Business Name: KatrineMusik Soundlicious Learning-Presents Kindermusik, a music education service for children

Type of Business: Children’s Goods & Services/Education

Business Location: Nicosia, Cyprus


Reason for starting
The reason that I started kindermusik business is because I love children and music. Κindermusik teaching is the most wonderful and exciting experience for me because every day, I meet new people and also see the beautiful faces and smiles of young children. Kindermusik is for children who are toddlers till 7-years-old, so it is the best opportunity for me to educate this age group which, in my opinion, is the most creative and promising but unfortunately the most neglected.

How do you define success?
Success is when your dreams come true,when all your goals and thoughts become reality.

Biggest Success
My biggest success is to spread the love for education and the kindermusik dream to as many children as I can and help them by giving them proper foundations for their future!

What is your top challenge and how have you addressed it?
My top challenge is to build my own venue where children not only will be able to have kindermusik classes but also other music activities. To be well known by parents for me means that I am doing good work! For now, I am sending newsletters to parents, I offer free trial classes and sometimes I organize events. In addition to this, I have my personal website, write articles about other websites and have sponsors. I collaborate with two great venues where I teach kindermusik.

Who is your most important role model?
My most important role model is my fiance. He is the most well-organized, creative, ambitious, reliable person that I ever met. He is very focused and loyal to what he does and he will not quit until he completes his goals.
