Our Testimonials

I just wanted to say THANK YOU so much for such an awesome experience. The classes Garnish offered and the final experience at Exchange LA was the push I needed to accelerate my new career and gave me confidence as a DJ.

Matthew Naramore

This kind of material and skill needs to be well TAUGHT. The instructors were excellent teachers and mentors. They are very passionate about the craft - and are extremely knowledgeable as well as experienced. But they also are very good at articulating the lessons and passing along that wisdom so we can learn... The course was an excellent mix of discussion as well as hands-on training. The instructors also set an exceptional tone for our classroom and created an environment that was motivating and optimal for learning. Great job!
