Ernesto Gittli

Ernesto Gittli was born in Uruguay and moved to the U.S. as a small boy before he began taking piano lessons. He met his wife, who also taught music, and together they envisioned a music school that would encourage all ages to become music makers. Gittli Music opened in the mid- 1960s with a strong focus on providing parents with an education regarding why music is important to their child long before “music makes you smarter” was ever a slogan. The couple worked long and hard to establish a well-respected music center with quality teachers and curriculum to support the greater Louisville, Kentucky, area.
