I knew my husband would totally love this since he loves dance music. I signed us both up as an anniversary gift
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 20, 2008
Dater's looking to avoid (or even dreading) the standard "dinner and a movie" routine, can now turn to DJ4Life's "moonlighting DJ" (http://www.dj4life.org/specials.htm) package. This "road less traveled" activity equips dater's that have an interest in dance music with the very basics of DJ'ing, while providing the atmosphere and venue to impress even the most discerning dates.
"If you're looking for a different dating experience, moonlighting DJ for 2 is it. It's a far cry from the usual. It shows your date that you've put some thought into the date. Worst case scenario, you can walk away and learn something useful," says Sasha Tosic (http://www.tallsasha.com) who is the founder of the DJ4Life academy. "There are people out there who want to DJ but just don't know how to get started. This is the perfect opportunity."
Instructors are very methodical about answering C.O.M.E., an acronym that the academy coined to systematically answer questions of neophytes. The C.O.M.E. acronym stands for: C for cost, O for objective, M for Motivation, and E for expectation.
The class is two hours long. Students will learn everything from the various DJ equipment options to get started, all the way to performing their first mix in an intimate and personal setting. Classes are one-on-one, and there is even an optional dinner package at San Francisco's chic venue, Supperclub (http://www.supperclub.com), where guests dine on sheer white beds while being entertained with live acts.
From "first dates" to a 10-year wedding anniversary present, the academy has students from various backgrounds with different motivations. "I knew my husband would totally love this since he loves dance music. I signed us both up as an anniversary gift," says Christina Bosemark, owner of Gallery 415 (http://www.g415.com).
San Francisco locals are not the only people who seem to be flocking to the lessons; out- of-towners (and sometimes even out of state) folks are also mixing it up at the academy. Aaron Chan was visiting friends and family in the San Francisco bay area when they heard about the academy. "DJ'ing is something I've always wanted to do. So I took my girlfriend," says Chan.
Learning how to DJ has, until recently, been relegated to people who have the time, patience and determination to sort through and learn the dizzying array of equipment, wires and musical genres.
Mention beat-matching (the process of synchronizing two beats from different songs) to any DJ'ing neophyte and there will surely be a sigh of frustration. "DJ4Life was the compass that pointed me to the fast track in right direction during the beginning…it minimized the frustration factor," says Lee Decker who attended the class with his partner. "Plus it turned out to be one of the best dates of my life."
Located in the heart of San Francisco's SOMA district, there won't be any shortages of things to do before, or after the lessons. There are plenty of bars, clubs and restaurants within an eight block radius of the academy. During the day, the academy is a short jaunt to San Francisco's main financial and shopping districts.
Classes are held by appointment only and class times are based on availability.
