Just like every other creative art, the best way to ensure progress as a DJ is consistent study and practice. Here at beatjunkies.tv, we help you improve your skills by way of “follow the leader” drills – where your instructor performs a scratch for a fixed sequence (i.e. 1 bar), you then emulate the scratch to the best of your ability for 1 bar, then back to the instructor for 1 bar, then you for 1 bar, and so on. All of our scratch training videos have been programmed as endless loops which enable you to participate in “follow the leader” exercises for any length of time you prefer.
