Angus Council's Power of Youth Fund
The DJ Discovery 8 is a four-week programme where young people learn the skills to create mixes using high-tech equipment. The young people will learn the fundamentals of DJing from the basics of rhythm and timing; to using filters, effects, scratching and looping. Effectively structuring a mix teaches young people to create and follow a plan, improve their timekeeping skills and problem solving; whilst thinking critically and creatively to enhance skills and technical repertoire. The programme will give the young people a core knowledge of the musical theory such as key changes, waveforms, and BPM and the ability to implement this into their mixes. Sessions are a combination of theory and practical lessons; the theory aspect of the sessions include presentations, games, and group work. DJ Discovery 8 is fully funded by Angus Council’s Power of Youth fund until April 2023.
