Mix & Scratch DJ Academy 101 - Spring 2017

 

DJ students will be using this workshop to consider their own DJ identity. This will be demonstrated through a DJ name and a personally designed and live recorded, mix tape. The students will each designate a purpose to their mixtapes as well (dance party mix, a mix for someone, a mix of all my favorite songs, a mix for an event...). This mix will stay as a digital form and be burned onto a cd for students to take with them as well as be posted on the ICATEENS website with a brief description of the objective for the mixtape.
