Making Your Band
This is your chance to create your own original band. As a founder of this band there are many issues to consider. You're going to need some members, a name, instruments, a budget for instruments, some gigs playing concerts, recording equipment, and a presentation promoting your band.
Choose a band mate (partner). Decide who your other band members will be. Remember you need a vocalist, a lead guitar, a rhythm guitar, a bass guitar, a drummer and maybe keyboards. In Word please tell me who your members will be and what they will play. Also give me a short biography of each member. If you can't think of any friends you may use fictitious members. Give the band a name. Print and give to Mr. C. (20 PTS)
Step you have been given $10,000 dollars by a very rich, music loving, entrepreneur. Create a document detailing your budget. I need to know the brand name of instruments and equipment, the cost, and the total amount spent. Remember you will also amplifiers, sound fx equipment, and a PA for singing. Print budget and give to Mr. C (Hint... use Excel and make cells for Guitars, Bass, Drums, Vocals, Keyboard and Other)(20 PTS)

Now that you have a band and equipment create a schedule detailing your practice time and concert schedule. Remember that you should always have at least one practice before a concert. This is obviously ficticious but pretend that it is real. Remember not to schedule too many concerts in a row. Pactice time is also very inportant. Your schedule be a span of 3 months. Using Excel is also strongly recommended. Print schedule and give to Mr. C. (20 PTS)
Now that your band is playing gigs and is becoming popular your fans are going to want a CD. The same music loving entrepreneur is so please with your progress that you are given an additional $3000 for recording equipment. Create another budget. Use the link above to help you.
