Hi, I'm Emma Short-E!

I have been scratching since the year 2000, when I discovered I had a love for fr-fr-fresh scratching and funky hip hop.

After much time spent learning techniques and developing my flow (which wasn’t always easy), I now love to break things down for anyone who wants to improve their scratching or who might be struggling with the art.

I founded Studio Scratches in 2008, launched School of Scratch in 2014 and am dedicated to helping YOU become excellent at the art of scratching!

I have a passion for sharing knowledge and encouraging and inspiring others to achieve their dreams.

Frequently Asked Questions

What equipment do I need?
You will need a DJ controller which has a crossfader that is suitable for scratching. If you can adjust the crossfader so the sound cuts in instantly (sharp setting), this is suitable. You’ll also need an internet connection to log into the course and watch the videos.
When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.
You scratch hamster and with your right hand on the crossfader, but I scratch regular and / or with my other hand on the fader. Can I still learn and benefit?
Absolutely! Scratching can be broken down into moving the record backwards and forwards whilst opening and closing the crossfader. Simply take these principles and apply it to whichever hand you use on the crossfader, hamster or regular.
I am a complete beginner, I am worried I am not good enough to join.
Please don’t worry! You are the reason this course was created! Complete beginners are catered to and walked through the process. You’ll be cutting it up fresh in no time!
