Explore all kinds of music--from new wave to punk to reggae to techno and collect tracks you love. It's not glamourus, but every DJ has had to sit in their rooms and learn the craft.  Roxy suggests thinking about how often you’d like to DJing--say 3 times a week--and dedicate the same amount of time to practicing. Don't have the tools to practice? Get in where you can fit in.Roxy suggests setting up practice sessions if you have a friend who has equipment. If you have access to a club, ask to practice while the staff is setting up. Figure out what kind of music you want to play-- whether you want to be an open format DJ (if you want to play everything) or dive into a genre like house or hip-hop. This will help focus your track selection and help make cohesive sets in the beginning.  Come up with a name and a brand that you connect to.  Roxy says,  music is a passionate thing,make sure the image and music you're putting out there reflects you and is something you can stand behind. Upload your mixes. Make a website or use YouTube, SoundCloud or another online space to share your sets.Make your name. Find your format
