DJ Tips In Under A Minute: Have you taken an Improv class, or thought of it

December 8, 2016 by DJ Jay

DJ tips in under a minute, I spoke with somebody today and they mentioned something about training as a DJ. And I asked them, do you mean about music or crowds or reading? And they said, no. Have you ever thought of improv? And I’m like, why? And they’re like, they just took a business course for their MBA that included improv and they said it really helped a lot as far as them running the show when speaking in public and being able to think on their feet and have quick responses. And I thought, wow, as a DJ, I’m always put in a position where I have to think quick, I’ve got a mike in my hand, this probably wouldn’t be the worst thing to look into. So I just did a quick Google search and I see it’s offered in business courses at MIT, Duke, UCLA and Stanford and that’s kind of a cool thing. So I’m going to do a little more digging, but if you’ve done something, please comment down here.

I’m curious what the response was, but DJ tips in under a minute, looking at maybe taking an improv class just to get a little quick witted on the microphone and add to the arsenal of talent, in under a minute.
