The Modern Day Music Philosophy

Modern Day Music (MDM) is located on the outside of the Clifton Park Center Mall, in Clifton Park, NY. We are a Music School that has created a whole new approach to getting people involved in playing music. Nowadays music comes and goes so fast, it is not hard to see why a person might not be interested in playing music that was popular many years ago before they were born. What is the allure for someone to attend a lesson where the teacher expects them to learn boring scales and drills without the context of learning a song that they listen to and have chosen themselves? At MDM we want you to play the music you love. If you want to learn how to play an instrument or increase your skills on guitar, bass, drums, piano, or voice, MDM is the place to do it. Read About Us and explore our site to learn all the details of what we do.

Lessons, Groups, Theory, Studio - Any Age - Any Style!

At MDM we provide Private & Group Coaching to learn how to play an instrument. We also feel that once you start learning how to play, you should put that talent to use and have fun with it performing live! The key for all students is to start off on the right foot to ensure that their learning experience is fun and rewarding. Our Programs are designed to do just that.  We teach all genres of music from classical, musical theatre, blues, and jazz... to rock, pop, country, heavy metal and beyond!
