When Terry’s friend recommended Lisa Lashes School of Music and said it would impact his life, Terry had no clue how true that would turn out to be. Bethany from PTS Training Academy spoke to him about his journey on the 8-week accelerated course, which resulted in him becoming Establish84.
When I asked him how much experience he had on the decks before the course, I shouldn’t have been surprised to hear: “none, no experience”. It sounds so amazing to think that at the start you could have zero understanding of how things like mixing, beatmatching, and scratching work (other than maybe the last one being the cat ruining the wallpaper…again). And then…at the end, fully realising your potential as a DJ.
Establish84 was born!
The course built up Terry’s confidence on the decks and he was astonished at how much he was able to learn in such a short amount of time, soon enough he chose his DJ name. “What I really loved though, was that we were all in the same room for the same reason” – this created an instant bond with his classmates. So despite finding social interaction difficult, he was able to form fantastic friendships, to the extent that the group are planning events together and hoping to meet for a night out.

We all had a favourite teacher in school, right? For Terry it was tough to decide, but he decided Rob Tissera needs a special mention. “But all the tutors are brilliant. Each of them do a different thing really well” – and those different things all fuse together to create the experience that is Lisa Lashes School of Music.
There is no doubt in Terry’s voice when he describes the school as “the best thing I ever did”. And so far it has seriously furthered his journey in music, he is hoping to be featured on Heart FM, and he has some gigs lined up already. As for what he’s doing next? Well, we’ll have to wait and see!
