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 40,000 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

"It was a really fabulous afternoon and the groups and staff had a great time so thank you so much!"
Kirsty Palmer, Co-ordinator, The Royal London Society for Blind People
"The British DJMC Academy have been warmly received by our students, who have loved the opportunity to experience writing lyrics and then getting the chance to perform them on a microphone. Their staff are extremely friendly and seem to have a lot of experience working with and supporting students."
Andrew Louis, Curriculum Co-ordinator & Music Teacher, Enfield Secondary Tuition Centre, Eldon Site
"DJing was great! The students had a fantastic time, even played a couple for us old teachers, which went down well"
Gwyneth Gibson, Teacher, St Mary's High School, Cheshunt
"The workshop was great. The tutors showed the young people how to set up the decks, they had time on the mic, beat matching, and brainstorming for their radio station. Time went really quick and the young people were really engaged!"
Hayley James, Sports Development and Social Inclusion Officer, Barnet FC Community Trust
"The British DJ & MC Academy delivered an excellent specialised course to young people as part of the Greenwich Summer University that was both lively and focused. I was particularly impressed by how the tutors and guest speakers not only provided expert advice and guidance in music and DJ skills but also provided an insight into future careers and improving aspirations that was delivered with enthusiasm and passion…I was also massively impressed by the resources and in particular the 4×4! Very cool!"
Peter Webster, Greenwich Council
