Intro to Turntablism
Learn fundamental scratching and beat juggling techniques, and begin to explore the turntable as a musical instrument.
A basic knowledge of DJing is very helpful but not required for this workshop.
What You’ll Learn
- Proper record and fader positioning
- Scratches: baby, scribble, drag, forward, chop/stab, military, transform, and chirp
- Beat Juggling: backspinning two-bar, one-bar, two-beat, and one-beat loops
- Scratch notation
Create an eight-bar scratch routine and take “The Backspinning Challenge!”
