Training Your Next Great DJ

Mike Walter has been spreading the gospel of Recruitment and Training for over a decade. You’ve probably heard him speak at DJ conventions or read his insightful articles. He has proven time and time again that the fine arts of Mobile DJing are teachable.

He was one of the early architects of Star DJs, the uber-successful Multi-Op from Central New Jersey that took the DJ Industry by storm in the 80s. Since the mid-90’s Mike has owned his own company and has shown once again that it is possible to find talent and teach them how to Emcee and DJ.

Now, finally, here is the definitive product to help you create your own Training Program. The DVD will show you the hands-on approach that Mike uses to run his training sessions. And the CD-Rom has all the documents you’ll need, from the actual text book Mike uses, to all the tests that will monitor your trainees progress. Plus, for the first time ever, Mike has made available the Power Point Presentation that he uses to teach Music History.

Do you believe it’s possible to find talent and teach them how to DJ . . . your way? If so, this is the one product you’ll need to create that Training Program you’ve always wished you had.
