MEET YOUR COACH

I’m a veteran globe-trotting DJ, turntablist, music producer and pro DJ instructor who’s obsessed with helping others achieve their DJ dreams.

I teach peeps how to mix, scratch & beat juggle like whoa — and coach beginners to seasoned pros.

As a seasoned turntablist starting back in ’95, I’ve also been teaching the craft of turntablism since 1997.

Don’t let the ‘baby face’ fool ya… you’re lookin’ at one of the first professional DJ instructors in the game with almost 3 decades of expert DJing and teaching experience.

"DJ Shortee is the consummate professional. A skilled educator, a fierce performer, and an all-around inspiration to collaborate with."

— BERKLEE COLLEGE OF MUSIC

From group classes, workshops and private lessons, to books, tutorial videos and online DJ courses — I’ve literally taught thousands of people around the world how to rock the decks.

I even made history by creating the first-ever DJ instructional video series with a comprehensive curriculum on equipment, mixing, scratching & beat juggling. (Back in ’99 when VHS was a thing. 📼

I’ve also taught for trusted brands like The Grammy Foundation, Berklee College of Music, SAE, Hal Leonard, Scratch DJ Academy, Dubspot, Rane, Serato, Numark, BPM Supreme, and Beat Junkie Institute of Sound.

Need more street cred? Peep my full bio on djshortee.com

“Shortee is both a badass artist and a gifted instructor, which is a rare combination of skills. It’s no surprise that Shortee propels her students to success, and I count myself lucky to have been one of them.”

— DJ STEP1 | @deejaystep1

“Shortee’s ability to communicate the most complicated techniques in a way that’s easy to understand is remarkable.”

— DJ MISS NINJA | @DJMISSNINJA

Okay, Enough about me. Let's get real...

Time is of the essence. Here’s why…

If you want to be a dope scratch DJ, the best time to start learning these essential skills was, well… anytime before yesterday. The second best time? That’s TODAY! 

Why waste any more of your treasured time when you could have Scratch DJ Essentials in your hands and begin leveling up your skills immediately?

Don’t waste energy trying to learn this stuff yourself, piecing YouTube videos together or suspending your scratch progress any longer. 

You’ll risk losing even more time, or worse… you may never get around to  pursuing your passion for scratching at all.

Don’t miss out on this DEAL or waste any more time…

Scratch “Rudiments” → The most important individual scratch techniques that are the fundamental building blocks of (almost) all scratch rhythms & combinations.

As a former drummer, I relate scratching to playing drums and percussion, and I teach how to scratch like a percussionist.

In music, a drum “rudiment” is a pattern of drum strokes between the right and left hands that have a specific rhythmic structure and dynamics. They’re also the fundamental building blocks of more complex patterns that drummers play — similar to how scales, arpeggios, and chords form the basis of piano music.

The art of scratching parallels drumming in the exact same way, in that it’s also based around a series of “rudiments” patterns of movements between the right & left hands on the deck &/or crossfader that have a specific rhythmic structure and dynamics. 

All the techniques taught in this course are considered to be essential scratch rudiments because they are some of the most important techniques that not only stand on their own individually, but are also the main elements that the more complex scratch rhythms & combos are created from.

Nope! Scratch DJ Essentials is an excellent course for total newbies without any DJ experience, beginners who are new scratching and even those folks who just need a solid refresher.

All skills are taught in the correct order from beginner to advanced, so if you’re completely new, you’ll want to start with the Baby scratch and work from there.

However, before you dive into the practical scratch skills, you should also watch the super quick bonus mini course “Start From Scratch” to learn everything you need to know BEFORE you start learning to scratch, such as how to set up your scratch DJ gear and how to count music.

You need at least one of these DJ hardware options such as:

  • Turntables, Needles & DJ mixer
  • Digital Decks (CDJ, XDJ etc) & DJ mixer
  • Turntable Controllers (Rane Twelves) & DJ mixer
  • All-In-One DJ Controller with jog wheels or motorized platters
  • All-In-One Portable Turntable & Needle

Plus one (or both) of these options:

  • DJ Software (Serato, Traktor etc)
  • Traditional Vinyl Records or CDs featuring scratch samples (Ahhh, Fresh etc)

YOU DO NOT NEED DJ SOFTWARE TO TAKE THIS COURSE. You can learn on any DJ gear, including all analog equipment!

⭐Digital scratch samples and instrumental beats are provided for FREE in the Scratch DJ Toolkit + Audio Versions of the Scratch Drills are also provided on MP3s (in addition to video) for those with digital gear options (DJ software, CDJs etc).

I teach using turntables, however you can learn using ANY standard DJ hardware with jog wheels or motorized platters. There are a few slight differences when using controller jog wheels that I explain to help you to get the best results on any type of deck.

⚙️ Don’t have your gear (or) don’t know how to use your gear?

No probs! The bonus Get In Gear Resource Course & Equipment Essentials Guide helps you to choose the right gear for YOU and also teaches everything you need to know to get up & running.

Scratch DJ Essentials is a  comprehensive, interactive series of high-quality video lessons. It includes step-by-step instruction delivered in a strategic order with demonstrations on both sides and scratch-with-me mimic exercises for every scratch so you can actively learn each of the techniques in real-time. 

This multifaceted method is much more thorough than the short lesson clips that I post on social media, and other free tutorials and scratch practice workouts that I offer on YouTube. Scratch DJ Essentials is an organized, go-to-guide that allows for you to go much deeper in learning these 50 essential scratch techniques.

The practice packs such as Faderless Fundamentals & Supreme Stabs are all-in-one scratch practice systems for those particular techniques.

They come complete with in depth lessons for the individual skills that the practice packs are based around + cheat sheets, a practice tracker and loads of strategic interactive practice drills, where each technique builds intentionally on the last. 

Scratch DJ Essentials is a series of 26 in-depth scratch lessons teaching 50 scratch rudiments. The few individual scratch lessons that are also featured in the practice packs DO overlap with this course, but none of the practice drills are featured in Scratch DJ Essentials. 

The full Scratch Like A Pro mastery program is an all-in-one scratch practice system & group coaching program. It comes complete with in-depth lessons, cheat sheets, practice resources and hundreds of strategic drills, where each technique and practice drill builds intentionally on the last. 

Scratch DJ Essentials is a series of 26 in-depth scratch lessons.

All of these individual scratch lessons are also featured in Scratch Like A Pro and DO overlap with this course (which is why you will also receive a discount if/when you upgrade to Scratch Like A Pro), but the none of the practice drills or additional materials are featured in Scratch DJ Essentials.

Scratch DJ Essentials teaches 50 of the key scratch rudiments interactively, however it doesn’t teach ALL of the rudiments or ANY combinations that are all offered in Scratch like A Pro, nor does it offer any practice drills to master each skill or the group coaching that is featured the full mastery program.

The practice drills associated with these lessons (and so much more) are all available in Scratch like A Pro, and you can upgrade to the (upcoming) full Scratch Like A Pro program with a discount of the full price you paid for Scratch DJ Essentials!

However, as a DJ, you CAN use the beats in your DJ sets and turntablist routines…and, of course, during your scratch practice! 

You’re also allowed to post a video online with you using the beats as a DJ would while mixing, scratching and beat juggling. The video won’t be taken down or muted on YouTube, however the video may automatically receive a copyright claim to be monetized on behalf of Urban Assault &/or Heavy Artillery Recordings.

You’re NOT allowed to monetize the beats yourself, in any way. 

You can’t use or share them them as-is, sample them for your own music production, or release them as your own original creations in any way, even when adding lyrics or scratching. 

If you’re not 100% satisfied with Scratch DJ Essentials within 7 days of your purchase, we will be happy to offer you a full refund, for any reason.

We do not offer refunds for the Bionic Beats Bundle upgrade, as it’s purely a downloadable product.

We will NOT provide refunds for purchases made more than 7 days following the date of purchase.

*All that said: Please don’t be that person who joins, watches every video from start to finish, and then asks for their money back. We can see that on our course platform, and it’s just bad karma.

Don’t see your question in the FAQ?

We love connecting with you and answering your burning questions about the Scratch DJ Essentials. You can email us directly at support@djshortee.com to get in touch.

SOOOOO…ARE YOU...

Listen, you know the value of adding scratching to your DJ skills. You also know it takes time and effort to become a dope scratch DJ

Stop wasting any more precious time, energy and money on the stuff that doesn’t get you results. The truth is, no tutorial, course or class will make you a pro overnight.

But if you study with the interactive lessons in this course, they will help you to learn more efficiently so you can stock up your skill set and scratch BETTER.

I can’t wait for you to feel more empowered, confident, and all-around BADASS in your scratch skillz! 🙌

I’ll see ya on the inside! YOU GOT THIS. ✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿  

xo,
Shortee

“I have scratch skills now!

I’m on a long journey to becoming a scratch DJ but I’m definitely more confident about using scratch techniques in my mix than I ever would have been before learning from Shortee.

I feel a lot more confident in my skills!”

— HARRISON RIPPS | harrisonripps.com | @harrisonripps

“DJ Shortee has the skills. She’s got the kind of skills that would make anyone in the room stop what they’re doing to look up and see her tearing it down on the tables which is amazing. But what’s even better is that she’s willing to pass her knowledge on to those who need it. And this will forever make her a legend on top of all of her accomplishments.”

— DJ ASH-B | @therealdjashb

“DJ Shortee’s practice drills are awesome! As someone who has difficulty making the time to practice, they’re a great way to ensure I get some solid work in to help hone my skills.

Shortee is an amazing teacher. She has an ability to teach scratching in a way that makes sense to even the most musically challenged people.”

— DJ KEELEZ | djkeelez.com | @djkeelez

“Shortee’s lessons & drills have made me a MUCH better scratch DJ! Before her lessons I wasn’t doing much more than a baby scratch in my DJ sets. Now I can add scratching during my club gigs, private events and weddings, regardless of the genre I’m playing. My clients are really impressed when I scratch and it raises my value as a DJ.

Shortee’s scratch practice drills are INCREDIBLE for building your skills. They make everything I do deliberate & intentional and I feel like I’m making the most of my time. All I have to do is focus on keeping up with her practice drills and then before I know it I’m like “WOW – my cuts are flawless!

It’s also so nice to have Shortee’s videos to guide you through your practice and eliminate the decision fatigue of having to figure out what you’re gonna work on that day. You can throw on any of Shortee’s practice drill videos and you’re off and running. Shortee’s truly changed how I practice now and I’ve seen my scratch skills explode!” 

— BABY VAN BEEZLY | babyvanbeezly.com | @BABYVANBEEZLY

“Shortee is one of the best teachers I’ve ever had the opportunity to learn from.

She chunks concepts into understandable learning blocks and creates a learning environment where you truly believe that you’re capable of success.“

— DJ PUFFS | @djpuffs

“Shortee taught me so much and in detail. She was one of my very first instructors and I can definitely say I was taught by the best. 

She’s very honest, encouraging and fun to learn from. She’s had an extremely positive and empowering influence on me as a DJ, musician and as a woman in the DJ world too!”

— DJ DIVINE LIGHT | @djdivinelight

“Shortee’s scratch lessons and practice drills are the building blocks I needed to get where I wanted to go. From the fundamentals to the advanced stuff, she knows what to teach and how to teach it. Shortee gives you clear blueprints on how to build your skills.

When I practice with her drills I can easily see improvement right away. I’m more fluid overall and have better fundamentals like record control and sharpness. Plus, I’m getting better at scratching with my non-dominant hand, which is something I’ve always been pretty poor at.

I honestly didn’t think I’d come as far as I have. I’ve added scratches that I assumed I would never be able to do. Some of my favorite scratch hooks from back in the day that I always wished I could do—I can do them now. My scratch skills are way better than they’ve ever been and still getting better all the time!”

— DJ ENKI | djenki.com

“Being able to take an online scratch course with a legend like DJ Shortee is an absolute blessing! Her ability to communicate the most complicated techniques in a way that’s easy to understand  is remarkable.

I leave her practice sessions feeling a little sore and VERY inspired! Shortee is extremely encouraging and has given me a safe space to practice and improve on my craft without judgment. I love training with DJ Shortee.”

— DJ MISS NINJA | DJMISSNINJA.COM | @DJMISSNINJA

“Shortee is one of the most talented and educated DJs in the industry. You can tell immediately upon meeting her that she was born to teach. I would recommend Shortee to anyone, regardless of skill level. She’s the best!”

— DJ BRYNN TAYLOR | DJBRYNNTAYLOR.COM | @DJBRYNNTAYLOR

“I didn’t know anything about scratching before taking Shortee’s class. She breaks the movements down into simple steps and creates worksheets for you that are really helpful to visualize the scratches.

I was so inspired by her class that I purchased my own set of turntables!”

“Working with Shortee is one of the best choices & investments I’ve made as a DJ. I’ve developed more confidence in myself while scratching & DJing in general.

Shortee’s lessons & drills have taught me how to practice properly to improve my scratching. Her scratch drills help me to warm up, increase my speed & improve techniques that I’m still working on.

Shortee’s drills also help me to create & combine different scratches that I already know to make them sound fresh and flashy. I’m now able to come up with new scratch patterns & create mini routines for my Instagram videos that have helped grow my IG to over 90k followers.

I’ve also become increasingly confident due to my lessons with Shortee and her support. I used to close up and get really self-conscious, but she was able to help me break out of my shell and perform with confidence.

I appreciate everything Shortee has done for me and I’m lucky to have her as a teacher. I feel very grateful to her and also grateful to myself for making the decision to take her lessons!

Shortee provides you with the practice tools to be successful and encourages you to continually show up for yourself. She’ll help you achieve your goals and even achieve your goals beyond the goals!”

“Shortee helped me bring my scratch skills to another level! 

She isn’t just one of the best female DJ’s, she’s one of the best DJ’s. Period.

Shortee is the G.O.A.T.!”

“DJ Shortee’s scratch drills are AWESOME! Back when I was just starting to learn to scratch, I felt a bit intimidated and I had trouble practicing on my own.  I’d get stuck doing the same patterns and I felt like I was stumbling around in the dark, wondering, “Is this even doing anything?” 

Now whenever I’m staring at my turntables and feel stuck, I just start with one of Shortee’s scratch drills to help me loosen up and I start to flow! Shortee’s practice drills help me to hone each individual scratch and combination, with ideas on how to swing them and get funky! When I’ve got something down, I speed the drill up to a faster tempo to challenge myself.

After one of Shortee’s fun scratch practice sessions, I feel reinvigorated to scratch again. Her explanations are on point and I love her drills. And it shows because my scratches get better by the end!”

“Shortee breaks things down so clearly and makes even the most difficult scratches really easy for me to understand and practice. 

I’ve learned a wide variety of new scratch techniques and I’m much more confident & creative on the decks thanks to her lessons & drills.

If you practice scratching with Shortee, you’re gonna get so much better!”

“Shortee is both a badass artist and a gifted instructor, which is a rare combination of skills. Her teaching style is clear and engaging, and her lessons are comprehensive and meticulously planned.

On top of that, Shortee is fun, positive, and encouraging: if you’re her student, then she’s your biggest cheerleader. It’s no surprise that Shortee propels her students to success, and I count myself lucky to have been one of them.”

“Shortee’s lessons & practice drills have helped me level up my scratch game tremendously. She always gives a really clear breakdown, and excellent tips on how to best optimize your technique including the nuances of things like body positioning, hand placement, and arm tension. Those small ergonomic differences have made a huge difference in my scratch accuracy and efficiency. 

I like that I can always go back to the same drills if I need more practice on a particular technique and I can increase the speed to push me to my limit (in a good way) when I need to challenge myself further. They also help me to practice more on my non-dominant side, and as a result, my scratch ambidexterity has significantly improved. 

Since I’ve upleveled my skills with Shortee’s drills, more people in the industry have started to recognize my potential. Ever since I started training with Shortee, I’m pleasantly surprised at the encouragement and enthusiasm I’ve received from the DJ community. I feel validated and accepted by this community that I’ve always wanted to join.”

“I wasn’t expecting to level up my scratching so quickly! Thanks to Shortee’s lessons and drills, I’ve gained more insight into my approach to scratching and how to make the most of my personal practice sessions.

Her scratch drills have helped me to refine my techniques and I now have SO much more confidence when scratching during my live DJ sets. Thank you Shortee! You’re amazing!”
