About the instructor:
While sitting beside Armin Van Buuren, the greatest producer and DJ known to modern music, Talal asked a question: “Why do you do what you do?” Van Buuren’s answer was short and simple. “I make music and play it to spread happiness and positivity throughout the world.”
Talal alQaoud started DJing in his bedroom at the age of 20, and went on to create his own studio. He trained everyday until the hard work paid off; he won Marina FM’s competition, “King Of The Mix,” under his stage name DJ TRQ, while competing against 36 DJs from the Middle East, with voting based on judges and the on-air audience. This earned him a weekly residency at Marina FM. Making his way into dance music, he continued to perform whenever the chance presented itself, and believes that nothing feels better than the energy you get back from the crowd.
