Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this is a fun little simulation with turntables, a box full of vinyl records, and a light show. Will the audience like your style?
What's it about?
Think you'd make a phat DJ? Here's your chance to mix it up and find out! There are two versions of this cool simulation: Old School and New School. Click on the box of records to select a beat, then choose a scratch, and rock out. Don't miss the added fun of the stage lights -- just click on a light to activate it. Who's the guy sitting backstage? Click on his big sneakers to encourage him to come out and \"sing!\"
Is it any good?
While this site isn't quite hours of fun, it's a cool way to try out the tricks of the trade -- and to get a glimpse of how DJ equipment and techniques have evolved. There aren't any real instructions, but that actually makes the simulation more authentic. True to life, the Old School version is a little harder to pick up -- it's less automated.

Families can talk about different forms of music. Is putting together a mix as a DJ the same thing as playing a song on an instrument?
