What you'll do
The inside out music experience begins at 4:00 p.m. with a private, two-hour DJ lesson at Pyramind, one of the top music production schools in the country. Your instructor will be Shawn Mercado (aka M3RC), a top local DJ who has performed with artists such as The Chainsmokers, LA Riots, Blasterjaxx, and many more. He’ll go over the fundamentals of DJing with the industry standard CDJs and teach you how to tune your ear to the subtleties of electronic music and beat matching. After the lesson, you’ll have time to go home, change, and grab dinner before heading out to dance your heart out at the The Great Northern, one of San Francisco’s best dance music nightclubs.
