“Highly recommend lessons from one of Brisbane’s best local djs. Jay was very keen to get you started from the moment we discussed lessons. From beat matching, music theory, playlists, Jay covers it all. Every lesson you would learn more and receive great constructive feedback.”

Jason Whyte

DJ / Brisbane

“When arrived for my first lesson I was nervous as hell but Jay’s calm and cool nature made me feel welcome and at ease within minutes. He has taught me everything from scratch. From beat matching to how to arrange all my tracks so they flow effortlessly in a mix. But above all, he makes the lesson fun, which in turn made it so easy to learn. This fella has a wealth of knowledge and I’m glad I’ve been fortunate enough to meet him!”

Luke Williams

Just completed the beginner course with DJ Jay Berry. Was an awesome experience, Jay is super super cool and great teacher and throughly recommend DJ lab for anyone even slightly contemplating learning dj-ing. Much, much, much, much better than YouTubing or starting from scratch ?????

Christian Kerr

Eclectic and diverse are words that would best describe Christian Kerr’s musical approach and style. After a couple of years performing locally in Brisbane and the Gold Coast, Christian flew to India to visit Goa where he played at some of the of destinations premium clubs, such as Waters, Marbella and Chronicle to name a few. It was in Goa, that Christian fell in love with worldly ethnic sounds and tribal percussive elements that can often be heard within his sets to this day.

Upon return to the thriving scene in Brisbane, he quickly became a resident at Dragonfruit and M.E.L.T. throwing down a blend of house, progressive and tech at venues all across the city.

Christian has also performed at club and festival events run by S.A.S.H, LGM, Elements Festival, Earth Frequency, Lé Froth, Bass Swag and Open Records over the past 13 years of his career as a DJ and producer.

He also works with turntables, digital DJ equipment along with a swag of synthesizers and drum machines for music production.

I went from zero production knowledge to writing a full loop in one lesson. The DJ Lab tutors are patient and effective communicators. I didn’t feel overwhelmed with the process of producing a beat, and left the session satisfied and inspired. Cheers guys!

Jeff Chau

I started doing dj and music productions with jay and haven’t looked back. Jay has been able to help me on my way to my own goals and is very helpful in passing down all his knowledge and is very easy going and makes you feel comfortable in a learning environment. I would recommend anyone looking to progress with their own djing and music productions to get in touch with the guys at dj lab!

Jordan Patterson

I am an amateur musician looking to record and produce my own material so when I rocked up with a couple of ukuleles I think I threw a spanner in the lesson plan. Jay took it all in his stride and was able to adapt his course for my purposes. In a relaxed environment with one-on-one tuition I learnt enough in my first eight sessions to record and produce my first piece. I became a better musician, too. Thanks, Jay, you rock!
