DJ tuition with a difference...

Sessions are very relaxed and upbeat, using simple and effective techniques to not only learn the mechanics of DJing, but more importantly how music works, feels and what it can do in the right hands! As everyone is different, nothing is set in stone, and whatever your genre, level of knowledge or experience, I guarantee inspiration and results!

Music production tuition & creation

Music production can be one of those things that seems like a minefield. With so many Youtube tutorials and information out there, it is so easy to get swamped and lots of people give up before they even start.

It doesn't have to be like this, and we work with so many people who have wanted to try, or have given up to fire things up and get what you want

DJ practice space, record, edit & more

Already DJing and want somewhere to practice without getting interrupted? Need to record a promo mix or rip some vinyl and nowhere to do it? Drop Studios has you covered!

We can also iron-out, edit and finalise your mixes with you if you need some work to get them firing. Say no more!

what people say about us!

Sam Music Production Student

I was 17 when I started having music production lessons with Chris. I had been DJing for a couple of years always (drum & bass) and had no idea where to start with the production side. He showed me how to use what I had from DJing to get tracks started, finished and improved plus inspired me to go to Bristol University do do a degree in Music Production. I'm now in my 3rd year and am starting working at Sony Music on completeion. I still can't believe it!

Kelly K DJ Student

I have always loved music and wanted to DJ since forever. I got a Traktor controller for my birthday but didn't have a clue what to do. I booked a session with Chris and by the end of it I had totaly grapsed what it was all about. He gave me a proper gounding in how thr music is structured and we did some fun exersises to train my ears and made it super fun! I had 3 more sessions after that, and he even showed my where to get music from and how to be choosy with it all. I DJ at my friends birthdays and still absolutely love it. Thanks so much Chris x

Mark S DJ Student

I bought decks in the 90s and collected had a load of records but never got round to using them and they were gathering dust. Long story short, after several lessons elsewhere I was about to give up and found Chris who is an absolute legend! He not only taiught me to DJ properly, but sparked my passion for it all and i've turned the spare bedroom into a bit of a rave cave in our new house and spend more time in there than I should do. I cant recommend Chris enough, he's a rare gem!

Anonymous Production Work

I'm a fairly well known full-time DJ and run a record label and have been coming to Chris for a long time to work with him after my friend who did the same hooked us up. I just don't have the patience or time to learn the ins and outs of production, but making music is imprtant for my work, so I come to him with a rough idea or a few samples and we hammer it out together. He isn't the most scientific producer you'll meet (he will tell you that), but has a very rare ability to know what works on the floor and how to make it different. I ave even got him to tidy up music I am putting out on my label. Always a winner!
