Crayola® DJ Application Launches!
As the Mom of a 4 and a 6 year old, music has been front and center for our family. Whether it is a living room dance party, a sing-off in the back seat of the car or background music for an art project, music is a big part of our world. My son recently asked what a record player was and he asked me if I knew any DJ’s. We are definitely in a new world of technology and I am excited to help spread the word about a new tech app that is perfect for kids who love music and using his creativity, like my inquisitive 6 year old son.
If your kids have asked if they could “Be the DJ”, then they will love the new Crayola® DJ, a cool and unique music creation app for kids, ages 6-10. Kids can learn the basics of music production, as well as mixing and scratching music just like a real DJ!
There are almost 100 exclusive tracks (created by professional DJ’s) and gives them access to 5 musical styles, including Hip Hop, Pop and Dance. In addition, users are allowed to “Mix it”; kids can easily mix multiple tracks simultaneously in any way they choose, creating customized, professional-sounding results. And, kids do not need to have extensive musical knowledge or a certain skill level, to have fun with this app. It’s really a great way to get kids thinking about music, melodies, rhythm and beats in an informal and fun way.
Once a child has mixed their music to perfection, it’s performance time! They can perform on the main stage for an audience, scratching the turntable and creating a spectacular light show with the color-coded tracks. It’s a lot of fun and they can even earn points during the show: The more scratching and on the fly changes children make, the greater the applause of the crowd and the higher the point score.
When we tested out the app, we did the DJ Battle. DJ’s can battle it out in two-player mode to see who the star of the main stage is. Plus, the app allows the DJ to save the music, which of course, is great to share with friends.
With Crayola® DJ, kids become their own celebrity DJs!
The new Crayola® DJ app is available now for $4.99 on Google Play for Android phones and tablets. Click the LINK to be directed to the site. And, for all of the Apple fans out there, be on the lookout as it will also be sold in the iTunes Store for iOS devices, for the same price, in June!
