Well-known DJ Simon Langdell visits the school on a regular basis, teaching the tricks of his trade to more than 50 students.
"The pupils learn a real appreciation of music just by setting up the system - then they really get to work," he says. Students produce their own DJ music mix, which will be cut on to a CD for them to keep.
The DJ course began with a music industry training module run by Coventry's Education and Business Partnership Centres.
Tony Hope, head of music at Barr's Hill, says: "The DJ course has proved extremely popular."
