Miss Angie

As the proud owner of The Wonder Studio, Angie loves being able to make a positive impact on the lives of families in the Madison area through Kindermusik classes.

She first learned about Kindermusik at a Mother Baby Hour meeting in 2013 and began classes with her daughter in 2014. In 2015, Angie went through the training to become a Kindermusik educator, and in 2020, she completed the business owner training and started The Wonder Studio. With a diverse background, from working in annual giving to being a high school English teacher to being a Kindermusik educator, Angie has a passion for children, families and education.

As a side business and creative project, Angie and Amberly (former Kindermusik educator) started the podcast Read Momalize Repeat; this book club-like podcast focuses on non-fiction books. With each monthly episode, they bring on a guest and have an unscripted conversation about the book and their big takeaways.

Angie lives in Waunakee with her husband (Brody), two daughters (Finley and Harlow), and two dogs. She enjoys taking family walks, traveling, listening to podcasts, eating at new restaurants, listening to music on the family’s record player, and baking cookies.

Emily has worked in infant, toddler, and preschool classroom settings, and eventually became a nanny.
