Leigh Pickett aka Oakleigh – “What can I say! Jon is a legend in his field. He has this incredible gift of being able to connect with people. His DJ’ing knowledge is up there with the best of the best. My own DJ’ing career is flying into the stratosphere, I owe the foundations of it to this man. You won’t go far wrong with him teaching you the art of beat matching.”
Jamie Lynch – “Would thoroughly recommend to anyone interested in learning how to DJ. Such a good tutor and able to teach so much within one session, seriously a good DJ tutor.”
Monica Coles – “I had a fantastic time and it was so much fun. You are a wonderful teacher. I’ve just had an early birthday present of DJ equipment so I will get practicing and come back for another lesson.”
Brendan Mills, Saxophonist, Producer & DJ – “Mr Glover – what can I say. One of the nicest people you will ever get to meet, a DJ’ing hero, incredible tutor and true professional in every sense of the word. I can’t recommend Jon highly enough.”

Tara McDonald, Vocal & Performing Artist (and now DJ) – “What I can I say about working with the Kent DJ Academy? Only great things! A truly worthwhile experience with an incredible conscientious patient and encouraging teacher who would go the extra mile for his students.
In our sessions, he covered everything from setting up equipment, using different desks to helping me create my first live mix! He really “thought out of the box” to address possible problem scenarios that a DJ may face and was always 100% professional.
Truly priceless advice, a thoroughly enjoyable experience and gave me the perfect start to begin my DJ career and I loved every minute!”
Jim W, Tunbridge Wells – “Great session with you – thanks very much for all the wisdom you have imparted!! – best 3 hours I’ve spent in a long while!”
Julie N – “Thank you for my Daughter’s tuition today, Lily loved it and your advice has given her even more ambition. We hope to see you again.”
Sam Deeprose – “10/10 couldn’t recommend enough! I’ve been using Kent DJ Academy for a few months now…. my tutor helped me go from knowing absolutely nothing about DJing to being completely confident club ready in a rapid amount of time. What ever DJ you wanna be his knowledge on it is incredible and he has hands on with the best equipment in the game… not only will he help you get better but when he thinks your ready he will do his best to help you get a foot in the door….. If you’re on the fence about starting DJing give them a call….I guarantee you won’t regret it.”
Colin G – “Having upgraded from a Traktor S4 controller to a club standard CDJ/DJM 900 set-up I was in need of an educational kickstart to get me going. Jon’s technical knowledge was really helpful in getting me up and running and he really tailored our time together to what I was trying to achieve. Great service from a really down to earth and approachable fella – couldn’t recommend him highly enough. Thanks Jon, see you again soon I’m sure.”
Nicolle Q – “I had my first session today with Jon and he is absolutely fantastic! Within 3 hours I went from looking at a lot of buttons, not having a clue! To being able to understand what they function and the amazing things you can do with them. So much was taught in 3 hours and so much was learnt. Extremely looking forward to my next session. If you want to learn how to DJ, this is the place!”
Jake F – “I visited Kent DJ academy last week and thoroughly enjoyed the 3 hour tuition given. I would definitely recommend a visit. I enjoyed it very much and it is sure to improve your progress in DJing.”
Leah H – “Thank you for yesterday, just wanted to let you know you’ve created a little magic in my house, Simon has decided he’s not even using sync and is doing what you taught him and so far from what I can hear it’s very good and he’s already thinking about building a set!”
WitWitWoo’s lifestyle blog article – “So, what DO you buy your son for his 18th birthday?”, “I wanted to get him something he’d remember. Something unique. Something special. I know he loves music and DJ’ing”.
“I came across The Kent DJ Academy. And as soon as I saw their website I knew I’d found the perfect present for my son”.
“You are taught on high quality, up to date equipment and in an environment that I knew my son would love”.
“He absolutely loved it. Jon is a very patient teacher, softly spoken but wholly knowledgeable about his work and it’s also apparent that this is his passion”.
Mrs. F. Graham, Head of Music, Walderslade Girl’s School – “During my time at Walderslade Girls’ School, I invited Jon Glover to give a one hour presentation of DJ technology to a group of about 20 year 10 students. He demonstrated a detailed understanding of the subject and presented the information to the students in a way that was interesting and enjoyable. The students at first were reluctant to try out the equipment but Jon was able to encourage them to “have a go”. As a result of his calm and professional approach, all of the students said how much they had learnt from and enjoyed the session. From the student feedback, it was clear that the session was one of the best that they had attended as part of their BTEC course. I have no hesitation in recommending Jon Glover to do DJ workshops and presentations.”
