Do you want your kid to grow up and be the next Skrillex? Well aren’t you in luck.
If you didn’t think diapers were expensive enough, a new DJ school specifically catering to toddlers between the ages of 0-3 opened up in Brooklyn. The course is eight weeks long and is taught by Natalie Elizabeth Weiss, and for a mere $200 you can put your toddler on the path of becoming a DJ with an over-inflated sense of self-importance.
According to her website, Weiss encourages parents to, “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.” I doubt the old will enjoy watching a baby drool over hundreds of dollars worth of equipment. Of course the young will probably think it’s great, but what do they know?
Check out a video of Weiss coaching a toddler on how to drop some mad beats after the jump.
Of course by “coaching” I mean, she’s actually making all the music while the baby is just looking for the button that makes the animal sounds. By the end of the video the kid is more interested in pasta than making music. Although, you can’t really blame the teacher for that because pasta is pretty awesome.
PS Part of us wonders if this is a goof, but she assures visitors to her site that it’s for real.
