This post is sponsored by Fender but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.
Last year I decided to gift my son guitar lessons as it was something that he’s always wanted to learn. You can read our story why we think it’s a great idea to learn to play the guitar. We have a very musical family, with each child now playing a musical instrument including Madison on the piano. However, kids will be kids, and after a while, they decide that they would want to do something else. Kyle has always wanted to play the Bass Guitar, but with so much on our plates, we decided to hold off on it. I also didn’t have the time to take him to classes with everything that’s been going on in my personal life. (That’s another story).
When we first signed up for Fender Play (an online music learning program), they only offered guitar lessons. Now they not only provide guitar, but bass, and ukulele lessons as well. Madison has a penchant for music. She loves and enjoys it and has been begging for a ukulele for quite some time, and now that Fender Play offers ukulele classes, we thought it time to invest in one, finally. BTW if you’re going to get a musical instrument such as a guitar, bass guitar, or even the ukelele, might I suggest Fender? It’s what we use and what we always recommend as they’re the most trusted name in guitar.
So what exactly is Fender Play?
Fender Play is a complete learning app that enables you to learn to play the guitar, ukulele or bass guitar in as little as 7 minutes a day from anywhere as long as you own a computer or mobile phone via the app.
How does it work?
You receive step by step instructions from experienced instructors, and you’re also able to track your progress. This allows you to practice at your own pace and at your availability. Believe it or not, you’ll be able to play your very first song in only 22 minutes.
Fender Play is very affordable, and the cost of one in-person lesson is what you would pay for one year of Fender Play. As a matter of fact, you can get a free trial so in reality, you try before you buy, but it’s totally worth it.
Kyle learned to play the guitar using Fender Play last year, and this year Madison is learning to play the ukelele. We recently restrung Kristal’s old Fender Jaguar Bass, and Kyle will now be learning to play the bass once again with Fender Play.
We had such a great experience with it when he did it last year, that there was no way we were going to anyone else. Madison is a really fast learner, and after just a few days I have to say that she was actually pretty good. I was really impressed! As we know, there are many benefits to learning to play a musical instrument.
Not only does it enhance their brain development but it also promotes social bonding as well, and improves their hand-eye coordination. I can see Madison practice concentration when she’s so focused on learning, and it helps with her confidence. Whenever she learns something new, you can see her face light up.
