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

"It has been a pleasure to work in partnership with The DJ and MC Academy over the last couple of years. They have shown dedication and commitment to the projects at our youth centre and the young people have responded with great enthusiasm for the DJ'ing and Mc'ing projects. A young person who attended a DJ course in June said – ‘More people know me and I feel more confident speaking on the mic to them. Over the summer I DJ'ed more and spoke on the mic and taught other people. I also showed older people how to use the decks."
Kate Smith, Youth Development Worker, Oasis Enfield, EIYCT
