DJ Connie Von D will describe what steps your students need to take in order to become a successful DJ. She will explain her education and career path and the many rewards (and some struggles) in becoming a metal DJ.

“Back when I was in high school, no one understood my heart was leading me to a career outside the normal degrees but due to what society expects I went for a degree. It was only many years later I went back to my heart and took my performing role. We are lucky that a colourful variety of careers within the performing arts industry are more widely recognised these days. I want to pass on what I know, give advice and really remind future performers to follow their dreams. Expanding into my own business, partner of another and working within community projects for example, being Artist Liaison for Preston Pride – I am living proof that hard work really does pay off and to never give up. ”
