About Scratch DJ Academy

Savage Fam has partnered with Scratch DJ Academy to give their students an expressive platform and further enrich the experience of The Freestyle Experiment by adding a DJ to our mix of Live Music, and Electronice Music Production.  Each month a Scratch Academy student or instructor will take residency at The Bar Exam.

Scratch DJ Academy’s mission is to provide education and access to the dynamic art form of the DJ and producer. Scratch lowers the barrier of entry to these crafts by providing access to amazing instructors, proven curriculum, state-of-the-art equipment, and scholarship opportunities. With over 15 course offerings, private lessons, and workshops, instruction is provided for DJs and producers of all interests, skill levels, and commitments.

Scratch provides a rich social community to promote the art form – both locally at our academies and through our online networks. Offering practice space, community events, and specialization workshops Scratch grants an inspirational and informed environment that encourages individual growth as well as collaboration between individuals of all backgrounds. Our online networks serve as a resource for DJ tips, new music, popular trends, socio-cultural topics, and discussion among music lovers.

In 2002, Rob Principe partnered with the great Jam Master Jay of Run DMC to bring his long held vision to life. If jazz can successfully be taught at every major university around the world, why isn’t the same done for the art form of the DJ? After all DJs are musicians and turntables are bestselling instruments. It was this question and the ensuing tireless work that spawned the now famous Scratch DJ Academy.

With the goal of lowering the barrier of entry to the art form of the DJ, Scratch’s historic first semester received media attention worldwide with instructors including Jam Master Jay, DJ Premier, A-Trak, Evil Dee, and many more. Scratch DJ Academy went on to sell out every semester during its first year and eventually moved to a permanent location in the East Village (where it is located today).

Over the next few years, Scratch opened additional locations in Los Angeles (2004), Miami (2005), Chicago (2013) and Atlanta (2014) as well as expanded its course offering to include music production. Today, Scratch teaches over 50,000 people how to DJ annually through its physical locations and national tours. Scratch has taught students from all 50 states, 35 different countries, and is widely recognized as the world leader in DJ and music production education.
