We had the good fortune of connecting with DJ Aloona and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi DJ, can you tell us about what you are most excited or proud of in terms of the business you’ve built?
I built the business and skills that I can share with people now. I am delighted that I went to the point where I can teach people to play music and not keeping my talent only with me. And I am enjoying to see their happy faces when they learn DJing. It makes me very happy.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I’ve been djing for over 10 years at the sexiest parties all over the world. I have played Burning Man, Miami Music Week, Art Basel, and many others! Music is my passion, and I got to the point when I want to share all my knowledge with people who are also passionate about music and want to have that dream lifestyle of a DJ who is always surrounded by gorgeous models and is always welcome to any party! This is the life of all my DJ friends have. But it is not as easy as people think, because you have to know what you’re doing – if you try to enter this world and they find out you don’t know what you are doing, you will be kicked out of the community forever. That’s why I decided to open a DJ school and do classes online or private lessons in my studio in Miami and teach everything people need to know. And for the ladies who want to be a DJ, it is twice as difficult to prove that you are a real DJ because people tend to think that you are there only because you have a pretty face or you slept with someone to get there. This is why it is very important that you do everything right and not make any mistakes. Because once you make a single mistake, you will become a joke in the community, and your career is over forever. I teach my students how to avoid making these mistakes. I teach the DJ skills, what equipment you need, and how to use it, and also guide them on how to talk to club owners, promoters, and other DJs. Because you need to know exactly how to talk – and how not to talk – to these people. I also show to my students exactly what DJ sets to bring to any type of private event, how to find new gigs, and how to succeed in this business. I also show how to utilize social media to sell your services, discover your unique style, and much more. My goal is to have my students playing their first live gig in less than one month.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I am passionate about tennis, and I improve my skills every day. I would take my friend to tennis clinics or a nice long walk in Venetian Causeway. I am a pescatarian, but I try to eat less fish and more vegetables. So, I would take my friend to a sushi place. I really love Novikov and Makoto. Also, when the lockdown is over, I would like to go to La Serenuse at Four Seasons.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I moved to the US by myself and didn’t know anybody here. So, I had to open the closed doors personally what was not simple in the beginning. But I am cheering that I met great people here in Miami who grow very close friends of mine. Who encouraged me to build my DJ career, believed in me, and trusted me. I am incredibly appreciative of having such reliable friends in my life.
