DJ Club Reflection 2

One of the main challenges I have faced is being able to put together all the new skills in one track. Given all of the techniques that we are learning are new to be, the first couple of sessions were very difficult when trying to actually mix songs together. In order to overcome this, I practised a lot with the basic skills to build up my foundation so that I would feel more comfortable adding in more complex songs. One of the ways I did this was under the guidance of the overseeing teacher who clearly explained the basic skills and gave us each time in the sessions to practice and ask questions. I also took initiative to listen to other DJ mixes in my spare time to get a better feel for the genre of music and spent some extra lunch times practising with the set. I have been very committed to learning this new skill as it is very different to what I usually do and although it has been difficult I am determined to persevere to produce a mix at the end of the 2 seasons.

Although the main new skill I am developing is the ability to DJ, I have definitely noticed other skills that I have obtained from this experience. For one, I have become much more determined and driven in my learning. Sometimes, when the results are not immediate, it is difficult to stay focused to achieve the long term goal however, I believe this experience has shown me the importance and relevance of seeing things through and persevering even when difficult.
