Today, over 100 high school students were treated to a very informative and highly entertaining class: Introduction to Today’s DJ Techniques taught by Musicians Institute’s own DJ Charlie Sputnik at The Grammy Museum. World class DJ and master instructor DJ Sputnik (Charles Chemery) is also the Program Chair for MI’s newly launched Certificate in DJ Performance and Production.
The Grammy Museum class covered “old school” vinyl DJ techniques, and an in-depth demonstration of creative computer-based DJ techniques using the software Serato.
Now in our fifth year of sponsoring outreach classes at The Grammy Museum that span contemporary music styles, sampling, beatmaking, film composing, music technology, music business, songwriting, music video creation, Foley techniques and rhythm workshops. We are proud to have shared the expertise, diverse knowledge and incredible talents of MI’s faculty with nearly 6,000 high school and middle school students from the greater LA area thru our outreach class program at The Grammy Museum!
We’re keeping our fingers on the pulse of the music industry, and continue to open the door of opportunity and creative experience thru the power of music education!
