BABY DJ SCHOOL
Empowering the super young to mix music that is super dope.
Taught by DJ, Composer and Performance artists Natalie Elizabeth Weiss
(Brooklyn, NY) -Baby DJ School is an interactive early childhood music program that has taken the world by storm. Good Morning America, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Post, NY Magazine, TimeOut NY and many more have raved about this fascinating new education series. By using 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, puppetry 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 babies to 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. Why should children hear the same nursery songs underscored by the same instruments time and time again? Switch out a guitar for a sampler, a piano for a mixing board and a song about black sheep for a song about back beats, and you have an exciting new musical landscape that both young and old will enjoy. Best of all, electronic beats can be mixed by pushing buttons and moving sliders that are easy for little hands to manipulate. On the heels of Weiss' innovative children's music classes at Roulette Kids and in the Brooklyn "Inventgenuity" Festival-both of which were featured in the New York Times-Baby DJ School promises to be as fun as it is fascinating.
