Babies! Do you know what babies are good for? Cuddling, drooling, peeing in their own pants and crying on occasion, not being DJ’s! It’s bad enough I live in a house with a teenager who wants to be a music producer, now tiny little babies wanna get in on the act too? From Baby DJ school:
Baby DJ School, an eight-‐week early childhood music program led by acclaimed DJ and musician Natalie Elizabeth Weiss, will soon make its anticipated debut. On September 18, original songs such as “Makin’ Our Favorite Beat Drop” and “That’s Why Daddy Loves Disco” will transform the ordinary Mommy-‐and-‐me sing-‐along experience into an educational escapade into the wonderful worlds of electro, hip-‐hop, and house! Through singing, movement and interactive technology, little ones will be introduced to playing and handling records, mixing and matching beats and creating fun and funky samples using modern DJ equipment. Baby DJ School will encourage babiesto love dance music and appreciate the way it’s made in a family-‐friendly, positive environment! Baby DJ School is presented by Cool Pony Crown Heights, Brooklyn’s premiere music venue, vinyl haven and vintage clothing store.
Natalie, the instructor of the class has worked with bands like LCD Soundsystem and The Psychedelic Furs. I suppose of you are way into music and are looking for a fun thing to do with your baby, this sounds like the class to take them too, and I’m sure it’s a lot less obnoxious than Gymboree. As cynical as I am about parents putting their own hipster ideals onto their kids, I bet you could probably network with some pretty cool parents at this thing, at least those willing to shill out 200 bucks to have their baby mess around with some turntables.
