Adult DJ Lessons

DJ Lessons For Adults In Huntington Beach

Since 2004, Van Tuyl Music Academy is Huntington Beach’s original school for adult DJ lessons.

Learning a new skill or hobby as an adult is a completely different experience from learning it as a child. Adults have so many more questions than children, you need further explanation and have responsibilities that affect your ability to consistently practice. While many schools and teachers are content to just teach the notes of a new song each week, we go beyond, teaching you the rhythm, theory and musical secrets behind what makes your favorite song, your favorite song.

Making the commitment to becoming a musician as an adult is something special, but not something easy. You need a guide who can help you through the challenges that are thrown at you, that you may not understand. The music teachers at VTMA have years of experience mastering the differences in adult and child music education.

Can you learn to play guitar on YouTube? 

Absolutely! YouTube DJ lessons are an amazingly helpful tool in becoming a better DJ. However, there are a few things that YouTube or music learning sites will never be able to help you with. Specifically:

  • They can’t tell you if you’re doing it right – Did that note sound good? Are you getting better? Who knows!
  • They can’t answer your questions – video music lessons are geared for short attention spans to maximize clicks, so you mostly get a quick overview of whatever song or concept the video is teaching
  • They’re often wrong – there are some fantastic instructors online, we know some of the best ones personally, but for every good online instructor, there are thousands who simply either don’t know what they’re talking about, or don’t know who to teach it clearly

Most Importantly

  • They’re not focused on YOU! – If you have a family, you know what happens. The moment you sit down to do anything for yourself, you get bombarded with questions about weekend schedules, children shouting, a dog barking for no reason, or that little someone wants to push all of the buttons while you’re practicing. When you come in for your weekly, private music lesson at VTMA, it’s exactly that, p-r-i-v-a-t-e. Just you, the instructor, your guitar and some great music.

Learning how to DJ, spin and mix is one of the true final frontiers in music today. With the advent of digital mixing consoles and DJ programs, the way we listen to music has truly changed. Our program is on the cutting edge of both the technology for DJ lessons, and also what styles and genres of music are influencing the way that technology is used. Students are encouraged to explore many styles of music, sub-genres, and remixes so that they can master the beats inside their minds, and mix them perfectly for the crowd below.

Taking DJ lessons at Van Tuyl Music Academy is an experience unlike any other. Our facilities have clean rooms, the latest technology and a large music library. Since 2004, Van Tuyl Music Academy is Huntington Beach, Costa Mesa and Orange County’s original school of rock, metal, funk, pop, blues, jazz and live performance for DJ’ing. We’re so much more than just a music factory of DJ lessons in OC.
