The SpinOut DJ Skool 2003

Our mission: Spread the good vibes!

The Idea

Find a group of deserving keen music loving teenagers dreaming of life as a DJ and/or an electronic musician, invite them to spend two weeks at the SpinOut Lounge practising the art of mixing on decent equipment, lay on some hands-on tutoring, provide assistance for transport, rope in everyone you know to help out and hope it all ends the year of 2003 on a high note.


The Students

We had over 200 applications and it was really difficult not to accommodate everyone however we made a plan and accepted 70 people, of which 55 have registered. We split them up into three groups for Hands On sessions, and have group sessions every Saturday, where we have formal presentations and workshops.

Here is the Student List.

The Course

It runs over two weeks from December the 6th. Here is the time table
