Sarah has been teaching the violin for over 27 years. She is especially gifted in teaching young students and those with special needs.
Sarah Van Kleeck is the creator of Practice Monkeys, an online LIVE platform where students meet with Mrs. Van Kleeck four days a week for live guided practice in violin and piano.
Sarah recognized that the greatest difficulty for any student in learning the violin is not what happens in the classroom but what happens in the practice room. As a result, Sarah launched Practice Monkeys with a flipped-classroom format where the student studies as home and practices with the teacher.
As any experienced teacher will tell you, practice does not make perfect. Perfect practice makes perfect, and that's where Sarah and Practice Monkeys comes in.
