The Funky Academy

The Funky DJ Academy was formed by three like-minded people with a passion for music. Hugh, Miles and Sam. They entered the “ITV’s” peoples millions competition and the public had to vote which organization should win, to their surprise they won an amazing £50,000 and the dream of starting up The Funky Academy became reality.
The Funky Academy offers training and advice on every aspect of DJ’ing, Music production, Radio broadcasting and much more. We pride ourselves with having a great team of coaches all experienced working DJ and some with over 15 years DJ’ing as residents in clubs, bars and for many private and corporate events. We also regularly have other well-known guest “DJ’S” to come in and meet with our students. Our coaches have a real passion and working knowledge of turntables, CD decks and all aspects of modern digital ‘controller’ DJ’ing.

The Funky Academy offers workshops to schools and the public and our prices are aimed to be affordable and excellent value for money. The Funky Academy is open to anyone, adults, boys, girls, young and old, whether they are beginners or experienced DJ’s wanting to polish up their skills or perhaps learn a new style or DJ system.

Whether you are interested as a hobby or want to carve a career, we can help you to master your requirements.

We are fully insured with public liability for DJ’ing and teaching and all our coaches have current DBS security checks.

In a two hour starter session you will learn all the basics and the understandings and by the end of the 2 hours which can be quite intense as there’s a lot to take in we will have you beat matching using a controller and the aid of software on a Laptop.
