I'm a guitarist and I've been told I am pretty good for my age and I'm sure there are lots of other young people who have been told the same or similar by other people.
Now I'm sure people who have been told this would like to take these comments and skills a step further and maybe consider it as a career.

I've seen an awful lot of bands and from what I've seen I have never seen a band of teenagers. Personally I think this is slightly ageist against teenagers as a group. Some I have seen playing instruments are better than some of the adults.
I think that as a community we need to try and get teenage bands together to perform and do gigs.

Maybe put posters up to advertising new band and a list of places that will take in or pay these bands money to perform.
It would be good to create a meeting place for the people interested in this to be able to meet and mix with other people with the same interests while at the same time creating new bands and groups while discussing their musical influences.
