I was in a band at your age and had the time of my life! Don't let it get in the way of your studies though. As a singer it should be easy to find a backing band.

School notice board - Anyone want to be in a band - worked for Larry Mullen he had a little success with his band U2.

Failing that an add in the local paper - However be careful. Get your mum or dad to vet replies and use a box number.

u2? that obviously isnt a good idea, ive never heard of them.... ;-)

i doubt my school has a notice board nd if i put anything like that on it most people would laugh in my face... but there you go :P

GO FOR IT. Being in a band is great fun and a very positive way to exped your energy. Put a notice up at school and see if anyone replies.

Oh dear, without being patronising, if you haven't heard of U2 I think it best if you leave the whole band thing alone.

I am not saying you have to like U2 but they have outsold Elvis and Bowie combined in the past 5 years.

PS Elvis was a rocker who had a few hits years ago

Bowie, likewise, a minor hit in the 70's.

can't believe you didn't pick up on the smiley w-m, tut tut, showing your age lol. Think I'll just step into this conversation as a unofficial chaperon ;o)

Clairey-s, don't worry about what other people think, especially when it comes to music, I can assure you, even if you get teased to start with, they will be madly jealous when you actually get a band together.

You don't have to put your name on a flyer if you don't want to, just tell people when the audition is. or why not approach one person first who you think would be good, and then there's two of you to audition others.

I'd say go for it definitely. good luck x
