(Reuters)-- Pumping out the sounds, 19-year-old Jack dreams of being the new David
Guetta. And to make that dream come true, he's been learning the tricks
of the trade at a school in Paris for DJs and music producers.
no boring homework here for Jack and his 10 classmates, just hour after
hour of working on tunes. "You get your computer, you start at it and work hard. We work on the
synthesizers, working all the buttons to get a better sound, more
presence... even sounds that can't be heard. You really have to work hard
because it's important in music, they are what give it the groove!"
The school has trained budding DJs for 20 years and Jeremy has been
teaching here for seven. He says that even if it can all be learnt on
the job new technology is making it harder so lessons help students to
get a headstart.
Jérémie , one of the instructors said this, "This job is more about making other people happy rather than making
yourself happy. You look out into the audience to get appreciation, but
you really have to get into that mindset, you're there for other people
to make sure that they are enjoying themselves."
200 students graduate every year from the school's three branches across
the country, ensuring that in France, the party will always go on.
