Why are we creative?

 
Band practice A band
If you can sing or play an instrument, then get together with some friends and start your own band!

Bands come in all shapes and sizes but often have:

  • Singers
  • Guitarists
  • A bass guitarist
  • Keyboard players
  • A drummer or percussionist

  Click for American rock band The Calling

Once you've got your band, you need to find somewhere to rehearse.

After a bit of playing together you can record your songs as a 'demo'.

You can give this to your friends and family or even send it to the 'A&R' department (the part that looks for new talent) of record companies.
