"Perfect for beginners but even the 'near pros' would still learn something."

Give this course a shot, even if you’ve been producing a while - there’s something for all levels. Since taking the course, I landed my first remixing opportunity and started working with artists and labels that I love in a few short months! 

I even scored my first entry on Beatport (charted at #10, not a bad start!), and landed a few tunes on Traxsource & Spotify too! Two goals that have not been easy to achieve before this course. The journey continues... Larry Bell, Minneapolis, USA

"You don’t need any musical knowledge to succeed with this course"

I was initially concerned this might not be for me due to my lack of musical theory knowledge. But with Joey’s clear and concise teaching methods, I was able to create several tracks over just a few weeks with one already released on Apple Music, Spotify and YouTube

The course gives you the confidence you need, it’s a great feeling! It’s the perfect starting point for anyone wanting to learn the ropes of music production, especially a beginner who feels lost at where to get started.  If you pay attention and follow the instructions on all the videos, I guarantee you’ll be making great dance music in no time and that's a promise!

There are many choices out there for people wanting to learn DJ skills, from free YouTube videos, all the way up to university courses that demand years of commitment. So why do so many people choose Digital DJ Tips? Here are three big reasons... 


As well as being an authoritative, respected and globally recognised and Serato certified DJ school, DigitalDJTips.com has since 2010 grown to be one of the biggest DJ tech websites in the world, with 250,000 unique visitors a month, and established and popular YouTube, Facebook and Instagram channels with over 750,000 followers and we have a popular weekly live DJ TV show, which is watched by as many as 25,000 DJs each episode. We also wrote the book on DJing, "Rock The Dancefloor!" by Phil Morse (an Amazon bestseller). We are right where it's happening.


Since we delivered our very first course in 2011, we've put high quality teaching at the heart of what we do. We have a proven system for teaching that's not only clear so beginners can easily follow along, but also thorough, taking students as far as they want to go, right to pro level. We prefer action over theory, and showing over telling, and we understand that coaching is just as important as information - in fact, information on its own is rarely enough! We also understand that our students have limited time, so all our training is designed to get you results fast, and fit around your busy life.


Online DJ training is unfortunately a bit of a "Wild West". But unlike many of the operations  out there, when you join us, you get much more than just a username and a password. We have a full-time team to make sure you're looked after, and we take our duty of care for you seriously.  All courses have in-course tutor help, right on tap. And if you ever need any extra help, with anything from technical stuff to billing enquiries, know that two of our team members are dedicated only to customer support. And of course, with our StudentHub and StudentLive community, you get to participate in the biggest DJ school student network anywhere in the world.

We have over 35,000 students in 168 countries. Here's what they 're saying about THIS course...

"The feeling when you have finished a track, when you see it in YOUR track collection, between the big names... you feel like, wow!"

I tried producing before - I got Ableton and began with internet lessons but after several days of struggling, I just got p***ed off, and lost faith! So I decided to take your course and after just one week it felt like I had been doing this for years! I just love the way such a complex process with such multiple possibilities is explained in a very easy way - straight to the point.

And the feeling when you have finished a track, when you see it in YOUR track collection, between the big names... you feel like, wow! - Nikolay, Bulgaria

"I LOVED it! You explain everything so well and make it very easy to follow…"

"I am a very hands on person when it comes to learning and I have been in search for a music producing class but I haven't really found one that just specialises in dance music.

You explained everything so well and made it very easy to follow. Thanks again for taking the time to make this course and for making it so easy to follow. It's definitely what I have been looking for and I look forward to taking another one in the near future." - Bryan Konrad, USA

"You can go from zero to hero in music production is just a few weeks - amazing!"

This course is so in-depth, it’s unbelievable! And Joey is a great teacher, plus you get direct contact with him which is really helpful - he was outstanding in responding to all my questions. By following this course I’ve now finished my first track and released it as part of a Mixcloud mix and produced a hip hop backing track for a local rapper. I am now so confident using Ableton live. This is just the start! - Mark McKergow, Edinburgh Scotland

"Taking this course will be the best investment you've ever made in your musical career!"

I’d been trying for over 10 years and was never able to get my productions to match the quality I expected. But this got me there! Taking this course will be the best decision you will make in your DJ career, especially if you are someone (like me) who has struggled trying to produce their own electronic musicI've got two tracks coming out this month on Spotify and Apple Music, thanks to Joey and the team for this amazing course! - Dan Lipert, Tokyo Japan

"For everyone from beginner to more advanced..."

I was already using Ableton for producing and already have some productions done, but when you know the basics you have to add to your skills to progress, and your course is pretty amazing for this. I would really say it's for everyone from beginner to more advanced. Thanks for everything! - Mattia Nicoletti, Italy

"This excellent value course has opened up a whole new chapter in my life, and I’m loving it!"

Having been a dance music fan and DJ for years, I decided to find out more about the nuts and bolts of production. Dance Music Formula was easy-to-follow for the beginner, but also has plenty of great tips and tricks for a producer who already has some expertise.  

I cannot recommend this excellent value course highly enough, it's opened up a whole new chapter to my life and I'm loving it! - Jolyon Gadd, UK

"This is on par with the level of instruction from PhD and Master of Music degree instructors!"

Phil, thanks for the "layperson" training you and your instructors (Joey and Steve) do. I see you all have mastered the art of teaching in layperson terms and the immediate feedback via email is faster than I've ever got from the schools, colleges or universities I've attended.
 - Kevin aka DJ Nivekone, USA

"I now know how to navigate through Ableton like a pro..."

I have been trying to learn to produce my own tracks and re-drums for years... I have bought various books and other courses that only left me frustrated and confused. This step by step course eliminates the confusion, and breaks everything down into easy to follow instructions. I now know how to navigate through Ableton like a pro. Thanks guys! - DJ Sprad, USA

"Being able to now confidently label myself as a DJ/producer has been huge for getting bookings…"

The lessons are very easy to understand and cut right to the chase with very little fluff, which gets you producing at an amazingly fast rate. I wasted zero time and money finding out which programs and samples to use to get me started. Being able to to now confidently label myself as a DJ/producer has been huge for getting bookings. I recommend this course to anyone at all, even if this is your first step into the DJ/producer role. - DJ Kaz, Canada

"Thanks for helping me produce my first song!"

I am a mobile DJ and I thought it would be great to produce music of my own. I didn't have any experience in making music at all, but the course has a good structure, well explained by the tutors. It was awesome - I have learned some basic producing skill that I now intend to use on a song that is completely made by me. Thanks for helping me produce my first song! - DJ Maykel Met, The Netherlands

"I don't have any software! What do I need? How much does it cost?"
The course is taught on Ableton Live 10, which is the industry standard for dance music and used by many of the world's most successful producers. It works with ANY version of Ableton Live.

You can also currently get a 30 day trial of Ableton Suite for nothing direct from Ableton, so you can potentially take this whole course without paying a penny for the software! After this you get a student 25% discount on Ableton Live Intro, Standard or Suite, saving you up to $150.
"Is it really true that I don't need any production gear? For instance, DJing on a laptop is possible - but pretty tedious... won't producing music that way be the same?"
Yes, totally true. Unlike DJing, where controlling your live performance is a little bit like actually playing an instrument, production doesn't happen in "real time" in the same way. 

It's actually much simpler to learn how to use the software and the techniques necessary to finish a project without the added complication of hardware to learn, too. There is a lot for you to learn, and having to learn how software and hardware work at the same time is unnecessary and overcomplicates things.
"I've tried to learn to produce before, and nothing's worked. How is this different?"
As with our other successful courses, The All-New Dance Music Formula has three crucial elements. Firstly, it is 100% practical: You'll be doing stuff right from the off, and by the end of the course, you WILL have a finished track (and more importantly, the skills to make another, and another...).

Secondly, it is structured to take the pain out of the process - we worry about the learning, you just worry about doing what we say! Our methods are worlds apart from dry, flat, pointlessly complicated training of the type that never seems to get results. 

And thirdly, - and most importantly - it is a FORMULA. This is how tracks are ACTUALLY made in the real world. Not knowing the secrets here is the exact reason WHY most new producers never finish anything! The course may surprise you. It may even go against everything you currently think about how music is made. But it works - and the end result will be finished, professional-quality dance music - finally!  

"I'm not sure I've got the time to do this: How much commitment do I need to make? What if I fall behind?"
You're busy - we get that. That's why the course is designed to give you everything you need to produce professional-quality dance music, but absolutely nothing you don't! So rest assured we won't be wasting a second of your time.

But also, the way it is taught is designed to work for anyone, no matter how much time you have, or when you have that time - now or later. While the eight modules are released over an eight-week period, once they are all "live", they are on-demand: In other words, you can pace yourself through the material at your own speed, taking as long as you want. Your tutors will always be there to help, for life.

There has never been a better time to learn this - you can do it using the laptop you already own, from the comfort of your own home. You can get the software you need online and be started immediately. And we give you everything you need - all the tuition, sounds, community, tutor feedback, so every second you spend on this is productive. Finally, as it is completely self-paced, you can't fall behind.
"I want to learn production properly! Will this really teach me the right way for this price, when I've seen other courses for $5,000, $10,000, $30,000?"
Reality check: We can pretty much guarantee that none of the producers you love learned via a $30,000 college degree in music production. They learned by doing.

Our methods are unique. The course is practical, led by a super-successful producer and experienced tutor, and the results speak for themselves. We can do it at this price simply because we don't have a physical school and thus all those overheads.

Nobody will question whether you can produce music or not when they hear what you can do having finished this course - not least you. (You have a year to decide, or your money back, remember - the kind of guarantee those high-paid courses NEVER offer.)

"I'm not musical in the slightest - I don't play an instrument, and I didn't do music at school. I wouldn't even say I'm more than a beginner DJ! Will it work for me?"
One of the big myths around music production nowadays is that you need to be able to play an instrument or have had musical training in order to be able to do it. The truth is that the majority of producers - including successful producers - don't have these skills, either. Many producers have never DJed, either!

As long as you love music, have a great idea about what you like and don't, and are passionate about wanting to get that music "out of your head, and into the world", you have what it takes to produce music. This method assumes none of the above.

Of course, if you can play, you do have musical training, and you're an experienced DJ - great! But whether or not you have these skills, the method will work for you. 
Just like with all of our DJ training courses, The All-New Dance Music Formula comes with our cast-iron, no questions, 12 month money-back guarantee, which gives you more than enough time to get the results or get your money back - the risk is all ours. 

If at any time in your first year of ownership you decide it's not for you (for absolutely any reason), just tell us and we'll refund you with a smile. Nobody else offers a guarantee like this.

Now... if you're still reading, it's because of one of two things: you don't think this course can deliver, or you don't think it'll work for YOU.

We've taken thousands of students through this course over the years who have been delighted with the results and the music they have produced - you've heard from a few of them above.

And if you don't think it will work for you? TRY IT! You have a YEAR to make your mind up. Take advantage of this one-off offer price, lock in the additional bonuses - and THEN see how you feel.

Please don't let the fear of making the wrong decision stop you from making the right one!
