"The lessons have totally changed the way I listen to music. I was able to experiment with lots of different genres before settling into what I found I enjoyed working with the most. I quickly started to see how the lessons would also help me improve some of my technical and listening skills in my work at Radio 1 and 1Xtra.
London Sound Academy caters for every type of learner. Whether you are learning just for fun, career progression or because you’d love to be a DJ one day, the one-on-one tuition means they can tailor your lessons to your individual needs. I can honestly see what initially started as an extra skill to add to my CV developing into a real passion. I’d recommend London Sound Academy to anyone!"
