About This Class

The music, sound, and speaking can have a huge impact on the flow of an event or wedding. Done well, the right cues and music can build emotion, keep things moving, and get a dance party started. Done poorly, your guests will notice awkward pauses, feel interrupted, or opt out of dancing. How do you ensure your event sound is top notch? Hire and thoroughly communicate with your DJ.

In the course, I bring in expert event and wedding DJ Michael Ober to teach us the best methods for working with a DJ. We will chat about where to find a DJ.. Then we will dive into all the communications that should happen before, during, and after your event, so you can trust your DJ will hit the right cues, pronounce everyone’s name correctly, and select music enforces your theme and gets guests dancing.

By the end of this course, we hope you will feel confident in booking a DJ that is right for your event or wedding. With a bit of pre-event communication, your epic dance party will be well within reach. Time to party!
