Hey Lauren! I am AK from India! I am 13 years old and I really like your music! I wanted some advice on starting a wrock band. I can't attend any shows (I live pretty far off you see) so that's why I thought of it! I do sing and I do write music! I just don't know what to do? How do you start a band? It is an impossible task to find any members!

I started The Moaning Myrtles by asking my friend who plays piano to start a band with me (luckily it was right after we saw a Harry and the Potters show and she was just as excited to write wizard rock music as I was!). Once she became too busy to play shows, I taught myself to play guitar and started playing alone. If you can't find any members, just be a solo artist! Plenty of wizard rock bands are only made up of one member. Start by writing music and once you have a song ready, you can share a recording or video of it online or play it locally! There really aren't any rules. Just do whatever you want!
