Pioneer DJ Institute lecturers, Terence Mathe and Elster Pieterse, spoke to us more about their school’s courses and how beneficial these courses are. The school was opened two years ago, in 2014, it’s an official Pioneer DJ Educational Partner and all the lecturers are Pioneer DJ Certified Lecturers. Pioneer DJ Institute is located on 45 Van Riebeeck Avenue at Edenvale, Johannesburg. The institute is also a store, they sell DJ gear or accessories; headphones, headphone bags, stickers, t-shirts and sound system equipment; mixers, studio microphones, CDJ’s, controllers and speakers.

The online course is offered for those who aspire to be DJ’s and probably stay far or would not be able to attend the classes, it isn’t that expensive, only R 1, 199 – 00. DJ courses differ, they have Pioneer Pro DJ Courses, Pioneer Turntablism DJ Courses, to mention a few. Music Production courses cater for Fruity Loops, FL Studio, Ableton and Ableton Live. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced, there is a production course for you, and they are a one on one.

For those who want to practise, there are practice sessions which can be booked and a lecturer may assist or guide you. Their practise sessions range from one hour to five hours. On top of that, your session can be video recorded, edited and you would be given a DVD, all for a cost.
