Future DJs

This week, Yr 7 & 8 pupils were treated to a showcase performance today, thanks to Future DJs with guest DJ, Lisa Lashes.

Future DJs is an education business with a large social impact for young people supplying professional visiting DJ and Music Production tutors to schools nationwide (in the same way as traditional instrumental tutors).

Tutors deliver a unique programme of study created by professionals, starting at Key Stage 2 and running through to Key Stage 5, in accordance with the new AQA, OCR and Eduqas GCSE music specifications.

One of the key focuses of the organisation is simply to get more young people into music, and in turn more students taking GCSE and A-Level Music.

The ‘Pop Up’ Roadshow is highly engaging for students. Austin and Scott Smart came to Studley to show our pupils some DJing essentials. Lisa Lashes then showed off her mixing skills and some of our pupils were invited onto the stage to try the decks.

After the event, pupils registered their interest in joining our peripatetic programme, starting in September.
