  4. I don't know about making money, but maybe you could try playing at friends' parties or whatever, or maybe at school for some event if they need that kind of thing. At least you'd get to play for people, which is fun.

    Yeah, play parties... You can also throw parties, where you will be the live entertainment.

    After your school friends know what you can do, you may be able to start throwing parties with cover charges. Then you can make a bit of money.

    Good luck.
