My childhood dream of starting my own band—a pop-rock band that is—clung to me up to my adolescent years. I have always carried the idea of performing live onstage in vast arenas around the world with my fellow band mates. Geared with the best of musical instruments such as electric guitars, bass, drums, and a complete set of amplifiers such as Bogner alchemist, we would definitely captivate countries around the globe with our music.

I can almost see the image of my band on the covers of our very own record-breaking albums filled with various pop-rock songs to top the charts.
On the spur of the moment, I have thought why not make this a reality? Well, it won’t be that easy. But I think, here is how.
- First, you should start to recruit members. Collaborate with them and develop a friendship. Remember, this will not be a one-man show, work as a team.
- Second, pick your instruments and assign who plays what—do not forget the vocalist, bassist, guitarist, etc. Those are the essentials.
- Third, rock on. Compose and create music. Create art. Be the best you have always wanted to be. You are now one step closer to your dreams, show them!
