“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
DJ / Brisbane

“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!”

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 world famous clubs, such as Waters, Marbella and Chronicle. 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 15 years of his career as a DJ and producer.

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

“I had an amazing first lesson at DJ Lab with Christian. I knew absolutely nothing when I walked in the door and by the end of the first lesson I was already feeling confident and off to a great start. It was fun and Christiian is a great, approachable teacher.”

Ebony Coriakula

“Awesome 90 minute lesson with Christian, really explained things well and a nice relaxed easy environment to learn. Will be booking a complete course with these guys for sure, highly reccommend!”

David Williams

‘Great business that Jay and Christian have. Starting from scratch they have been awesome helping build up my skills and drop beats like a ministry of sound DJ. Highly reccommend for any level. Looking forward to repping some DJ Lab kit in due course. Well done boys!
