What you'll do

I teach private DJ lessons and point dance music enthusiasts to options that are unlike the typical club scene. I will show you local events at OC's best-hidden gems known for their warm vibes, friendly people, and most importantly - good music.

We will start with a short meet and greet and get to know your musical background (none required) and preferences. Then I'll walk you through the gear, history, and culture of DJing. Next, you'll get behind the tables we'll cover the basics of cueing and dropping, mixing, and beat matching.

If there's a date and time that would work better for you, then please reach out and we may be able to work something out.
Other things to note
I am also a foodie and know the best restaurants that OC has to offer. Everything from standard, but delicious fare to the very adventurous and exotic. Great if you're looking for quality, local eats.

I run a non-profit called Dance Music Initiative (dancemusicinitiative.org) based in Orange County. We've taught DJ lessons every week to the community for the past 8 years. Hundreds of students have taken my class and learned how to DJ. I also host events and have connections to local, under-the-radar events that spin quality music. My frequent DJ gigs keep me on top of my game.

Bryan is a very helpful teacher, he explained the mixer to us really well and he made sure we were learning at every step of the way. I definitely recommend people who like listening music to go to his class at least once because he is very knowledgeable and we got to understand the skills behind DJing.

This is a must do if you love music! Bryan showed us how to really hear the music and we got to actually set up records, blend records together and use both old school decks and digital decks. This was an amazing hands on experience. Bryan really knows his stuff. We also had the best sushi of our trip just down the road - recommended by Bryan. I can't rave enough about this experience - just amazing!

If you ever wondered about taking dj lessons, take them! Take them with Bryan! The man respects the history and knows his stuff backwards and forwards. You will come away with a lot of good knowledge taught by someone who knows what they are talking about. I’ve decided to continue with private lessons with Bryan after my first lesson.
