The Scratch DJ Academy is expanding in 2013 with the opening of its newest location, at the School of Audio Engineering (SAE) in Chicago.
Scratch DJ Academy, which was co-founded by Jam Master Jay and Rob Principe, will open its Chicago location on SAE’s campus in February 2013.
In total, the Scratch DJ Academy has four flagship locations: New York, Los Angeles, Miami and now Chicago.
“We’re very excited to launch Scratch DJ Academy at SAE in Chicago. This partnership will offer the most robust programming unmatched in the industry,” said Scratch DJ Academy co-founder Rob Principe
Over 50,000 people come to the Scratch DJ Academy annually, to learn the art of DJing.
The Scratch DJ Academy has implemented its own copyrighted curriculum, which allows fans to practice on state of the art equipment, while being tutored by celebrity instructors.
“We’re thrilled to have Scratch DJ Academy join our campus in Chicago. The combined curriculums will give SAE Chicago students a competitive edge and deeper skillset,” said James Thomas, Director of SAE Institute in Chicago.
