    Default CDJ or Vinyl lessons?

    Vinyl is $35 a half hour, $65 for a full hour
    CDJ is $400 for 3 one-and-a-half hour lessons (you have to pay upfront)
    My setup is a S4 + Windows 7 Laptop

    So, I guess my question really is: In your opinion, should I take CDJ or vinyl lessons, or just not take lessons at all?

    DO NOT TAKE LESSONS

    You will not magically learn how to dj by taking these lessons. It is all about beat matching and hitting cue points in time. This takes practise

    If you are going to have lessons I would go for lessons in production so you have a better understanding of music

    Also the prices you put up are stupdily exspensive and you would not be getting value for money.

    go buy a pair of turntables and learn that way. Loads of free online tutorials and then its just practise practise practise

    yeah, unless you are rich and have money to literally throw away I wouldn't do it.

    its a tough thing to pay someone for lessons, when you can just be part of a dj community in your city and it will be free

    In all seriousness youtube is by far the best place to learn techniques. There are great DJTT videos, dubspot has some interesting stuff and if you are a complete beginner you could probably spend months absorbing all the videos out there. Reading the S4 manual cover to cover and buying a copy of Ean's S4 dvd would also be a good move.

    The other advice is to figure out what you want play and practice, practice, practice.

    The very very last piece of advice is, when you have questions spend some time searching these forums before posting something. People will be more inclined to share their expertise on new, valid questions versus the 309th post about "how do I record on Traktor?" (For instance).
    Beats By Dre is like audio flu for your balls.
