Meet The Franchisees - Julia Kaplan - Owner/Operator of our Dingley/Hampton/Sandringham Franchise

Julia Kaplan is the Owner/Operator of our Dingley/Hampton/Sandringham Franchise. We asked Julia a few questions so you can get to know her better and this is what she had to say.

Question 1: Assuming you already have food and water, what 3 things would you take to a deserted island?

Definitely my family, some card and board games so we don’t get bored, and my pillow.  I wonder what it is about so many of us franchisees loving our own pillows so much?!

Question 2: Who is your favourite band/musician at the moment?

I could never narrow it down to one.  I love musicals and most other genres.  I am always either singing along or choreographing dances in my head as I listen.  I used to do Latin dancing, so Latino music is always on my playlists!

Question 3: What superpower would you like to have and why?

This is such a hard one because there are so many superpowers that would help people in different ways! For myself, I would love to have the ability to rewind time just for brief moments whenever I want, so I can experience all the wonderful memories in my life again.

Question 4: What are 3 pieces of advice you would give to a child as they embark on their life’s journey?

1. Celebrate every achievement. Hard work always deserves to be acknowledged.  Celebrate milestones too! I know people who stop celebrating their birthdays as they get to a certain age, and I can never understand why!

2. Surround yourself with people who believe in you, who build you up and want to see you succeed – whatever that may look like for you.

3. Never be afraid to ask questions or to question the authority or adults in your life – your voice is important, and your opinion valuable, no matter how young you are.

Question 5: What’s the best thing about being a Mini Maestros Franchisee?

This is an emotion inducing question! In our classes, I quite often sit back for a moment, look around at our wonderful families, and marvel at how lucky I am to do what I do. I am a child at heart, and as corny as it sounds, I really feel that I can see every child’s heart. I love their natural curiosity, their desire to learn about their world, and to live every moment to it’s fullest. I love watching them interact with each other in our classes, and seeing the joy in their carers’ eyes as they watch their little ones enjoying themselves and learning valuable music and life skills.
