Eskay’s Music Lessons Hosts Student Showcase

When Sarah Khan booked the recital hall at Adelphi University’s Performing Arts Center two years ago for a 2018 music showcase, her Eskay’s Music Lessons was in its infancy and it would be a couple of months before she landed her first student. Fast forward to the present day and Khan’s business boasts about 100 clients in numerous communities including Syosset, Jericho, Manhasset, Great Neck and Old Westbury. The Brookville resident’s drive and determination led to this recent showcase (she preferred to not refer to it as a recital because “…sometimes people think of recitals as being serious and this is very much the opposite.”) The free event was purely voluntary for the participants and a chance for family and friends to experience the students’ progress.

Jericho Singer-Songwriter Sarah Khan Releases Sophomore EP

As a junior high school student growing up in the Jericho area, Sarah Khan got bit by the MTV bug—hard. Having started out playing the piano at the age of 9, the future owner of Eskay’s Music School got swept up in the video music channel during its ‘80s height. It was the impetus for a love affair with pop that’s translated into Dust It Off, Khan’s forthcoming EP. She fondly remembers what it was like as a suburban kid getting her appetite whetted in a way that inspired her to hit the recording studio. Read the complete article ->

Rising stars on Long Island

Newsday – October 15, 2019 – Khan released her single “Home” from her EP “Dust It Off.” She has been singing since she was a girl and would spend hours on the swings singing to radio hits, especially those by Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey. In her 20s she honed her singing and songwriting skills and performed frequently at the Manhattan club Bitter End. She had planned for “Home,” written while she was looking for a mall parking space, to be her only song, but says the recording process was so fulfilling that she wanted to do a six-track EP. Upbeat and positive best describe Khan’s music, such as the title track with its message about being resilient or the electro pop beat of “Home.” When not working on her songs, Khan runs a successful music school, Eskay’s Music Lessons, based in Syosset that operates online. She’s hoping to line up some performances once clubs and concert venues reopen. “It would also be a dream to get my music featured in an independent film,” she adds.
