About the Studio
Joyful Musicians was founded in 2018 by Jill Hockemeyer in order to bring joy to young children and their families by offering Kindermusik classes. Since that time, we have seen the positive impact and effects of not only providing Kindermusik classes to young children but offering support to the caregivers of those young children. This is how the idea for Joyful Creations Studio came to be.
At Joyful Creations Studio, we believe that the learning process is more important than performance. Our team is committed to making sure your kids express their creativity and have fun when they are attending our classes and lessons. We create experiences that help them establish their self-confidence and develop social-emotional skills.
What is Kindermusik?
Kindermusik is a research-based music and movement curriculum. Not only does it give your kid’s brain a complete workout, it builds confidence at every stage.
Meet the Team
Founder of the business, Jill Hockemeyer, was inspired to become a Kindermusik licensed educator because she witnessed firsthand how music has had a positive impact in the lives of her own children. Jill attended Kindermusik classes with her children, and saw how many developmental benefits the classes provided. Now she combines her passion of working with young children, her love of music, and connecting young families to each other by offering Kindermusik classes to them, as well as piano lessons to individuals that are age seven and above.
Christian Urizar is an undergraduate student in the Music Performance program at Purdue University Fort Wayne emphasizing in piano performance. He currently plays piano in the PFW Wind Ensemble alongside his classmates. He is originally from Rhode Island but moved to Guatemala City, Guatemala where he lived most of his childhood and early young adult life. While living in Guatemala, Christian studied classical piano at the National Music Conservatory of Guatemala and also played drums in popular music bands. He currently teaches piano to many age groups and enjoys listening to live music with his friends around Fort Wayne.
“We absolutely love our Kindermusik classes with Miss Jill! Her studio is always so nice, clean, and organized. Both of my kids love her classes and have so much fun each week in class. I highly recommend taking a class from Miss Jill!”
