The Scratch DJ Academy is opening a new location, it announced last week, creating a surprising partnership with the School of Audio Engineering (SAE) in Chicago, Illinois. This makes it its fourth flagship location after starting in New York, then Los Angeles and Miami with eight additional satellite locations.

“We’re very excited to launch Scratch DJ Academy at SAE in Chicago. This partnership will offer the most robust programming unmatched in the industry,” says Scratch co-founder Rob Principe.

From the director of SAE, James Thomas, “We’re thrilled to have Scratch DJ Academy join our campus in Chicago. The combined curriculums will give SAE Chicago students a competitive edge and deeper ski*lset.”

Scratch DJ Academy was founded in 2002 by Rob Principe and the late Jam Master Jay, of Run DMC fame, to raise the barrier to entry in the music production profession with top flight instructors. As their website puts it, “If jazz can successfully be taught at every major university around the world, why isn’t the same done for the art form of the DJ?” It may only be fitting as, after all, Chicago is known for giving the disco-to-electro scene its “Godfather of House.”
