Instructor Biography

Mark Cochrane, Head DJ Trainer @ DJTutorial.com

At 33 years of age, I've been mixing for over half of my life. I started mixing when I persuaded my parents to buy me a set of Technics 1210 turntables at the age of 16. My mum said that it was going to be a "5 minute wonder" at the time... she had no idea what she had helped to create.

It was only a couple of years before I started DJing in clubs around the UK. This then led to producing my own tracks under various pseudomyms. Then in 2007 I developed DJTutorial.com to try to bridge the gap between internet technologies and DJ training. Shortly after that I created WarpingAbleton.com which has fast become the world's leading DJ Services website which offers support to Ableton Live, Traktor and other Digital DJs.

The lectures found on this site are a combination of material from DJTutorial.com and WarpingAbleton.com to provide the very best training at an extremely low cost. I hope you enjoy this material and look forward to reading your comments.
