Would definitely go back

I did a session with Terry to get some new ideas on how to DJ. Having been DJing for about 12 years, it was good to talk to and learn new things from an experienced DJ, including playing with some new equipment. Would definitely go back for another refresher.

Essential if you are serious about learning or improving skills

The team at On The Rise are awesome. They offer a plethora of knowledge and expertise and are seasoned DJ's and producers in their own rights. I have been DJ'ing for over 20 years and started with vinyl, then moved to CDJ's. I then decided to move into the digital world and learned Traktor. I spent a day at On The Rise learning all the basics and more! What a great day, loads of fun and essential if you are serious about learning or improving skills. Highly recommended!

PURE CLASS!!! Started at the basic level and within an hour was mixing tracks

PURE CLASS!!!! On the Rise DJ academy is the best! Terry and Jay are absolute legends and at the top of their game. I went to OTR with just a pure love of dance music and not a clue about DJing but wanted to learn, started at the basic level and within an hour was mixing tracks on CDJs. Starting with how tracks/music is laid out and built, then onto beat mashing, setting the pitch and how to blend tracks together. They both take the time to get to know you and the music genre you are into and carefully select tracks based around your preferences but are easy to learn with. You set the pace you want to learn at and they are experts in all aspects of the music business. They can teach you software or hardware specifics or provide unbiased advise all kit thats out their. I plan to go back soon for more advanced lessons on sampling with the tractor F1. Absolute top class!!! Could not recommend it enough whatever level your at.

Don’t waste time looking anywhere else!




The 3-day course by OTR is the perfect way to start DJ'ing from scratch. I've always loved music, but had never even touched a pair of decks. After the course though, I have the ability & tools to already create my own mixes with practice. Not only are Jay and Terry so knowledgeable about their craft, and flexible with scheduling, but they are also great fun to spend time with. My advice to anyone wishing to learn - don't waste time looking anywhere else!

I picked up far more than I expected too

I took part in the 8 week DJ course with Jay and Terry. I'm a complete beginner and probably a little older than the average starter to be honest. I picked up far more than I expected to. Both the guys are very experienced and incredibly helpful when it comes to imparting knowledge and even tailoring parts of the course to the requirements of each individual. They touched on much of the core fundamentals and delved into plenty of advanced fields as well. All in all I couldn't be happier, and once I've had time to practise and get myself up to scratch I'll definitely be back to do some one on one classes.

They trained me on my own pace

Found Jay and the Rise Team to be very professional and knowledgeable in the Field of DJ'ing. During the course they made me felt relaxed & comfortable. They trained me on my own pace. I would definitely recommend any new comer and experienced DJ to train or update them selves. I'm definitely looking forward for my second stint.

Highly recommended and already looking forward to my next lesson

Jay the tutor was great. We had a discussion about my goals and what I wanted from the lesson and he delivered all the things I wanted. His knowledge is great but he didn't run with it and was careful to ensure I was on board all of the time by encouraging me to ask questions and getting answers that made sense and built in my head the picture that I required in order to get to the next level of working with Traktor. Highly recommended and already looking forward to my next lesson.

The one to one experience was invaluable

The one to one experience was invaluable,I liked how the structure of the course was articulated across,which gave me a understanding of the ground work required and some fundamental basics of music structure which is crucial to the fun part of the course which is applying it to the practical side of DJ'ing. Fantastic.

Very knowledgeable crew

After countless years of playing vinyl I decided it's time to catch up with the digital world and got myself a Traktor s4 controller and Traktor DJ software. It looks quite daunting but after a day with Jay at On The Rise DJ Academy I have a good all round knowledge of the controller and software. More importantly the things I really needed to know he went through with me in depth and I now know inside out. Very knowledgeable crew, very good day, it's good to learn

Absolutely loved it!

It doesn't matter where you are at when it comes to DJing be it someone who is attending as a beginner or whether you are someone who is wanting to brush up or improve upon current skills, Since attending I have gained a number of skills that I never had when mixing in the bedroom before. Would highly recommend to any aspiring DJs out there, Terry and Jay have years of unrivalled experience between them. Absolutely loved it and once my work has cleared up I will 100% be going back in the near future!
