David "DJ XL" Jones

At DFW DJ School, we aim to provide unparalleled DJ lessons that equip you with the skills, knowledge, and confidence needed to shine in the competitive DJ industry. With over 25 years of experience in the DJ business, our lessons cover all aspects of DJing, including technology changes and timeless techniques that have remained the same over the years. Our ultimate goal is to help you master the art of DJing and set you on a path to success in the industry.


As someone who understands the difference between a good DJ and a bad one, I founded the DFW DJ School to share the knowledge I have gained over the years. I know how important it is to be able to walk into a room of strangers and get them up and dancing in minutes. It took me years of trial and error to learn how to consistently receive referrals and repeat bookings, but with our easy-to-understand and proven methods, you can take your DJ skills to the next level.

Our alumni students have gone on to work in bars, clubs, and private events, showcasing their talent and passion for music every day. Join us in the next class, and let's work together to propel you to your destiny as a talented DJ!

A few reviews from our many satisfied clients ....

As a recent graduate of DFW DJ School, I can truly say that it exceeded my expectations. I initially started with one class but after seeing how much I learned over the course of 8 weeks

I decided to enroll in the complete DJ certification program because I knew that by the time I finished, I would learn way more than if I continued teaching myself how to DJ................

DFW DJ SCHOOL & David "DJ XL" Jones played an important part in me getting my start as a DJ. The 101 class is a great foundation for anyone who wants to dive in and start learning "hands on"! The classes are small, personal, and very affordable. David has many years of knowledge & exp in the industry and cares about his DJ students success. When my classes were complete; David's continued support & help over time was very important to my event business! Big Thanks to David Jones at DFW DJ SCHOOL!!

My review of DFW DJ School ... 


DJ XL I met DJ XL of DFW DJ school a few years ago. I’ve been DJing a few decades but I never took a formal structured class. I was interested in learning a bit more and filling in the gaps of things I may have not been taught from other DJs that showed me how to mix. I also wanted to learn some new transitions. I took both of DJ XL’s DJ classes. Although it was alot of review in the beginning for me, there was a lot of structure and also review of some different and newer equipment. He did fill in the gaps and I learned many new things. Additionally, he has some great suggestions about different applications you can use to help your business. One of the other things he really helped with was music organization.


In the past, I’ve always just counted on the search function but he has some great ideas on how to organize your music for gigs and also how to back up Serato and your music library. Although I have a new Pioneer DJ controller it is always great to see different set ups. DJ XL has alot of variety of equipment and software both brand new and some common mixers that you would see other DJs using. The classes were structured and very helpful. DJ XL also has alot of tips from marketing, websites, and other ideas to help grow your DJ business.


After I finished and graduated from the two classes from DFW DJ school, DJ XL and I still meet from time to time via private lessons. Not only is he very creative and resourceful at the end of the formal classes and at the end of the private lessons he writes down a summary of what we discussed and reviews everything one more time. DJ XL is very detailed and had alot of depth to his experience and knowledge about every music genre (rock, hip hop, house, alternative and country). When I take private lessons from him, he encourages me to use my phone to record exactly what he’s showing me so I can use when I practice. I’d highly recommend DFW DJ school whether you are just starting out or if you want to improve your mixing or learn how to scratch.

Thank you DJ XL for pouring all of your knowledge into me. I’ve had my first paying DJ gig since school. I’m looking forward to many more and I am truly grateful for all you have taught. Much Love!  David Edwards
