enthusiasm for studying music further.

Endorsements

“When I heard DJ-ing was going to be a proper music lesson, I was really excited. It can open doors for people who otherwise aren’t interested in music at school. I really enjoyed it and I’m sure anyone else would too.”
– Amelia Warren, Student
“FutureDJs has provided our pupils with a progressive, inspirational and professionally led programme, complementing our conventional instrumental and vocal lessons. From the initial meeting through to the implementation of the programme they have helped tailor individual and paired lessons to the needs of the learners sensitively, and with the very clear objective of engaging and challenging our pupils so that they make progress and, ultimately, thrive. If you are looking to add value and a great deal of enjoyment to your Music department I wholeheartedly recommend getting in touch with FutureDJs for a trial presentation.” – Richard A Curran, Shiplake College

“FutureDJs came to our Secondary Music Teacher’s CPD event in July, and it was phenomenal. The session put the most uncomfortable teachers at ease, and really went into detail about why DJ-ing should be studied. The passion that came across was evident, and we all were able to try beat matching and scratching in the session – definitely some hangers on wanting to learn more as well! Truly engaging and thought provoking regarding the future of music education.” – Fran Roach, Kingsbury Green Academy

“FutureDJs offer something unique and new for schools, combining musical creativity with their passion for, and insight into, electronic music. They’re articulate and resourceful, and have an amazing sound system that will impress any child and teacher with an interest in using new technologies for sound.” – Mark O’Donnell, Master at Westminster Under School


Our Training & Development

All FutureDJs tutors across the country are professional DJs who teach the carefully designed FutureDJs curriculum. Our curriculum encourages tutors to use students’ own musical interests but covers all aspects of electronic music in a structured way. It is designed to prepare students to achieve top marks in their GCSE music performances and help them to be confident and versatile performers.

While we want our students to learn from fantastic professional DJs, we know that being a great DJ doesn’t automatically make you a great educator. We have a strict screening process and all FutureDJs tutors complete evaluation and training before they begin to work with us. They then receive regular quality assurance visits and training to ensure they are the forefront of both DJ-ing and educational best practice. We’ll also do the lesson timetabling and provide regular reports on student progress.

Our tutors find it extremely rewarding to pass on their skills to the next generation. By working with young people in schools they can help to ensure that the music industry continues to thrive and stay in touch with the latest trends.
