Event description

Description

There's no question about it- DJs are the new rockstars. They headline festivals, dominate the airwaves, and play catchy hits that everyone loves. But how do they do it? What is it that makes a great DJ so great? What are they really doing with all of those knobs and buttons? What are they doing with those headphones all the time? And what in the world is that awesome music they're playing?

Bring your friends and join Professional DJs Dan Quinn & Kaivan "KB" Bazleh for our OontzKids Holiday DJ Camp at The Bowden- one of DFW's newest and most beautiful event spaces. Here we'll learn about what a DJ does, how and why they do it, and get hands on experience with real DJ equipment, ending with a showcase performance by each student on the last day.

Topics covered will include different genres of music and how DJs came about, the role of a DJ in the world of Spotify and Apple Music, basic music concepts such as beats, bars and tempos, beat matching, setting cues, song transitions, and even adding color to mixes with cool effects.

Each student will have their own workstation which includes a Pioneer DJ Controller, speaker, headphones, laptop computer loaded with DJ-friendly music and Pioneer Rekordbox software.

FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

We recommend that all attendees be at least 8 years old. We find that students aged 10+ are the most successful.

What do I need to bring to the event?

Please bring lunch! And if you'd like, bring a USB stick with your favorite music (not necessary).

If you bring a cell phone, please keep it silenced and out of sight. Not only do we find these devices distracting to the class as a whole, but we find that students who use cell phones in class usually don't absorb the class material and don't do well in their (optional) performance. We want everyone to get the most out of their OontzKids experience.


Can I bring my own DJ Equipment to class?

While you're welcome to bring in any of your own equipment (DJ controllers, laptop computers, etc), OontzKids Instructors can not take time away from teaching others in the class in order to support, troubleshoot, or setup, outside equipment. We want to help you, but want the focus of the class to remain on teaching DJ concepts to everyone. We have worked hard to assure that every student has a quality, functioning, and streamlined setup to work on.
