This may sound a little backwards, but we recently went to DJ school. Every month, Rhythm City DJ Skool hosts an orientation for people interested in becoming DJs as well as experienced DJs looking to increase their skill level. We were curious about the DJ school—located in our own backyard—and decided to check it out. Potential students can expect to learn the skills needed to be a mobile DJ, how to scratch and match beats and tips to market and promote themselves as professionals.
DJ Sama and Corey Feldman, owners of Rhythm City DJ Skool, have over 50 years of experience between them. DJ Sama is a very popular and respected mix DJ, on-air personality, TV host and music producer and Corey has been involved in the mobile DJ world since he was 15.
Vladimir Achille, 32, is a potential Rhythm City DJ Skool student who attended the orientation and is very interested in taking classes.
“I have three years of DJ experience, but I want to take professional classes and get way better,” Achille said. “I mostly do parties in the Haitian community, but I’m looking to expand so I can cater to anyone and everyone.”
