ACCADEMIA ITALIANA DJ™ was founded in Florence (ITA) in 2009 by Maurizio Iamartino, an Italian artist and music entrepreneur, known as one of the major electronic music experts.
The Accademia’s mission is clear: to provide young creatives with complete training and musical culture that includes the knowledge of traditional instrumentation and new technologies to make it an instrument of artistic expression.
Accademia is a real creative laboratory constantly evolving, the training offer varies from traditional courses for DJ and Producer to intensive campuses with a final event called “7 Days Campus” on the beautiful islands of Ibiza, Croatia and Malta and since 2020 also in Riccione, until the meetings “Lectio Magistralis” with the greatest professionals in the Electronic Music business. All these different types of training offer to the students the tools they need to be truly prepared for the profession through a specific and personalized teaching path.
Today ACCADEMIA ITALIANA DJ™ is a reality in 16 different cities: 7 are in Italy (Rome, Milan, Florence, Bologna, Turin, Catania and Venice), 2 in Spain (Barcelona and Ibiza), 2 in Switzerland (Zürich and Locarno), 1 in Germany (Berlin), 2 in Brazil (Rio de Janeiro and Balneário Camburiú), 1 in Croatia at Zadar and 1 in Malta.
A result made possible thanks to the continuous dialogue and collaboration with international artists and world-leading companies in the production of music equipment and softwares, as well as strong are the selection of official ACCADEMIA ITALIANA DJ™ tutors, who are carefully chosen considering their experience, technical knowledge and communication skills, the same tutors twice a year must take, and pass, internal examinations.
As completion of training courses, students are invited to participate in music and radio shows organized precisely to demonstrate the skills acquired and make themselves known to the general public.
