Need some beginner DJ Tips? No problem, we got you!
One of the best things about learning how to DJ is that you don’t need music lessons!! No need to know how to read music, you just need to know your music. One aspect about music theory in DJing that’s important for all disc jockey’s to know is harmony.
Understanding how harmony works and learning to mix records in the perfect tune, in the words of DJ Khaled that’s a major key!! If your transition between songs sucks people will hate your sets and not want to hire you again, so mastering the perfect transitions, blends, and harmonies between records is the first step to becoming a great DJ.
In today’s digital technology age, creating mixes are pretty easy because the software does most of the work for you but there are some flaws to the system. Depending on the software, the key detection could be off by a few notches and the mixes won’t always be sonically pleasing to people listening. Developing that special ear for yourself and learning key detection is another major step closer to becoming a great DJ.
