Save any lives last night? Maybe if you knew how to dj you could have. Well now’s your chance to get your hands on some turntables and show everyone your natural born skills. Scratch DJ Academy, a special school of beats that started in NYC, is opening its doors to the public this Wednesday. If you RSVP ASAP, you can get in on a free class taught by DJs Hapa (director of the Academy) and Quixotic (of Tokio in Hollywood and Dragon in Hermosa Beach).

A six-week course at the Academy usually costs $300 but get an hour-and-a-half taste for free to see if it’s your new calling. Who knows? Maybe before you know it, you’ll be spinning at the hottest clubs in L.A. or become the next Jason Bentley.

From New York Times:

Most of the beginning to advanced classes at Scratch cost $200 to $500, while private lessons cost from $80 to $110 an hour. The programs run on an academic model, with quizzes, final exams and diplomas awarded to those who successfully complete the coursework.

To participate, RSVP with your name, phone number and email address to
