If baby yoga seems so yesterday and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star so last century, then the newest craze among trendsetter New York parents is for you: Baby DJ School.
DJ, composer and playwright Natalie Elizabeth Weiss is offering an eight-week program to teach babies hip-hop, how to mix their own music and play air guitar with the best of them.
She teaches tots under three about electro, hip-hop and house; how to play records, match beats and create funky samples.
She believes nursery rhymes are not challenging enough. Instead she offers babies rhythm, and the chance to play with mixing songs.
Celeste Kidd, assistant professor of brain and cognitive sciences, says musical play offers young children a lot of potential.
“Young children are typically very good at identifying what sort of activities best suit their developmental needs,” she told AFP in an email.
“There is a lot of learning potential in musical play, including DJing if a kid shows interest and someone is willing to offer their equipment to a toddler.”AFP
