Love music? Learn to DJ at your own wedding!


If you’ve been reading Green Wedding Shoes for awhile, you know that we love music and especially good music at your wedding. We’re always on the lookout for the newest twists on weddings and this idea from Scratch Weddings is just too rad! Courtesy of Scratch Weddings, couples can have a “scratch off,” which will find the couple having a fun DJ battle in front of their wedding guests! How fun for couples that love music!

To get the word out, we are throwing a workshop here in LA where couples that love music can join us to learn the basics of scratching. Super fun, right?! Scratch WeddingsThe Scratch Academy also has classes in NY, LA and Miami for those interested but not able to make the party, so be sure to check out their site for the details.

The workshop (more like a party!) will take place the evening of Thursday, Feb 16th at their academy here in LA (westside).

Scratch DJ Academy was co-developed by Jam Master Jay of Run DMC and is the world’s first and leading DJ and music production learning center. They offer 15 course options for music enthusiasts with skill levels from beginner all the way up to professional DJ!  They use a copy righted curriculum and celebrity DJ instructors working with state of the art equipment to train their students. Students can sign up for group classes or private lessons and are always welcome to come in for free supervised or open studio practice sessions.
