That’s what DJ Amul promises to do at his newly opened DJ school, Beat Station, in Dombivli. Glynda Alves finds out how you can get your groove on…

Beat Station was started by DJ Amul, the resident DJ at Zenzi till 2008 and who has been a part of the music scene for over seven years. He is one of the major players on Mumbai’s clubbing scene. Beat Station was formed with the sole purpose of providing high quality and effective training in DJ-ing techniques to upcoming talent in the city. The studio boasts of the latest industry standard Pioneer equipment & Technics Turntables. He has personally chalked out three courses namely Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced. There is this also a special course on Music Management. Each batch has a minimal number of students since personal attention is given to each and everyone. DJ Amul shares a bit more with us…

Why did you start Beat Station?

I started the Dj-ing school because there are no professional schools dedicated to this in Dombivli. I used to get a lot of emails from youngsters who wanted to learn how to DJ. And if you want to become a DJ it’s best that you start in a professional way with proper guidance and a proper approach.

How has the response been so far?
So far it’s been great! Even though we haven’t advertised, we’ve been getting a lot of enquiries. I’ve got students from the central suburbs as well as those coming in all the way from Panvel, Nerul, Dadar, Mulund,Ulhasnagar and such.

What are students expected to learn here?
Basically all the students who join will learn everything about DJ-ing from scratch. This includes the history,techniques, technicalities, equipment training, timing of tracks — what to play at what time, various genres,how to market themselves and much more.

What made you get into Dj-ing?

I’ve always been really interested in Dj-ing, ever since I was in school. I’m glad my passion has paid off.

Is it a good career option?

Every artist/musician has to struggle hard initially. But if you keep on working hard and if one is really talented then obviously you can make your passion your career. Where Shop no 14, Arpan Bld, Ambika Nagar, MG Road, Dombivli
