You know those rare days you wish you could go back to school and start your GCSEs all over again? Well, this is one of them! With DJ decks having now officially been recognised as a formal instrument by British examination boards, students can now DJ as part of their music GCSE.

Quite literally, scratching their way to success! A far cry from our own days in the school music lab, but still…lucky them!

Realistically though, it's been a long time coming and should have happened years ago. Music education in general focusing on creativity, the technical aspects of sound production and the general importance of music. Previously music like rock, pop and jazz weren't even officially considered ‘real' music – the same also going for dance music, rap and so on.

As of right now however, the art of DJing is officially covered by the UK's music GCSE syllabus. So for anyone with dreams of hitting the world's biggest stages one day, there's no better time to get started than right now!
