Welcome to the virtual classroom...

Ghetts, Goldie, Tiffany Calver and more have joined education platform FutureDJs.

The new initiative is aimed at expanding music education in school, utilising virtual music classroom Virtuoso.

FutureDJs is accredited by London College of Music, while exams were introduced in partnership with the University of West London.

The new initiative will see a number of top UK artists offering their time, across a diverse array of courses that range from DJing to production and MCing.

The first masterclass kicks off on August 30th, with Ghetts spending an hour with students to discuss the art of MCing.

Following this, students can expect further classics from Goldie, Tiffany Calver, house legend Danny Howard, and more.

Ghetts comments: “FutureDJs brings music education up to date with DJing, MCing and production lessons and it doesn’t matter where you live or what school you go to. Hopefully it’ll give more kids the chance to get into music..."

Austen Smart, Co-Founder of FutureDJs, commented: “FutureDJs is all about making music education accessible for all. Our ambition is to unlock the creativity of as many young people as possible, and carry on inspiring the next generation of MCs, artists and creators - especially during this time of social distancing and reduced education”. 

FutureDJs courses kick off this week, and are open to students of all ages - sign up HERE.
