MUSC 155: The Art and Culture of the DJ

Professor Mark Katz

Led by Professor Mark Katz, this course is an exploration of the important, often misunderstood role of the DJ in modern musical life, with particular attention to the ways in which DJing challenges traditional notions of music, musicianship, and musical instruments. Guest lectures, demonstrations, and tutorials by visiting DJs form a significant component of the course. Students have in-depth discussions about the artistic, business, and political sides of DJing and get to spend time in the Beat Lab finding their own voice as a DJ.

Johnny Andrews, of University Communications, recently got to take a closer look at this course. See the full story below, and read more here.

Interested in taking this course? It will be available again in the Fall of 2019, so be sure to look for MUSC 155 in spring registration!
