Where Do You Offer Your DJ Lessons

I live in New Westminster, British Columbia which is located past Vancouver, thru Burnaby and you will find New Westminster in between Burnaby and Surrey, BC. I am fairly close to the New Westminster skytrain station as well as the 22nd Street skytrain station or a short walk from the Columbia street skytrain station. Douglas college is about 5 mins away, so I am fairly easy to get to from anywhere in the lower mainland.

I don’t mind travelling, but I do charge extra for the amount of travelling involved, as well as the amount of DJ equipment I must bring with me and the frequency of the off site dj lessons. I currently have DJ students in Burnaby, Richmond, Port Coquitlam, Surrey and Abbotsford.

Make sure you take a look at my music production lessons too. I will teach you all the basics of using Ableton to produce EDM music, Hip Hop music, Dance music, Bass music or any other popular genre out there these days.

Call me today as I get very busy in the summer time.
