continued Tunes from Lady Ga Ga and Adele are popular with Ann and her band at the moment.
“There’s a lot more freedom, I can learn whatever I want and everyone is going to help me learn how to play it,” said Ann.
She added that learning music helps her to concentrate in school as well. She spends about three hours a week practicing outside of her Modern Day Music lessons.
Rob Fish’s daughter Lizzy, 13, has been singing in talent shows since kindergarten and sang “The National Anthem” at last year’s Shell Strong Stroll, which was held in honor of Jacob Strong, who was fighting cancer. From there, she wanted to take lessons and learn how to sing. Fish discovered Modern Day Music through Denis and for the past year Lizzy has been a student.
“We felt that it gave Lizzy the opportunity to get out and perform, which is what she really wanted to do. We really like their approach of grouping kids with like abilities together to learn and form bands, which is where we are now. They’re attempting to learn ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ by Journey,” said Fish.
Modern Day Music’s bands will be holding a free concert on Saturday, April 21, at 7 p.m. at Spare Time Bowling Center and Sports Lounge Stage in Clifton Park. For more information about Modern Day Music or the concert, visit rockschoolmusic.com.
