Off Centre DJ School is Toronto's longest running DJ & Electronic music education facility established in 2004. Our mandate is simple: have fun with records and electronics! We strive to find new ways to teach and creatively express ourselves by playing with sound. At Off Centre we emphasize the roots of DJ culture: Vinyl, two turntables, and a mixer. Combined with modern software and most importantly studio artistry, the creative possibilities are endless. With the majority of learning being hands on, we encourage students to use their mistakes as a way of discovering new things.
Our focus is placed on technical aspects of mixing, scratching, and use of equipment, but we also highlight a DJ culture component to emphasize the music that exists beyond commercial hits. Secrets that take years to learn are revealed in a warm modern studio design featuring small class sizes for ease of communication.
AFTER SCHOOL DJ PROGRAM
Learn to mix, scratch, and DJ using your very own setup. Expertly tailored for ages 8 - 12 years.

MARCH BREAK & SUMMER CAMPS
Covering all the basics of mixing/scratching and use of equipment. This is a hands on course designed for the beginner who has little to no experience with DJing. The main focus of the Intro camp is to develop hand skills, basic music theory, and experiment with different ways of playing with sound on the turntables. We'll also introduce you to digital DJing with a look at the latest software. We'll compare the pluses and minuses of both approaches and examine how to integrate the skills of each. By the end of the week we'll have you beat matching, scratching, and blending your first 3 - 4 song set. This course is also a good way figure out the best equipment for you before making an investment. www.offcentredj.com/dj-camps.html
