Meet BIFE students who have graduated from this course...
"My journey into electronic music began what I started the DJ Techniques course in BIFE. I loved it, learned a lot, met some great people. It was good to have the lecturers there lay out what I needed to know, what I needed to do, to get a head start in music."- Matthew Flanagan (DeFeKT)
"This course has genuinely changed my life and I'm finally doing something I've always wanted to do. Throughout the year I gained the knowledge and experience I needed to set me up to take my place in the music industry here in Ireland. I have successfully set up my own club night, Altered States, which is doing amazingly well, along with my own blog which is also taking off. In the last 2 months I have played in some of the best clubs in Dublin and know that this is only the beginning of my music career. I owe it all to the tutors at BIFE for providing and guiding me with their knowledge to push me to where I am today. I look forward to making my mark on the scene in years to come." - Georgia Murphy
