Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 16, 2013
TurntableU, the world's premier online DJ school, introduces services for aspiring artists giving them access to renowned DJs from around the world. Developed by Los Angeles-based DJ, DJ Icy Ice, TurntableU is the first online DJ school offering students around the world direct access to high quality DJ tutorials.
“The inspiration for creating TurntableU was based on my own experience,” said DJ Icy Ice. “DJing helped me come out of my shell as a teenager and I am fortunate that I turned a hobby into a career.” He continued, “it was hard for me to find resources to learn my craft. With TurntableU, I brought together renowned DJs from around the world to provide lessons for aspiring artists. I know firsthand how music can change your life. If I can encourage and help a handful of people, I would be happy.”
TurntableU is privately funded by DJ Icy Ice and his partners. His passion for the craft and offering resources readily unavailable is the force that drives him.
“With so many music programs budget cuts in schools, there’s needs to be alternative resources,” shared Ice. “TunrntableU is one of those alternatives.”
According to a study titled “The Role of the Fine and Performing Arts in High School Dropout Prevention,” by the Center for Music Research at Florida State University, “Students at risk of not successfully completing their high school educations cite their participation in the arts as reasons for staying in school. Factors related to the arts that positively affected the motivation of these students included a supportive environment that promotes constructive acceptance of criticism and one where it is safe to take risks.”
A resource like TurntableU can make a difference for students. Offering resources and education, the website encourages students to take a chance and learn what they love to do most.
The TurntableU curriculum is structured to sharpen talents, emphasize fundamentals, and define strengths and weaknesses in order for someone to become a successful DJ.
