There’s a line from a Madonna song that goes “Hey, Mr. DJ, turn the record on, I wanna dance with my baby.”
Forget, for a minute, that the word “baby” here likely refers to some hunky, Madge-loving beaux…instead take it literally, and then imagine this: What if the DJ and the baby WERE THE SAME PERSON?
Mind blown, right?
It could happen – a new class run by composer and DJ Natalie Elizabeth Weiss teaches babies and toddlers some of the basics of the art of disc jockeying. Curious tots get to play with real DJ equipment, get exposed to electronic music, and learn about mixing different songs.
The class is called, of course, “Baby DJ School.” Unfortunately, it’s in Brooklyn, New York, and that’s a bit too far from home for me to consider venturing there with Scrunchy Face. But if a class is ever established near us, I think my little guy would rock it…and I’m fairly certain he agrees.
Here’s what he’s told me — via our baby-mommy telepathic connection, of course — about why he’d make an awesome DJ.
