Louise opened her very own Kindermusik Studio in the Fall of 2005, right in her basement! Kindermusik with Louise offered classes at all levels for parents and children from all over to participate in a program that has become known as the world’s leader in musical and developmental learning for children. In June of 2007, Kindermusik with Louise received the prestigious Maestro award for achieving such a fast-growing program. Louise’s studio has been recognized as one of the Top 1% in the World! Her team has continued to grow over the past few years, and she feels very fortunate to have such exceptional educators working with her.
In June of 2011, Kindermusik with Louise changed its name to Joyful Sounds Music Studio, offering Kindermusik classes and private music lessons in piano, guitar, and much more. Louise and her team have maintained Kindermusik Maestro Status every year since 2007, thanks to the tremendous support of the surrounding communities.
