DJ Methodz exists to provide expert DJ tuition for people in Hull and the surrounding areas. Our challenge: to offer the opportunity to anyone to learn to DJ; to reach those who don’t normally get the chance; to build confidence and self-esteem; to broaden horizons; and to find the DJs of the future.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve never DJ’d before. We supply accessible, entry-level equipment for absolute beginners, intermediate for those who are ready to take the next step, and club-standard for those who are aspiring to be professional or simply want to experience the best.
DJ Decks are now considered to be a musical instrument, just like the piano, the drums or the guitar. Therefore, accomplished DJs can be thought of as skilled musicians. We will introduce you to the very best gear – Pioneer, Technics, Denon, Allen & Heath – and use a range of musical genres including House, Techno and Drum & Bass to hone your DJ mixing skills.
We typically deliver workshops in youth work settings or schools, so you can learn to DJ as part of an Arts Award, a Duke of Edinburgh Award or potentially a Music GCSE. All of our workshops are COVID compliant, and equipment fully PAT tested and insured.
DJ Methodz tutor Santino Roberts aka Drum & Bass/Jungle DJ Poison has been mixing music professionally for 25 years, and taught mixing skills for well over ten, on behalf of Hull City Arts and Music4U.
Santino has performed DJ sets alongside many legends of the D&B scene, such as Mickey Finn, Randall, Marky and Calibre, and held residencies at local night Shinobi and in Poland with Drumatic Association.
In recent years he helped to establish the Territory events which have welcomed old skool pioneers like Jumpin’ Jack Frost and Top Buzz back to the city, as well as more current artists such as Kumarachi, Soul Intent, Madcap and SCAR.
A specialist in 1:1 and small group work, with a background of working with young people in challenging circumstances, Santino undergoes relevant training on a regular basis and holds an up-to-date enhanced DBS certificate.
Happy you seen something in me. If it wasn’t for you teaching me how to DJ, I wouldn’t have a coping mechanism for my psychosis. Like as soon as I discovered I enjoy it and I’m relatively good at it, my confidence started raising and I started growing up. Honestly, best thing I ever did is come to one of your sessions.
The workshop was very well organised, calm, kept all young people engaged. Santino encouraged and supported which enabled the young people to try and achieve. It was a boost for their confidence and self-esteem. I would 100% recommend.
