First DJ lesson

The First DJ Lesson

For weeks I looked forward to this moment! Today I had my first official DJ lesson at the Pioneer Pro DJ school, location Amersfoort. It was awesome! My teacher, DJ Mike Lewis, taught me a lot during my the first lesson. He’s a really great DJ teacher. I have luck to have him!

I’ve had lessons on a big professional Pioneer DJ set (CDJ-2000 Nexus and DJM-900). Wauw! Check the video to see me in action.
