I have no musical background or experience. Can I take one of your DJ or Music Production courses?
Absolutely! No prior experience is necessary to take our classes. Our Beginner, Core, and Advanced courses begin at the same starting point. Just come with an enthusiasm to learn.
I have some musical background or experience. Can my instructor begin from my level of knowledge?
Yes. Our instructors are happy to tailor the curriculum to your level of experience so you don’t have to re-learn things you already know. Feel free to have a chat with us beforehand to communicate this to your instructor.
What’s the difference between all the courses and how do I choose?
Courses with more modules consist of learning more advanced techniques and more in-depth learning material. If you’re serious about getting to know the craft and want an immersive experience, we recommend the Intermediate or Advanced courses.
What days of the week are classes held? How do I schedule my first lesson?
Private classes are not fixed to particular days and are held any time during our studio hours. Classes are scheduled on a flexible basis, usually once or twice per week, to accommodate your schedule. Once you have paid and registered for a course, we will get in touch to schedule the first class.
Group DJ and Music Production classes are held weekly on the day indicated on their respective pages.
Do I need to bring anything for classes?
We recommend bringing your own laptop for an optimal interactive experience for Music Production classes, but it is not absolutely necessary. Otherwise, we have all the equipment ready for you in the studio. You do not need to buy your own music equipment unless you wish to practice your learning at home. In that case, check out our store to grab your own instruments!
What is the language of instruction?
All classes are taught in English. However, the learning material is very hands-on and easy to learn regardless.
How do I pay for a course?
Payment can be made by bank transfer, cash, or credit card/Paypal. After you submit your order you will receive our bank details. You can pay in cash upon your first lesson.
Can a friend and I take lessons together?
If you want to learn in a social setting, consider joining one of our Group Course. Otherwise, our courses are 1 to 1 by design, but some exceptions may be made. Get in touch with us to discuss further!
Can I come by the studio to have a look around and ask about courses?
Yes. Our studio hours are Mon – Fri: 11am – 7pm // Sat: 12pm – 4pm. Let us know before you drop by if convenient.
If I can’t make a scheduled lesson what do I need to do?
Don’t worry! If you can’t make a scheduled lesson then you only need to contact us at least 3 hours before your lesson via email at email@example.com OR WhatsApp/Phone Call on +852 9422 0367. If you have the contact details of your instructor, you can also liaise with them direct but we ask that you also let us know so we can free up the room for other students.
If I can’t make a scheduled lesson will my lesson be cancelled & my fees lost?
No. We will simply reschedule your lesson to a date/time that is available for you, the instructor and the room your lesson will be in.
I’m in a group course, will my lesson be rescheduled if I can’t make it?
Unfortunately no. As it is unfair to other students whom attended the class we will not reschedule the group course lessons. However we will try to summarise what was taught in the previous lesson that you missed and give you practise time during the next lesson to catch-up as best as possible. One off private tuition is also available as an option if you really want to catchup.
I’m in a group course and the majority of people can’t make the following lesson, can the lesson be rescheduled?
Yes. If the group agrees to it we can reschedule the following lesson to the following week. As a rule we try to avoid schedule group lessons during public holiday’s as we understand this is a popular time for students to take holidays.
I’m going away for a time, can I pause my lessons?
Yes. We allow for up to 4 month pause on your lessons, however after 4 months your course will expire if you don’t begin lessons again.
If during my course I need to stop, can I cancel my course and get a refund?
No. Once you start your course there are no refunds on remaining lessons. If the circumstances are that you may restart lessons we will look at possibly pausing your course for an extended period of time beyond our standard 4 months. This will be treated on a case by case basis however.
If I have a complaint or am dissatisfied with my lessons, who can I talk too?
We take complaints and customer satisfaction very, very seriously. Start by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org directly (not your instructor) and explain the nature of the issues. We will always look at each case very carefully and work with you to resolve & improve the situation as quickly as possible. We really cherish your trust in our professionalism and passion for what we do, so helping us improve is very welcomed.
