Aspiring DJs in a spin with free training course in Sheffield

Have your say

A free 22-week course for DJs is being run by a Sheffield charity - with the chance to spin discs at their disability friendly nightclub.

The Tuesday sessions are being run by experts from Under The Stars and will teach all the essential skills.

The group runs events at the Hallam student union Hubs building as well as music workshops that have created bands, DJs and music producers.

Their new course will develop technical DJ skills, teach about music selection, how to play to audiences, how to record and promote a mix tape, as well as directing them to future opportunities. It is available to unemployed over 19s or people on disability living allowance.

The course takes place at The Burton Street Foundation, Burton Street, Hillsborough from 10am until 3pm.
