The British DJ & MC Academy

Innovative workshops for young people and adults in urban London

About Us

The British DJ & MC Academy is a youth arts organisation based in North London.

Since we began our journey in 2008 we've had the pleasure of working with over 100,000 young people and adults across 20 London Boroughs, engaging, developing and influencing through the medium of music.

The academy was set up to address a clear shortfall in outreach programmes available for young people living in urban London.

What makes us unique is our ability to reach young people in their own social environment through our fully customised DJ vans.

These mobile music facilities enable us to take music to the streets, providing a positive gateway for young people in need of inspiration.


Music unquestionably connects people from all walks of life. The work we do continues to leverage this virtue, delivering programmes to some of the most deprived parts of our city.

What People Say About Us

"Great team to work with, everyone is both extremely professional and friendly. The workshops have been fun and interactive. The young people at our projects have developed both their confidence and skills"
Rabena Faried, Manager, Look Ahead Housing
"British DJ & MC Academy ran a brilliant workshop on using music to tackle street crime at an event we put on in November 08. The facilitators related really well to the young people. The workshop itself was really engaging and fun and the young people absolutely loved it!"
Rachel Segal Hamilton, Events and Marketing Coordinator, Envision
"The tutors have been really welcoming and have developed an excellent rapport with the students. Even when the singers were behaving like 'divas', their patience, professionalism and pedagogy was apt for the students. I look forward to working with the DJ & MC Academy again..."
Kieran West, Northumberland Secondary School
"Working with the DJMC Academy has been an absolute pleasure. They are really professional; promote good values among students and really know how to have fun when doing so! I was so impressed with how flexible they were in creating our individual programme and the willingness to keep going until it was perfect. And, it was perfect! There is no doubt that this day and the important message about safety will not be forgotten. Great energy – hope to see you for more inspiration soon!"
Kathleen Sorrell, Assistant Principal, Walthamstow Academy
"Once again a big thank you to you and your team. The kids really loved it!!!! "
Chinelo Moh, Latymer All Saints Primary School
