Course Overview

A DJ may well be the perfect musician of the 21st century, combining a mastery of mixing and track selection to set the tone and vibe of the dance floor. However, the most acclaimed DJs of our time are no longer limited by a dance floor—their productions reach listeners across the world, bringing them a level of recognition that was previously unimaginable. They are the DJ-Producers, and you’ve heard their music before ever getting to see them play. Their productions play an essential role by serving as their calling card around the world.


For those DJs who have their sights set on global success, our cutting-edge DJ-Producer program is designed to accelerate your growth in the music industry by combining the insights of our Pro-DJ and EMP courses. Students will learn to master the requirements of the dance floor as well as to produce their own tracks.
