Welcome, all beginner students to our upcoming FREE DEMO SAXOPHONE class on YouTube Live! In this introductory class, we hope you’ll fall in love with SAXOPHONE and MUSIC-MAKING with Mr. Kirk!

So please mark your calendars for July 26th at 5 PM EST. log on to youtube, and
enjoy a FREE Beginner's SAXOPHONE Introductory Lesson. And feel free to share the Free YouTube Class Link with your friends and family! The more the merrier.

Kirk Habana was born and raised locally in Westchester, NY. He recently graduated with an Artist Diploma, and his Masters Degree in Saxophone Performance from the Schwob School of Music in GA. Before that, Kirk attended Bob Jones University in SC where he studied Piano Pedagogy. As a Graduate Instructor at Schwob, Kirk lectured and taught lessons. He also performed in the top ensembles: Wind Ensemble, Jazz Orchestra, and Philharmonic. 
This training in both instruments provides Kirk a unique teaching style... it combines the piano's pedagogical history with the saxophone's versatility. He owes this to his teachers: Joseph Girard, Wendy Warner, and Tatianna Muzanova.
As an educator, Kirk has presented along the East Coast. These include masterclasses, clinics, lessons, sectionals, and coachings at schools, colleges, and universities. He also currently serves as an adjunct professor of saxophone at LaGrange College.
Kirk's studios have won awards and have succeeded at auditions, even at the college level. He has had private studios in NY and SC, and has worked at several studios in GA.
Kirk has now returned to NY. He currently works for the Academy's New Jersey, Rockland, and Westchester division. He also maintains a private studio in NY, and teaches virtually to students out of state. In his free time, he likes to learn new things, currently, it's marketing.

The saxophone is a misunderstood instrument. You see, it’s easy to learn, but hard to get good at. Part of this is because it’s the youngest member of the instrument family and many people didn’t know how to teach it…. until now. 
Come learn the new way of learning the saxophone from the beginning. Beginners, learn how to get started right so you’re set up for success. Everyone else, see the better way to do things so you don’t have to struggle like others before you.
See you at the Live Stream!
