Looks pretty good. I'm not sure how they would react to "another wannabe rockstar", though.

I'm not saying you are, and I admire you for going after music. I wish I could do that too. Slim chance of doing it, but it would be sweet. But it doesn't look good on paper, sadly. I know from experience, trust me.

Try adding some BS that makes you look more dignified and professional. That's all a resume is, anyway. Be professional (even if it's a tiny bit fake/overdone), and then spend your well-earned money on music/fun stuff. They won't know

BTW, you're 16 and a senior?

18 and a senior here.

Say that you PLAY the drums and piano, not "have tinkered around with them". They won't know, and it makes you look more confident and a little bit more professional. Being confident will get you anything- girls, jobs, money, anything. Not cocky, just confident.

Add some educational interests too. If you like computers, say you're interested in computer science, for example. If you like cooking food, say you're interested in the culinary arts (this will DEFINITELY get you a McD's job... lol). You know, just spice everything up. Make it look like you love education and learning.

EDIT: Oh yeah, and if you speak any other languages, put that down! They LOVE multilingual people. In Texas, speaking Spanish = 200% higher chance of getting the job. Hell, some jobs down here actually REQUIRE basic Spanish. But that's here.

I made a resume a while ago but I left out the "hobbies" section. I just thought that employers wouldn't care about what I enjoy doing. Is it important? If it is I'll have to put that part in my resume.

For a professional resume hobbies is usually an optional extra. It's much more important to provide detail on your previous work experience, such as what responsibilities you had, tasks where you were required to act independantly, etc. My CV's first page is all the professional stuff, but I have a second page of hobbies, personal information, etc which employers can read if they want or throw away if they don't care.
