SCHOOLS

Gifted’s DJ Workshops are very popular and successful. The DJ workshop programmes have been delivered in schools for over 10 years . Gifted often work with special educational needs, young people at risk of exclusion or individuals who wish to deliver school disco’s, radio shows or one off music events.
