“The course will allow you to master the DJ art techniques, gain information on them, have access to a variety of equipment and learn how to work with them before completion of the course,” reads a post from TES club.

Classes will be led by local artists including Bekuchi, GENERALI MINERALI, and Ika, over the course of two months at the Tbilisi club. Courses take place two times a week and can host up to two pupils at once.
