DJing is a trade with no limits. Whether you have a creative fire to fuel – or maybe just need some extra money to fuel a vehicle – the art of DJing can provide unique opportunities to those that embark on the journey.

About the Program

At the DJ Academy @ JamSpot, students will learn about and experience all of the many aspects to being a top-end DJ, and be able to discover what type of DJing interests them most. Based upon their interests, students can then choose individual “learning tracks” to learn more about a particular aspect of DJing:

  1. One learning track will teach about the art of mobile DJing, with a focus on the business and art of hosting parties. Students in this track are taught about how to run a DJing business, how to get gigs and how to price their services.
  2. The Turntablist track will focus on the art of the Turntablist, teaching many of the more technical aspects of the craft, and learning some of the classic techniques for mixing and scratching.

Students they may take both “tracks” – hopefully developing a very well-rounded DJ, capable of handling any party situation. There will be special guest instructors for these courses as well.

Lessons are open-ended, last one hour in length, and will involve hands-on instruction. Every student on their very first lesson will get the opportunity to actually play records and receive instant feedback.

The DJ Academy is led by Jeff Mader, known as “DJ Shyne” to most.

He has been fortunate enough to perform at hundreds of venues in the Northeast, but has been awarded the opportunity to work all over the United States, even landing gigs in Montego Bay, Jamaica! Jeff has worked mobile jobs for the likes of the New England Patriots, the Miss Teen USA pageant, and Converse, Inc.. Not to be forgotten, with over 500 wedding performances in his career, Jeff has found success when rocking parties with a more formal flair. As a club and college performer, Jeff has worked with countless international recording artists such as Busta Rhymes, Gavin DeGraw, Mr. Vegas, Nina Sky and many more. Organizations like Sparkxx Magazine, Skope Magazine, and the CLUTCH Network have all done features on “DJ Shyne” and his company.
