DJ and apparent child enthusiast Natalie Elizabeth Weiss has decided that babies need their musical horizons expanded. She is introducing a “Baby DJ school,” in Brooklyn, naturally.
In her press release, Weiss asks, “Why should children hear the same nursery songs underscored by the same instruments time and time again?” The classes are once a week for eight weeks, starting on September 18 and cost $200 for the full eight sessions.
She explains, “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.” There will be original songs such as “Makin’ Our Favorite Beat Drop” and “That’s Why Daddy Loves Disco.”
This is the perfect class for hipster parents who weren’t able to get their baby into the artisanal pickling workshop or lectures on how to differentiate different types of plaid.
