Denon Prime4 Mixing Lessons

Hi Guys

I am looking to give my 17 year old daughter the opportunity of mixing lessons.

She at present lacks an element of confidence and suffers with anxiety and I feel with this as a distraction and something for her to focus on.

I am a mixing DJ of 20 years (retired 15 years) however my skill set was purely Technics 1210s and basic Denon CD later in my career.

I have just invested in a Denon Prime 4 set up and would appreciate if you could advise on who we best approach to get us up and running with lessons predominantly based on the Engine Prime set up and Prime 4 controller. We are UK based in the South of England

Thanks in advance you advise would be appreciated. Vic

Whilst I’m not a great teacher, I was contacted last summer to tutor some youths in the community center

My planned syllabus and approach

  1. Knowing the basic equipment ie connecting stuff up, basic troubleshooting, buttons, faders, tempo slider, gain management etc

  2. Since we are in the era of digital, how to download and put files in the right spots for easy use by whatever software

  3. Understanding the software, what it does, library management

  4. Basic music structure, counting beats, bars and phrasing

  5. Beat matching basics, initially without eqing then as the kids advance eqing can be introduced

Maybe @Reticuli can chip in. Think he tutors.
