GOdj: Girls Only DJ Summer Camp

9:00 am - 1:00 pm

In partnership with our friends at AM Project, GOdj Summer Camp will introduce girls to entertaining and creative way to express themselves and be empowered through digital music – DJing. Our course will challenge them with new technology, creative thinking, developing the skills to work as a team, and complete a project for presentation (which will be our “Party on the Patio” held at the end of class).

DJ Camp with The AM Project is an adventure in technology and music that provides students hands-on experience in digital audio mixing and cloud-based music production. This camp is led by a talented mix of professional DJ’s, all experienced in learning environment instruction. Visits by guest DJs and industry professionals are also part of the camp experience, giving students a chance to learn from those working in the business. Days are structured but permit extraordinary opportunities for creative and independent learners. Camp concludes with an amped-up audio experience, the GOdj Camp’s “Party on the Patio”! Each DJ creates a personal set to showcase their talents to family and friends in a fun summer setting at ArtPace.

We will begin with a brief background on the history of DJing and music genres which naturally leads to the introduction of a DJ set up, in which 10 teams (2 per team) are formed for this project. Our students will learn beat matching and how to mix music using a Pioneer Controller and Serato Software. Our teams will learn immediately with hands on. This engagement keeps their attention and holds their excitement as they learn to blend and create a cool set.

The goal of the camp is to get them interested in Djing while preparing to play a 2 track set on the Friday closing the camp. The closing party will be held on the patio at Artpace and family and friends are invited.
