More detailed description >

The best way to stop saying "wikki-wikki" out loud is to learn how to play it on the turntables!

The introductory scratching lesson is the first step to learning the equipment, techniques, and history of the art in a fun, hands-on group setting!

Professional instructors and producers with hits on Beatport, the largest DJ and electronic music community, will teach the basics of scratching with real turntables and digital controllers.

The 90-minute option will introduce participants to the basics of scratching, including the 15 must-know secrets about the art. It offers a hands-on experience in a fun, group setting. Enjoy complimentary beverages while you let your creative juices flow!

The 4-hour option, led by scratch battle champion DJ Pone, provides a more extensive look into the world of scratching. Students will leave with a deeper knowledge of scratching techniques, mixing, and more --- all with the help of a DJ legend! Complimentary beverages and lunch will be served during the half-day group lesson option.
