DubSpot gives children tall enough to see over the turntable the option of taking courses in deejaying and music production, plus extras like free practice time. Veteran DJ Robyn Rodgers, a.k.a. Reborn, who has performed with the likes of the Roots and John Legend, currently heads up DubSpot’s kids’ curriculum. The school earns points for capping its class size at eight students and for outfitting all its turntables with the easy-to-use Serato program. But it’s the Youth Program that truly deserves a gold star: Eight-week sessions in both deejaying and music production are reserved specifically for kids 17 and under—all of whom graduate with a CD mix of their own music.
