Emma Holmes - Being Deliberate & Taking Action to Live the Life You Imagine

"Most of my work is remembering the truth of who I really am."

-Emma Holmes

Emma Holmes has a passion for creating and living life on purpose.

Emma has been scratching since the year 2000, when she discovered she had a love for fr-fr-fresh scratching and funky hip hop. After much time spent learning techniques and developing her flow, she found a way to break things down for anyone who wants to learn the art. She founded Studio Scratches in 2008 and opened School of Scratch in 2014 and is dedicated to assisting her students to become excellent at the art of scratching. School of Scratch is one of the world’s leading online schools and Emma has built a supportive community to help people learn how to scratch DJ, using a complete set of video tutorials which form her ultimate ‘how to scratch’ DJ course.

Emma applies these same skills as a life coach, where she breaks things down for anyone who wants to learn how to create a more deliberate life. Emma shares a philosophy inspired by this quote by Henry David Thoreau: “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined.” Emma’s coaching clients describe her as: calm, awesome, calm, kind, non-judgmental, and possessing an abundance of positive energy.

Emma is an avid surfer, skateboarder, traveler and music lover. She currently resides in the UK and considers herself most at home in Hawai’i.
