About me

Having studied classical music at university, it has always been at the forefront of my life. But dance music took hold when I moved to London. I came to BECOMEADJ with a love of Deep House and basic commercial music, a Traktor controller and a week in Ibiza. I wanted desperately to be up on that stage, waving my arms and making people jump up and down. What I have discovered however is a whole new art form, and a new perception of dance music and DJing and now there's no going back!
The team teach very organically - always at a pace right for you and in a style best suited to your learning. I started lessons 9 months ago and I am now producing my own techno, playing regularly and pursuing a carrier as a DJ. And I've made many new friends along the way

"The one on one tutoring is special with Mantas, each lesson is tailored to your specific needs. I learned so much in a short space of time"

About me

I am Dutch but currently based in London, I have been for the past 5 years. I have always felt a special connection with Electronic music from a young age. I started listening to tracks from John Digweed, Sasha and Richie Hawtin when I was about 13, I was instantly hooked by their style and sophisticated sounds. Listening to Techno and Tech House was a way for me to escape a certain state of mind, it has the power to turn a negative emotion into something positive. It is only after discovering the Rave scene that I really said to myself that Dj'ing and Music Production was something I wanted to do.
Im very glad to have chosen to learn it here, I have learnt so much in such a short space of time, I couldn't recommend it enough. Mantas is a real motivation.

'Mantas teaching skills, knowledge, and patience were beyond anything expected. I will always be grateful and can’t recommend them enough.'

About me

Music has a big part in my life, but it was only in my teenage years that I discovered a passion for electronic music. 10 years ago I heard “Discopolis” - Lifelike & Kris Menace,“Feel The Vibe” - Axwell, and that was it! My taste in electronic music has clarified itself since then, but I always dreamed of DJing for years but thought it was inaccessible. After quite a few night-outs, festivals, raves and house parties, I finally decided to take my passion seriously.
Last year I googled “DJing course in London”, there it was, a phone call later and I was at Mantas and Egle’s studio. A few months following my first lesson I was behind the decks at The Qube Project, playing tracks that I love in front of a great crowd, words are not enough to describe how I felt. It was my dream, thanks to them this is now a reality! Mantas teaching skills, knowledge, and patience were beyond anything expected. I will always be grateful and can’t recommend them enough. Thank you!

'I entered their studio doors with a seed of curiosity about the DJ world and came out with a fully-fledged passion to be part of it – a testament to their style and approach'

About me

Always a lover of dance music, I came across a more underground house sound on a station on my car radio a couple of years ago, having been out of the clubbing scene for twenty-odd years. In those years I had focused on my career as a business psychologist and on my family as a mother of two great boys – Michael and Benji. So when I came across these ‘new’ sounds I thought, “What is this? – I love it!” Unfortunately I seemed to be the only one whooping with excitement listening to these fresh beats; no-one else seemed to hear or appreciate the music in the same way, so I went in search of the people who I thought would….the djs themselves. I googled “how to become a dj”, and guess who popped up!?
I had a good feeling about Become A DJ from the first email contact with Egle, where I felt treated as an individual …the subsequent meeting with Mantas sealed my fate! In that first meeting he takes time to get to know you and find out what makes you tick, as well as explain his unique teaching process. By the end I was so excited for the journey I was about to embark on….it felt so ‘right’ in every way. Mantas is a brilliant dj and a skilled teacher, who is always very honest in his feedback – I enjoyed every minute of every lesson, and found a great deal more happiness through Become a DJ than I dreamed I would. I entered their studio doors with a seed of curiosity about the DJ world and came out with a fully-fledged passion to be part of it – a testament to their style and approach. Happily the journey continues and I’m loving it. I highly recommend Become A DJ and can’t thank Mantas and Egle enough :)

'When I first started the course I only wanted to learn more about DJing, but over time my understanding of how music is made grew each week'

About me

Music has always been a big thing in my family. My father use to be on a pirate radio station and has stacks of reggae vinyl and was very particulate about the sound and quality of music. In my teenage years i fell in love with house and garage and always thought about how it would feel to be a DJ and share the music I enjoyed with other people. Last year I decided I wanted to try a lot of new things and to change my life forever. I really enjoy Deep/tech house so decided to improve the basic Dj skills I had and join 'Become A DJ' so that I could learn how to share my love of music with others.
What can I say, Mantas is a genius! He is like the Mr Miyagi of DJing. The course flows at a good pace and never once did I leave feeling I haven't learnt anything new. When I first started the course I only wanted to learn more about DJing, but over time my understanding of how music is made grew each week. I have since finished my DJ classes and decided to do the production course also available at 'Become A DJ'. I can not thank Mantas enough for also letting me DJ at Pacha nightclub as it has fuelled my love for DJing even more. I continue to attend the studio to practice and improve my skills and Mantas is always willing to pop in and give you advise and help get the best out of you. Thank you to everyone at 'Become A DJ' and all the best in the future.

'The course has taken me from having no experience to Djing at Pacha in 4 months'

About me

From Hendrix to Michael Jackson, I have a wide taste in music. But, House Music in particular has a positive effect on me, I am usually the last one to leave at the end of the night! I am in constant search of feel good infectious beats, the type that makes you want to get on the Dancefloor and Dance! With the new found skill and confidence from the course, I am able to control that effect myself, which is such a buzz!
The course has taken me from having no experience to Djing at Pacha in 4 months, I could not recommend it more. Mantas has a great musical ear, and helped me understand DJing from not just a technical, but a psychological stand point. Explaining how to capture an audience's attention through intelligent mixing, and build up and release of energy. The 1 to 1 teaching is motivational and balanced to match ability. With club-standard equipment and a friendly attitude, Become A DJ is head and shoulders above other courses.
