SDS was an amazing experience for myself and my friend Charisma, who took the class together. Having no knowledge at all when we started, we managed to learn how to use a controller and had fun practising and learning with our own genre of music- Andrew is a great teacher, super friendly, and made the class a breeze. Would recommend this course to anyone! Thank you!

This school has changed my life! The course gives you everything you need to know for beginners and hones your intermediate skills as well. I cannot express how valuable it is to have one-on-one lessons with such an experienced teacher. You cannot get this anywhere else! Playing at Tribe was an amazing experience and it has allowed me to explore so many opportunities I never thought possible. You will not be disappointed!!

I'm a complete novice when it comes to DJ'ing and Andrew has been so patient and thorough explaining things to me ensuring I fully understand each lesson before moving on. His personality is so happy & infectious that I think anyone at any level of DJ'ing thinking of taking a few lessons would benefit greatly from him, I highly recommend his course.

Wauw! I really loved doing the Get club ready course! Everything was perfectly explained and I got it right away because of that! :) You'll get much more information than just mixing some songs together. It's about so much more than that. And SDS explained it perfectly to me. Happy I did the course! 100% motivated and ready to go!

Best School and Best Teacher In Australia! Nicest most friendly guy you could meet. The course is excellent, Andrew really packs in 15 years of experience into those 4 lessons! Couldn't and wouldn't be the DJ I am today without this course! I mean garenteed club shows in some of the best clubs around, who can say no to that! Andrew really does care about every person he teaches and will stick his neck out to give every person opportunities in the industry. Dead set 10 stars out of 5 if you ask me :)

Hands down the best teacher if you truly want to be a Dj. Andrew is awesome at connecting with people and using an individualised way to teach his amazing skills. I never would have thought I'd be playing at clubs so soon after 'graduating' yet SDS has equipped me with with these amazing skills. Not only do I have repeat gigs and interest from other events, but I am extremely confident behind the decks and it's all thanks to Andrew and SDS.

Jessica Bates

Having never touched a deck or mixer before, I had no idea whether DJ'ing was something I could realistically do. However, after my lessons with Andrew (who is an amazing teacher) I feel as though the sky is the limit. If you are curious about your own DJ abilities, take the plunge and go to Sydney DJ School, you won't regret it.
