With all due respect to Beck, you need more than two turntables and a microphone to be a DJ—you need some training. And the best place to get up to speed on the wheels of steel is the Scratch DJ Academy. Founded in New York in 2002 by the late Jam Master Jay of Run DMC, Scratch­—which now has locations in New York, Los Angeles, and Miami—uses classroom lectures and hands-on tutorials to give aspiring producers and DJs the skills to spin crowd-moving sets and lay down thumping beats. Naturally, the courses are guided by pros with plenty of street cred, with legends such as Grandwizzard Theodore (the inventor of the scratch), DJ Craze, and Grandmaster Caz taking turns in front of the class. Mention DETAILS when booking a six-week course over the phone and receive 10 percent off (a $300 value) your entire course fee.
