There’s an interesting new article in Time magazine, called Why Deejay Schools are Thriving in a Recession.  The article goes on to mention various DJ schools in the US, including DubSpot in NYC, DJ4LIFE Academy in San Francisco,  FAME DJ School in Central Florida, and DJ-Chicago in… Chicago.  The prices are also listed:

Rankin, for example, charges $600 for a month-long class in Chicago. A five-month intensive course at New York’s DubSpot goes for $1,695. Not cheap, but perhaps better than a $100,000 graduate school tab for a career that is evaporating.

The article surprisingly failed to mention DJ Qbert’s online Skratch University, which launched in May of 2009, and currently costs $60 for 3 months of video lessons.

Update: Also forgot all about Scratch DJ Academy, another amazing looking school for DJs, based in NYC, Miami and LA.
