Hi there everyone! 
My name is Ross Palmer, and I’m going to show you how to become a DJ online, at a world-class level.
Here’s a demo mix of me showing off some of the skills you’ll learn in my online DJ school: vimeo dot com /274562678/eadfd0b470
I spent 13 years building my DJ technique, starting from vinyl turntables and moving all the way up through CDJs. I’ve been passionate about dance music since I was 11 years old, and I started professionally DJing when I was 18.
After years of honing my craft, I was fortunate enough to get a job at Armada Music*. During my time there, I worked alongside some of the best DJ’s in the world of dance music today. I witnessed that my own ideas and theories of DJing were superior to those of many signed artists, and it was a complete validation of the skills I had built over so many years. I had some tricks up my sleeve that even top people had never thought of!
Today, former students of my DJ school and direct mentors are currently playing to packed crowds at festivals, in stadiums, and at the world’s most prestigious clubs, including Tomorrowland, EDC, and more. And I can say with 100% confidence, these are the skills the world’s top DJ’s use to crush it in front of any crowd, every time. How you execute these skills is all about how often you practice, but these are definitely the technical foundations on which you can learn how to become a DJ online, at the highest level.
Sections 1 and 2 will cover all the basics of how to DJ – everything you need to get started. I’ll even give you some advice on purchasing your first deck and how to book your first show. 
In Section 3, the DJ classes dive deeper into the different tools needed to create a really engaging show, including how to make seamless transitions in a pinch and a super easy way to spice up even the most boring sections of a track. I will even walk you through creating a playlist to fill a 1-hour set, which is a lot longer than it seems if you’re doing it right. 
Section 4 will focus in on advanced techniques that will help you learn how to be a DJ like the pros. In addition, you will learn how to mix faster and more precise, as well as secret tricks the pros use to make their show sound larger than life. Finally, we will talk about showmanship and how to really polish your performance to take your DJ’ing to the highest level.
My former students and good friends are signed to the world’s best labels right now, Spinnin’, Ultra, Revealed and more. I’ve been very fortunate to learn how to DJ from professionals at the highest level, and now you can learn to DJ online, anytime, anywhere.
But don’t take my word for it: have a look at the reviews of my DJ school and see for yourself – thousands and thousands of happy students have already taken the course and left their reviews.
And it’s not just the course itself, many students have already asked hundreds of questions in the Q&A section, and I do my best to answer every single one. We’ve built a community where all can learn how to improve, and that’s the massive value of this course.

Ross Palmer has always had a passion for cutting-edge technology, knowledge, and creative expression.
At the young age of 11, Ross started programming Z80 assembly language on his calculator while listening to electronic music religiously, watching the Simpsons, and speed-solving Rubik’s Cubes (personal best avg. of 15.75 seconds!) That should tell you all you need to know about this highly unusual individual.
His work is at the intersection of creativity, business, and technology – all without taking ourselves too seriously.
Some highlights:

• One of the first to get serious about live streaming DJing, typically performing daily for over 20,000 observers with 40,000 fans/followers.
• Audio engineered records for major artists in Asia and on labels like Warner, Sony Latin, Armada Music.

What’s the common thread?
A love of bleeding-edge technology and how it relates to human expression and making money. Because without money and the right tools, no one can survive as an artist.
