This course is the real deal! Everything is taught by insanely talented tutors who are some of the biggest names in dance music, but also amazing people who take pleasure in seeing the students excel. The people you meet on the course become like a family, and the opportunities that come from this course are incredible.
The past 12 weeks have been nothing short of life changing. When I first walked in, I was at a low point, down on confidence, self-belief, and motivation for pretty much anything. I've been DJing on vinyl for a few years, and Lisa was a huge inspiration for me to get into it. She fuelled my love of dance music, and when I saw her start a music school in my town, I knew I had to be on it. I expected to be taught how to DJ on modern equipment. What I ended up with is far more. I learned exactly what is needed to make it in the music industry, covering every aspect, including how to organise, promote, and run an event. The most important thing the course has given me is a circle of friends for life, who all share a common love of music.Johnny Lester 2018 Student
I can vouch for this course! I have just completed the 12 weeks, the amount of stuff you learn is amazing! I wasn’t sure if you could learn everything in such a short period. But looking back, I know I have come a long way! I even had the pleasure of going to B2B with BK at the event we planned! You seriously won’t be disappointed.Nikki Bothwick-Adams2018 Student
This has been incredible! I’ve learnt how to use the Pioneer DJ setup, which will help me get DJ gigs (couple in the pipeline). [There have been] music production masterclasses which helped my music get better overnight, artist image and social media advice, and on a personal level it has given me confidence and made me a better person. Thank you to all the tutors who gave so much information; every week was interesting.Martyn Boswell 2018 Student
The 12 weeks at Lisa Lashes School of Music have been inspirational, exciting, and fabulous! It has been so much more than a learning experience. It has helped us improve our mixing techniques, especially in the use of colour SFX and in the creation of 'the moment' for the dance floor. It has shown us some fantastic production techniques courtesy of Brandon, Rob and Ben Bk, which we are now using on our original music.
It has shown us how to promote ourselves, manage social media more effectively, and promote an event, including advice on Health and Safety from Anne Savage and other experts in the field. But it has also done so much more than all that. The quality of the teaching and standing of the tutors is world-class. And the spirit of community, collaboration, and friendships that have been fostered and created between the students mean this is only a beginning. To all at LLSOM, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for such a fantastic experience!Jacqueline Anne Palmer 2018 Student
During a challenging time in my life, LLSOM welcomed me and gave me something positive to focus on. I was accepted into the 12-week programme after coming back from Ibiza!
Deborah and Lisa both made me feel like the sky was the limit, and I felt like I could achieve my aspirations no matter how big!
The tutors kept the place buzzing with positivity and were always happy to answer questions, whether you are a pro or a new person. The opportunities available here are massive, the help on offer is amazing, and the chances of networking are serious. Great course with famous people.Gambit Leroy Hendrickson 2018 Student
As soon as I saw Lisa Lashes doing a free course, I was absolutely adamant I would apply and upskill in areas [such as] event management and music production. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was wowed with the classroom from day one. The tutors and lesson one got me excited and gripped for more!
I can honestly say the course is unique, and people from all backgrounds, skills, and knowledge are involved. You all get a bespoke learning development chart to help you focus on your learning and development. The course is flexible. I learned so much with effects, especially music production and event management. All the things I have managed to get really involved in and work with the best tutors in the music scene.
I was chosen to play B2B with Lisa, who is such an inspiration to me and who I admire much. I have nothing but the utmost respect for the woman. It has been an honour, a truly immense experience, and a pleasure, and proud to have Lisa Rose-Wyatt and Rob Tissera as my mentors! The future looks fantastic, and I love life, and the journey has been taken to a new level. It was my dream to play with the number one female DJ in the world, and it came true!Sarah Louisa 2018 Student
This journey came when I was out of work and felt lost about where to go. I work in a different field, have always loved music, especially the rave scene. I've been listening to rave music since 93' and raving since 99' of the Days of Helter Skelter, Dreamscape United Dance etc. I fell in love with Hardcore music. I have witnessed the scene grow and shrink over the years and come back into rave music in a more significant way four years ago - religiously going back to as many festivals and raves as possible.
I decided to work in my spare time on learning music production. I had even planned to create a computer game to promote the music.
This course came along. It was like it was meant to be! I had to get on this course! To be honest, I didn't fully believe it when I saw it and applied anyways. Then boom! I was catapulted into this knowledge base of DJing, production and creating events! These are precisely the things I need to know about to help me along my journey!Chris Singer 2018 Student
This course has taught me so much and is an experience I’m never going to forget. The tutors are there when you need them and help you with any advice you need. Twelve weeks have flown by, and I’m so thankful for this opportunity.Luke Vincent 2018 Student
I can’t believe 12 weeks have just gone by like that. Unbelievable. What a great experience it’s been actually to be able to learn from people in the industry. This has got me on the road to production, which was my main reason for coming on the course, and in the best possible way…to have played the track we all made on the course with BK at the end of my set. With Lisa Lashes? Epic.
I came with many years of experience on the decks, but I have certainly learned a few more things that I didn’t know before. The next step is to get myself blasted out to the world and known as the great DJ I am. This course has certainly given me the confidence and knowledge to do this, especially regarding social media.
To have met such brilliant, like-minded people has been exceptional. Indeed, I feel I’ve made friends for life. This course offers so much more than just music. It’s been a fantastic journey, and I would do it all over again. Thank you so much, Lisa and Deborah, for what a team you are, and a massive thank you to all the mentors in the course. You’re all so accommodating and skilled at what you do.Naomi Nae Ellis 2018 Student
