A long-term resident of South Florida with years of experience as a General Music Educator teaching 2nd through 5th grade, Sadie Klein is a musician & vocalist that teaches all genres of music, from Pop to Classical, Broadway to Jazz.
Currently residing in Hollywood, Florida, she is a music educator for the Miami-Dade County Public School System, specializing in Elementary Music Education.
Since March of this year, she has been teaching students virtually as well offering private lessons.
“I am a hardcore advocate for the power of play so I try my best to include play in my music lessons. Music is a rare time for a child to use multiple parts of their brain, which is why it is so important for the developing mind to have the opportunity to learn music.”
According to a study by Harvard Medical School, “music can make people of all ages feel happy, energetic, and alert, and music even has a role in lifting the mood of people with depressive illnesses.”
“Doctors fix bones.– Hollywood Resident Sadie Klein
Music fixes the soul.”
Klein believes that with children staying home, it’s a great opportunity for them to focus on learning a new skill like piano, guitar or voice. “Because this skill not only allows their brain to grow, but also their soul,” she says.
With over 10 years of teaching lessons privately, Klein prides herself on her customized lesson plans. All ages and experience levels have benefited from Sadie’s expertise and guidance.
“Many parents reached out to me sharing that the music assignments I gave brought their family together during quarantine, providing joy and hope,” shared Klein.
“Children (and adults) have fear, anxiety and confusion over the unknown,” said Klein. “With that being said, I believe music and arts should be at the forefront of what children should be focusing on because of the healing power of music.”
Klein has two offerings available on her website:
