The DJ workshops introduce the participants to work with sounds, learning to “think like a DJ”, selecting music, mashing up music and genres, remixes, beat matching, BPMs, and EQing, and a general pedagogic understanding of sound and mood curation.
Taking a DJ workshop with Future Female Sounds, prepares you for working professionally as a DJ. You will both learn the technical skills needed, and be mentored to learn how to promote yourself and get bookings.
We also teach master classes, that focus on in-depth DJ skills such as beat matching, loops, sampler, controllers and turn tables. The master classes typically work with softwares Rekorbox, Serato DJ, and Serato Lite.
The DJ advanced master classes also include cultural management, focused on how to navigate the music industry as a woman, how to get bookings, promote yourself, create and distribute mixtapes, working in alternative creative industries and much more.
The aim of the workshops are short and long-term depending on the level of the participants. Workshop instructors are exclusively female dj’s, producers or music industry professionals, offering female role-models in a safe space for girl’s to learn, express, and connect.
For our DJ Workshops, no skills are needed, just an interest in music and DJ'ing. Several of our DJ students have gone on to feature on our booking roster – thereby the booking agency also functions as a talent incubator and catalyst, where we give talented new DJs the opportunity to get booked.
Many girls and womxn all over the world want to DJ, they just don't have the support, or technical knowledge, or equipment - and that's what we hope to make possible for girls and womxn worldwide.
Our DJ workshops take place in a safe space. This means that we are only girls and womxn in the room, which is a space of encouragement and mutual respect.
In this space, you can be who you are, without feeling the pressure to perform or to behave in a certain way. We offer smaller teams and more instructors to ensure that everyone is heard, and we work openly and creatively, with a goal of improving overall mixing skills and creativity.
