The SoundBender Institute (SBI) was founded by long time friends & DJ’s KNYCE & Step One. With over 30 years of combined experience rocking crowds in clubs, on-air radio & mobile events, Soundbender Institute is the realization of a life long dream for both DJs. This experience along with numerous mixshow awards & accolades has led them to develop a simple yet effective way of teaching the art of DJ’ing called “The 4 Pillars”. In just 4 weeks a student will learn the basics of DJ’ing & be ready to rock their first gig !
