Education and Training Requirements

High School

In high school, you can start to prepare for a career as a disc jockey. A good knowledge of the English language, correct pronunciation, and diction are important. High school English classes, as well as speech classes, are helpful in getting a good familiarity with the language. Extracurricular activities such as debating and theater will also help with learning good pronunciation and projection. Music classes will introduce you to musical styles, techniques, and artists. You should also consider learning a foreign language. If you can speak Spanish or another foreign language, you can apply for jobs at stations that broadcast in a foreign language.
