CDJ Show 2016 Seminar - Toolroom Academy:Careers in dance music

Presenter:Stuart Knight
Title:Toolroom Academy:Careers in dance music
From:Maidstone, Kent

Having built Toolroom Records in the global powerhouse it is today, managing a busy team of 20 full time staff, Stuart Knight is well-placed to offer careers guidance in dance music.

In this session, Stuart will talk through the lifespan of a record - highlighting all the career options within a dance music label.

The Toolroom Academy was officially launched in November 2015. After over a decade of finding new artists, dominating Beatport and touring the world with live shows, it felt time for Toolroom to pass some of the knowledge and experience the label had gained.

An educational arm of the international brand, the Toolroom Academy aims to equip producers and DJs with the skills to build their creativity and careers within the dance music scene. Unlike many of the other educational programmes out there, the Toolroom Academy only uses tutors who are successful artists in their own right - producers and DJs who have released with the label and seen major success in their own careers.

Initially a suite of online production courses launched in conjunction with Faderpro, the Toolroom Academy is now proud to be partnering with Akai Professional and the Canadian DJ Show in bringing the Academy to a live audience for the first time.
