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!
Do you Nina still make music together? Or are the Moaning Myrtles no more?Lauren Fairweather responded on 12/26/2014 Next question
I'm a new fan of yours and am so inspired by you! I've always been a crafter and loved being creative since I was little and I still love it. I love sculpting, and drawing, but mostly sewing things like plushies. I've even decided to take it to the next level and want to start selling my crafts! The only problem is I have no idea how to start. Do you have any tips on starting selling your products and finding the time and patience to produce so many crafts? Thanks so much!
