Great tips for teenagers looking to start their own band

What could be cooler than being the lead singer or guitarist in your own band? Not only do you get to enjoy your love of music but you also get to be ranked as cool among your friends and fans. If you’re going to start your own band you should know there is quite a bit of work ahead of you. Not only will you need to locate other musicians to join you, but you will also need to make sure you’ve got some place to practice and learn how to get paying gigs. Below are some suggestions on how to get started:

1.  Your Lead Singer is Everything

2.  You Want a Pretty Skilled Bassist Too

3.  Find a Secluded Place to Practice

There is nothing worse than constantly having your set interrupted because of surrounding disturbances. Before your first practice, it is probably a good idea to find a place that is secluded so that you can practice in peace. Talk with your parents to see if there is a timeframe during the day or on the weekends that you can practice. You might also be able to see if your school would allow you to practice in the music room after school for an hour or so.

4.  Be Careful Who You Practice in Front of

5.  Social Media is a Great Marketing Platform

6.  Don’t Turn Down Unpaid Gigs

7.  Don’t Be Afraid to Receive Help
