It’s 2017 and the internet has finally given us our very own rockstar. Fender (you may have heard of them before) is rocking our world with a new subscription based online lesson platform that’s making screen time, learning time. It’s called Fender Play and it’s amazing for teaching teens guitar.
Teaching Teens Guitar
If there’s one thing our family is loving right now is that our son’s musical interests have finally met their match. We’re super excited that he can finally get in the lessons he has always wanted to take.
Let me fill you in on the story. He’s had a guitar since he’s been single digits. He tried to talk me into lessons several times. It was either too much of a time crunch or too expensive to get someone to teach him how to really play the guitar. Not to mention the logistics of making sure that he could get to his lesson on time or if it was going to be a conflict with sports practices or even homework for that matter. Fender Play is a game changer for our son’s schedule, there’s nothing that’s going to stop him now.
Fender Play- Song Based Learning
When I found out that he could take lessons online with Fender Play there was no question, I was signing him up. When he found out Fender Play is song-based he didn’t need any convincing. Breaking them down to the basics while teaching him in a context he was familiar with really helped him make sense of what they were trying to teach.
Based On Your Preferences
Love Country? Is Pop your thing? Do you want to ROCK? One of our favorite things about Fender Play is that lessons are based on your musical preferences. My son loves that he has choices and gets to play songs he already loves. On top of that, the lessons are split-screen and an over-the-shoulder angle that provides a unique and valuable perspective that helps him remember it the next time he wants to play a particular song on his own.
