Mama Cutsworth’s DJ Academy

In 2012, Mama Cutsworth started her DJ Academy for All Women, a welcoming and safe space that teaches cisgender women, transgender women and non-binary folks the basic skills and confidence it takes to become a professional DJ. Students learn the elements of scratching, beatmatching, dance floor psychology, the history of DJing and more. Since it began, it has seen over 60 students graduate from the program. After each season of classes, the brand new group of DJs play their first-ever gig for a live audience at an event known as the “graduation recital.”

If you would like more information or are interested in getting on the waiting list for the Academy, email sarah@mamacutsworth.com.
