My son has had Fender Play for a few months now, and is starting to make some progress. He’s able to find some of his favorite songs on the program and is teaching himself to work them out.
Did you know that kids who play musical instruments tend to have better memory skills, math skills, and reading comprehension? Playing an instrument is like a workout for the brain. Kids and teens who learn guitar do well socially, are more confident, develop better coordination, have a sense of achievement, and so much more.
If your teen is wanting to learn to play the guitar, but the thought of private lessons causes some anxiety, let them check out a 30-day free trial of Fender Play. It’s a guided online learning program that teaches new guitar players how to get playing in just minutes. The program is designed so that after a few short lessons, a player will be able to learn something new such as a new skill, a recognizable riff, or even a full song.
Fender Play has hundreds of instructional videos and hands-on exercises, and your teen can go down a learning path based on their musical preferences such as pop or rock and more. One thing that really helps my son is the split-screen and an over-the-shoulder angles, so he can really get in and see what they are doing. This provides a unique and valuable perspective for the new player.
Here is the intro to one of my son’s favorite songs he learned on Fender Play.
