So many families are looking for inspiration this year on giving gifts of experience or gifts that keep giving throughout the year. This last year Parker has been using Fender Play to learn to play guitar and we LOVE it! Fender Play offers new and returning guitar players an intimate, easy-to-use online platform to learn the skills necessary to really play guitar. Lessons are song- and riff-based using popular and instantly recognizable songs, and the ever-expanding song library spans a variety of genres with even more being added in the coming months. We have found it to be the easiest way for Parker to learn guitar and when he first started he was playing a song HE liked within just a few minutes. The Fender name got him interested and the songs kept him going! You can track your progress which helps keep you motivated and look back on what you’ve done. His favorite thing about this online learning platform (besides doing it all on his own time schedule) are all the great song options. He’s a big music fan and they have music from so many favorite bands. If you hadn’t really thought about guitar lessons for your kid or aren’t sure if they would like them, I’d definitely encourage you to consider them with Fender Play! There are social benefits like uniting others and making new friends through the power of music while learning how to navigate the guitar can offer mental and physical benefits as well! If you have a kid who’s always on their mobile device (or video games), a new way to work on multitasking skills, a kid who loves music (new or old), want to bond with your teen (parents can learn right along with them), a kid who might already be playing but needs a more structured class instead of trying to teach themselves, or even just someone that you can’t seem to find the right gift for – consider online guitar lessons with Fender Play! You can even sign up for free HERE and try it out for 30 days! Fender Play also sells a pre-paid gift card if grandparents want to give the gift without having to setup an account. Here’s a video explaining a bit more:
I’ve been thinking about learning myself with an acoustic guitar we have laying around. The lessons are really great and I’ve loved watching Parker learn and grow as a musician! Fender Play just works and we definitely recommend it!
I’ve talked about how giving gifts of experience is fun, but it’s even more fun when you can include it with something wrapped up. Let’s make it even MORE fun for you to give the gift of online guitar lessons with Fender Play. I am so excited to give away one Squier® Strat® Pack and a six month Fender Play subscription to one of you! This set is PERFECT for new learners – especially those with small hands.
