The work of the DJ is not a profession that you can improvise. The DJ created the atmosphere and so is the main protagonist of an event. Besides passion and attitude, skills and competencies are required, and they only come with practice. You can learn through self-study or targeted courses, such as the one organized by the European Academy Disc Jockey based in Milan.
