An Interview with Paul Cassella about Dj Lessons
Paul Cassella, Owner & Teacher
Q- What is LI Dj School?
A- We are a disc jockey school that teaches the aspiring dj the tools of the trade though our dj lessons. I teach you what you want to learn.
Q- Where are you located?
A- Haha- We don’t have a physical location. We come to your house and teach you the classes from your living room.
Q- What seperates you from other schools?
A- I remember being in the classroom and remember how difficult is was to concentrate. We got rid of the desks, chalkboards, garbage cans and replaced them with a new enviornment that enhances learning. You get one on one attention from an experienced instructor.
Q- I have some previous experience do I have start at the 1st class?
A-I have a class structure in place but like i said YOU LEARN what you want too.
Q- Do i need to purchase any equipment?
A-You need to own a pair of noise canceling headphones with a long cord (because your probably going to be dancing) I don’t recommend purchasing equipment ahead of time. If you get to the third class i’m going to want you to purchase the mixtrack pro (currently at $300) or a similar inexpensive controller. The next thing i would get is a laptop because carrying a computer around is a drag.
Q- What is your experience?
I have 25+ years as a mobile disc jockey. I’ve seen the equipment change from tapes to computers. I’ve influenced people around me to start and i feel when i’m given someone’s ear, i make it as easy as possible. I encourage people to take a dj lesson with me.
