Once selected, you will be trained in our 3-week ((305 DJ Training Program)) where you will learn the structure of our class, advanced mixing techniques, and much more. You will receive unique, one-on-one instruction, catered to your personal needs, with our Master DJs. This training will help you master your craft as a DJ and comes at no cost to you. We will meet for 6-8 hours/week for 3 weeks. There is an additional 10-15 hours of at-home practice required.
If you have a full-time job during normal business hours (9 to 5), you would need to receive partial time off from your employer in order to train for 3 weeks.
Once training is complete, you will begin DJing 2-6 classes per week. Your class schedule will ramp up over the course of a few months, eventually DJing 8-12 classes per week. There are a number of opportunities at ((305)) including the unique ability to DJ during off-peak hours and to work at an exciting start-up with like-minded, fun-loving people. A position as a ((305)) DJ is a great compliment to your artistic career. The hours are consistent and part-time and do not interfere with most DJ gigs.
