Veteran DJ Lacey Harris heads up Musicians Institute Online’s new Traktor Pro course

Musicians Institute Online has announced its latest course, which will give budding DJs an introduction to Traktor Pro.

Having launched in summer 2017, MI Online is the online content provider of Hollywood college of contemporary music Musicians Institute.

During the six-week course students will learn with and be personally guided by pioneering female DJ Lacey Harris (aka Lacey IQ / Inquiri).

Harris is not only an accomplished DJ, educator and instructor, but also a Traktor Pro expert and product beta tester. Each of the course’s weekly units will be filled with fresh coursework, assessments, and practice videos guiding students through the basics of DJing with Traktor Pro.

Students can look forward to engaging Live Lectures with Harris herself, where she will give personal, hands-on instruction and answers students’ questions directly.

Students can expect to learn fundamental skill elements necessary for creating a great-sounding mix, as well as vital Traktor functions associated with the process, including EQ/Filter, FX, loops, Hotcues, and more.

Students will also find out what’s under the hood in Traktor and create a personally customised look and feel.

At the end of this course, students will curate and complete a 20-minute final recording to be used as a performance demo.

Rachel Yoon, Chief Academic Officer at Musicians Institute Online, commented: “We’re delighted to launch this exciting new course which makes a worthy and valuable addition to the Musicians Institute Online portfolio. Students can look forward to engaging, live lectures with Lacey herself, where she will give personal, hands-on instruction and answer students’ questions directly.

“In addition, the course will explore how to beatmatch, sync, EQ, blend frequencies and much more with Traktor Pro, equipping fledging DJs with a variety of new skills.”

The Intro to Traktor Pro online course kicks off on 16th April 2018 and costs $399. For further details and to enrol visit
