We will start with instruction in hip-hop history and then will teach you how to set up and use technique 1200 turntables to play the beautiful vinyl! You will select from our tremendous record collection and start to scratch and blend right away - from Marvin Gaye to the current hits, you'll be able to mix your favorite tracks like a professional DJ! This is as much about learning the history of DJing as it is about you having your own expierence of the culture and technology.
